Don't Walk. RUN TO TARGET to pick up these super cute silicone reusable "flowerpot" cupcake molds! I promise you, I only bought three boxes. (You get six flowerpots in a box.) There were still a few left in the Easter aisle!
This is what I will be bringing to the 1st Grade Easter Party this year. Of course, I had to try them out first, just to make sure they worked! Surprisingly, my kids didn't complain.
Here's an easy way to make the dirt: Bake the cupcakes as directed on the box (BTW, toss the mix that comes with the box. Blegh! Buy your favorite brand instead!) Next, with your fingers, gently pull the top off of the muffin. Pipe in a little chocolate frosting. Return the top to the flower pot - UPSIDE DOWN! Press into place. Perfect dirt every time! Add a gummy worm.
To make the beautiful flowers, all you need are some Dum Dums (or Smart Smarts as one of our favorite teachers Mrs. Harris calls them!) and mini cupcake liners.
Flatten the liner and fold it in half, then quarters and again into eighths. With a scissors, round the top. (Think paper snow flakes.) Next, cut the smallest hole possible in the tip so the lollipop stick has a place to go.
Stick your flower in the dirt and your spring garden is complete!
Based on my test panel, I know the kids are going to love them!
