Flower Cupcakes with Peeps

Flower Cupcakes with Peeps – Kellis Kitchen

I know it’s been a while – but I’ve been having computer trouble.  Something is wrong with the telephone lines around the neighborhood and everyone is having problems.  I was hardly online last week at all!  This weekend I spent all my time with the Peeps!  I have the best recipes to share with you.  The first I am going to share is really more about a process than a recipe.  Have you seen the cupcakes all over Pinterest that have jelly beans and marshmallows sprinkled with colored sugar?  They look like flowers, right?  Well……… I thought mine could have more color than a marshmallow so I used some Peeps and boy did I get color! You can use a special recipe, a box mix, or even buy frosting cupcakes and then using my process you will get these brightly colored flower cupcakes. What do you think?

First you snip off the ears of the bunnies

Then you cut them in half.

Then you cut each little ear in half again.

After you make the cupcakes and ice them you put the ears (colored side up) around the cupcake in the shape of a flower and you are done!

    Gotta love any method that starts with “First you snip the ears off of the bunnies!” I am not a huge fan of Peeps but I can get behind snipping them in bits for decoration. Too cute, Kelli!

    Good Morning Kelli, What a lovely idea, children will love these little Flower Cupcakes. I was reading your profile and I was interested to learn that you learn to cook from your grandmother. I am the same, as my Grandmother, Ivy was my inspiration to cook as was my mother Phyllis. I have really enjoyed my visit, so I have become a new follower with Google + I look forward to many more lovely recipes.
    Best Wishes
