easy flower cupcakes
  • Cupcakes:
  • 6 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 2 small eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • Frosting:
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar, or as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Decoration:
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup assorted colored sprinkles
  • 8 candy-coated milk chocolate pieces (such as M&M's®)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 8 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Combine 6 1/2 tablespoons butter, sugar, and vanilla sugar in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
  3. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl and add to the batter. Beat for another 5 minutes. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 14 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool, about 20 minutes. Cupcakes sink slightly after baking, which is fine as it creates a flat surface for the flowers.
  5. Combine 1/4 cup butter and cream cheese in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add confectioner's sugar, 1/4 cup at a time. Beat in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract after half the confectioners' sugar is incorporated. Set aside.
  6. Pour colored sugar into different small bowls. Cut each large marshmallow into 5 slices. Dip marshmallow pieces with the cut side down into one of the colors so the sugar will stick to the marshmallow. Repeat with the other marshmallows and different colors.
  7. Spread a layer of frosting over each cupcake. Arrange 5 marshmallow slices on each cupcake in the shape of flower petals. Place a candy-colored chocolate piece in the middle.
