Make Mother’s Day even more special with a few kid-made treats. Even though your little chef can’t use the stove or oven yet, they can help you to measure and mix in the kitchen. A cupcake bouquet is a Mother’s Day gift that mom will enjoy, and the kids will enjoy making. Start with your favorite cake recipe or go with a boxed mix. Next comes decorating these tasty treats.

Sunny Sun Flowers

Make a giant sunflower out of mini “suns.” Bake yellow cake cupcakes and then have the kids help you to frost them. Use a bold yellow icing or mix food coloring in with the plain white version. The kids can get creative, adding yellow sprinkles or yellow crystalized sugar to the top. Arrange the frosted cupcakes in a flower shape.

Rainbow Rose Petals

Make a “rose bouquet” of iced cupcakes in rainbow colors. Drip a drop or two of food coloring into one cup of white frosting. Repeat to create a rainbow of hues. Frost the cupcakes in the different colors. Arrange the rainbow into one giant flower shape, or create a “bouquet” arrangement of them. You can also add food coloring to the cake batter to create an even brighter rainbow.

Pretty Pastels

Make mom’s cupcakes into a pastel Impressionist dream. Frost the cakes in an artsy style that looks like Monet’s Water Lilies or a similar type of masterpiece. Use light blues, pinks, greens, purples and yellows to create lily pads and flowers on the cupcakes.
