Recently, I went to an Easter Egg hunt at Courtney’s house (of Charming Whimsy) where she once again produced a fabulous spread with lots of fun things for the kids to do and lots of special treats. The cupcakes she made for the party were so unique and creative—little carrot patches complete with dirt and dipped marshmallow carrots. So NEAT!
She made the marshmallow carrots as marshmallow pops
and made an entire carrot patch out of them. How cute are those carrots in those little flower pots!!?
After a little begging, Courtney kindly wrote up a tutorial on these quick and easy cupcakes sure to impress your friends, neighbors and mothers of the children in your kid’s class. You’ll need:
1 bag of large or small marshmallows depending on how many carrots you want on each cupcake
1 bag of orange candy melts
1 bag of green edible grass (I found mine at Target, but I saw that it is also available at Michael’s and World Market)
Orange sugar or sprinkles (optional)
1 package of Oreos or chocolate cookie crumbs
Cupcakes with chocolate frosting
