Last week was so unseasonably warm here in Maine that my garden started waking up! But even before the snow melted away and it started to feel like spring, I was ready for blossoms. I decided to plant some in my kitchen!
These cupcake toppers are shaped like crocuses (or is that "croci"?) in the purple, lavender, and yellow that appear in my garden. I created them in a size that can be punched out with a circle or other shape craft punch (around 2 inches would work well), or you can cut around them as I have to make them really look like flowers.
You'll need card stock to print on, scissors or craft punches, tape, and some lollipop sticks for "stems." I used 8-inch lollipop sticks (available at craft stores) and then cut each one into two pieces varying from 3 to 5 inches. Once you've printed out the PDF file and cut (or punched) out your flowers, use a small piece of tape to attach each flower to a stem. Then "plant" one in each cupcake.
Next time I think I'll paint each stick with green food coloring to make them look more like stems. These would also look pretty "planted" in a garden sheet cake or layer cake.
