Cupcapers - Lolly Poppies

Well spring decided to arrive a little early this year, although it seems like it's realised its mistake and buggered off sharpish today!

Mrs B came to tea a couple of Fridays ago and it was also her birthday that week so I decided to make some cupcakes that were a bit less hum drum for the occasion when remembered that I'd seen some great cupcakes at a craft and vintage fair I'd attended with Mrs D and decided to recreate them at home.

They're chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate buttercream icing slopped on the top, some chocolate chip cookies crumbled over that to look like soil and a lolly pop jammed in with a couple of green icing leaves placed delicately either side of the stick to make the lolly pops look like spring flowers. 
In retrospect I'd have used Oreo cookies for the soil but as I didn't have any in the house choc chip cookies had to suffice.  


A penny for your thoughts
