Fruit Tree Cupcakes

Today is Earth Day, and what better way to celebrate than to plant a tree... a CUPCAKE tree, that is!


How To Plant A Cupcake Tree


You will need


Directions

Roll frosted cupcake in cookie crumb "dirt". Cut a marshmallow in half, width wise, and push pretzel sticks through the bottom.


Dip marshmallow in bowl of water. Shake off excess water and immediately roll into gree sugar sprinkles, coating the entire marshmallow. Place on a paper towel to dry.


"Plant" your tree by simply pushing it into the center of your cupcake.



Add your sequin confetti sprinkles with a dab of water for the fruit. You can even try filling your cupcakes with corresponding fruit fillings like jelly or pie fillings... a milk chocolate cupcake filled with orange marmalade, topped with an "orange tree" or a dark chocolate cupcake filled with cherry pie filling, topped with a "cherry tree"... YUM! The possibilities are endless. Check out my simple homemade fillings from my Miniature Pies post.


Continuing with the earth day theme, here are some chocolate covered Oreos I made to represent "the elements" I used drizzled chocolate and sugar sprinkles to create land, water, wind & fire
