Happy Mothers’ Day! The one day that we get to thank our moms for the countless things that they do for us all year long. I find that homemade gifts always are the biggest hit among moms, so if you are looking for something a little different to tell your mom that you love her,  these marshmallow flower cupcakes are perfect! Although they look complicated, these impressive creations are actually quite simple to make. Here are the step-by-step directions to making these adorable flower marshmallow cupcakes.



  • Mini Marshmalows
  • Colored sugar (I used hot pink, teal, and orange)
  • Cake mix (I don’t make cakes from scratch but if you know how to, I’m impressed, and go for it)
  • Scissors
  • Plastic baggies
  • Icing (use your favorite kind, lighter colored icings look the best)




Watch the step-by-step video:


1) Follow the directions on the cake mix to bake your cupcakes.

2) Cut marshmallows diagonally, each cupcake uses about 20 marshmallows (turn the marshmallow until it looks like a diamond, then cut straight up).



3) Add colored sugar to plastic bag with marshmallows and shake. The sugar will automatically stick to the inside of each marshmallow because it is sticky. Shake bag until colored sugar covers all of the marshmallows.



4) Ice your cupcakes and begin adding your marshmallows. Starting around the outside of the cupcake.



You’re all done! Repeat with each different color sugar that you wish to use and you will have a beautiful marshmallow flower bouquet for your mom.

    I made these today! I couldn’t find very many color choices in colored sugars, so I made some at home with white sugar & food coloring and it worked great! I can’t wait to give these to my Mom tomorrow. A cupcake bouquet for Mothers Day 🙂 Thanks for the lesson
