When I was planning my Easter tablescape I knew I wanted to use some mini terra cotta I picked up at Dollar Tree. I knew I wanted to use them, but wasn’t sure with what. Then it hit me! CUPCAKES!
This was a super easy project. Here is what you will need to make them yourself:
-Mini Terra Cotta Pots
–Foil Cupcake Liners
–Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mix( I find this to be the best out of all of the boxed mixes. Whenever I use it people think I made the cake from scratch.)
-Fresh Flowers – I went with carnations because they are a hardy flower and would be okay without water.
Step 1: Now you can bake the cupcakes directly into the terra cotta pots, but you need to bake the pots separately before hand for 30 mins and then let them cool for 30 mins and then go back in the oven again. Ugh. Who has time for that? I simply placed my foil cupcake liners directly into the pots and filled them three fourths of the way up. I left them in the pots and baked them per the boxed mix directions.
*Make sure you use foil. They are a bit stiffer and help keep the liner once you pour the mixture in. I did some with paper and they came out horribly. *
Step 3: Cut your flower to size.
Tip: You may need to trim some of the width of the stem in order to slide it into the straw easily.
Step 4: Then frost away! I love using a frosting knife for a nicer finish, but use what you have at home.
So pretty and just as yummy!
Enjoy! Super easy to do and Hudson loved helping me out during the whole process.
