Ah, cupcakes. The little hand held desserts of perfection. There isn’t much better in life than a cupcake and a glass of milk sitting in front of you, ready to be eaten in just a few short moments.
And since it’s spring and there are flowers in bloom everywhere you turn, we couldn’t help be inspired by the nature around us and bring it into the kitchen for some amazing dessert designs.
So in honor of our "Month of Spring", we found some sweet recipes on the web that show us some beautifully creative ways to turn an ordinary cupcake into a work of “flour” art. Basically, we make this face when we see them…
