Our dirt cupcakes are not only adorable, but delicious!  Start out with your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe, or you can cheat like I did and use a box mix!  The end of school year is winding down for my kids, so we are busy!  I am all about getting some extra help some days, so using a premade mix did the trick!

Let cupcakes cool completely and then start decorating!  I took about 10-15 Oreo’s and added them to my blender, mix until crumbly and it resembles dirt.  Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting, dip in the Oreo’s until completely covered.  Add in daisy cupcake pics from our April box and ladybug and bee sugars!  My boys loved doing these!

For another fun idea, add cookies to the top of our Chocolate Mousse and add sugars!

May Flower Sugar Cookies

Image

April showers bring May flowers!  It’s May 7th, but today has been a gloomy, rainy day.  Hoping all this rain will bring us some beautiful flowers!  I made cookies today, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day for it!   All used with items from our April box!  I started out with our Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe that was included in our April box.  You can click here for it.  These are perfect for Mother’s Day!IMG_4631

Once the cookies have cooled, it’s time to decorate!!! 

You’ll need:

-umbrella and flower cutters from your April box

-ladybug and bumblebee edible sugars from your April box

-sugar pearls from your April box

buttercream icing tube from your April box

fondant from your April box

The buttercream tube should fit a regular piping tip inside the lid for easier decorating!  Roll fondant out with roller to desired thickness.  If the fondant is a little hard, just remove from wrapper and pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds.  Knead fondant and roll out!  Once fondant is rolled, cut out shape.  Using a bit of buttercream for glue, add shape to top of cookie.  Use pearls and edible sugars to decorate.  Use your buttercream as your “glue” for sugars as needed.  It was a fun activity for the kids too!  We hope you have a Happy Mother’s Day!
