The weather is finally starting to warm up.   I’ve been cold all winter and I’m so ready for spring.   When I think of spring I think of flowers and I wanted to make something fun but easy to celebrate the coming of spring.  There are actually a few crocus and daffodils poking up in our yard so flower dessert it is!

The great thing about these cupcakes is they are made from a cake mix and a frosting mix so putting them together is easy.   However, they are super cute and look like a lot more work then they actually are.   These are great for BBQ’s, birthday parties, or just to have on hand for company.   Kids love them because of the lollipop “flowers” sticking out.

They are also easy to customize by switching out cake and frosting flavors.  Use vanilla frosting dyed green for grass or go with the chocolate frosting for dirt.  The cake can be whatever flavor you wish.  I went with a classic yellow cake and vanilla frosting.   I used spearmint leaves cut in half for the flower leaves, green frosting for grass, with darker green sprinkles on top.   Everyone loved them and they only took about 30 minutes to frost and decorate.

    I’d have to say the Gluten Free would be something I’d be most interested in. Thank you for the chance 🙂

    I am most excited about Everyday Gluten-Free. I am learning about Gluten-free diets and would love to learn more about cooking gluten-free too.

  3. 15 minute freezer recipes sounds like a great book to have on hand! The mason jar salad one has appeal as well!

  4. The cookbook I would like to win the most would be the Mason Jar Salads. We do a lot of canning and we also have Mason Jars in every color, shape and size. If I won this giveaway I could learn to create the ultimate foods for a Mason Jar.

  5. I want to win the “Cookie Bouquets” book the most. We usually have a “Cookie Bake Off-Family Style” each Christmas.

    All the cookbooks sound wonderful but the one I want the most is Everyday Gluten-Free cook book Bob’s Red Mills

  7. I would most want to win the mason jar salads cookbook because my sister started doing this and looks like a great source for some variety

  8. I would most like to win Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners. My daughter and I enjoy watching her on tv.
