Spring Cupcakes…

Fancy Cupcakes Right?

051

The kiddo’s and I made these fancy little cupcakes in no time at all!  They sure look complicated, but honestly they are easy as pie!  I’m not the most creative momma like most of you out there, so if I can do it – you can too!  Just bake up a batch of basic Betty Crocker boxed cupcakes and allow to cool.

While you wait for them too cool off – cut up the smaller sized marshmallow's in half & frost the top of your cupcakes…

050Because the insides of the marshmallow's are sticky – simply dip the sticky side into a bowl of sprinkles & place at an angle into the frosting.052053
