With the spring holidays coming up I thought it was the perfect time to share these pretty Trix Spring Flower Cupcakes with you. They are easy to make and perfect for the pastry decorating challenged like myself.
I would say these Trix Flower Cupcakes are proof that sometimes, results are greater than the some of the parts.
Trix balls, candy and pop sticks transform typical cupcakes into a lovely flower garden, perfect for your brunch or other spring event.
The scratch recipes for the cupcakes and frosting are included, but if you are a boxed mix baker, feel free to go that route. They will still be just as cute.
