Easter Flower Pot Cupcakes

flowerpot

In an effort to be more of a Pinterest mom (without going cra-cra and overboard) I wanted to come up with a cute Spring / Easter Cupcake.

Because who doesn’t like a cupcake?! Only a crazy person, that’s who.

I found these Flower Pot Cupcakes on a website and seriously, I cannot find it anymore but they were so cute and I knew I had to make them. Funnily enough I have had 3 boxes of Silicone Flower Pot Cupcake makers in my pantry for over a year but we never used them. Found them at Ross for $2.99 each and Makenna just had to have them. You can get them on Amazon for about $16 for 6 of them.
