Hi everyone, it’s the last week of the spring desserts series so I really wanted to leave it with a bang! I think these flowerpot cupcakes MIGHT be the cutest dessert I’ve ever seen… I don’t know it’s a close call! I’ve seen different versions of these floating around the internets and just had to make one myself!

They are very easy, fun and would be a great activity to decorate with kids! Wouldn’t they just get a kick out of “planting” the flowers after sprinkling dirt on their cupcakes?! I know I would have loved that!

So, to make these I just used a boxed devil’s food cake because it’s the darkest color there is to mimic dirt and well… because it’s freaking delicious. Topped with my chocolate malt buttercream frosting (I TOLD you I had plans for that recipe!) and just sprinkled with Oreos that were turned into crumbs in a food processor.

I picked up the paper flowers off a shop I found on etsy. You can literally find everything on there and it’s always so cute!

I got the smallest terracotta pots I could find at the craft store. Make sure they are safe to use for baking and are not glazed. Wash them thoroughly before hand and use after they have dried completely.

I accidentally filled mine a little too much so I had to scrap off some of the excess cake before frosting. No worries, they still came out super cute and the frosting covers up any mistakes!

These would be so cute to surprise your kid’s class with and then after they finish eating them, they can plant a little plant themselves!
