Alexander's "Blue Flower Cupcake"



I always make cupcakes for the kids class parties. I try to make them each a little different. But this year, Alexander would not have it that way. He insisted on the flower cupcakes I made his siblings last winter. Poor kid has been waiting almost 9 months to have these cupcakes "with the lollipops and the worms!" The only difference is that I had to use the Blue's Clues cupcake papers. So these are Blue's Flower Cupcakes. And they are a little different.





Ingredients:

1 box yellow cake mix
add 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
1 package of vanilla pudding mix
1 container white frosting (chocolate is OK too)
green food coloring (if using white frosting)
green sprinkles (or chocolate if using chocolate frosting)
DumDum lollipops (or any kind you please)
gummy worms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. Follow directions on the back of the cake mix and add the yogurt and pudding mix. Mix well.

2. Pour into lined muffin tins and bake per directions on package plus 3 -5 extra minutes.

Meanwhile:

Mix the desired amount of food coloring and frosting to acheive desired color, set asside.
3. Remove from oven and let cool.
4. Once cooled spread desired amount of frosting on each lollipop and add sprinkles. Place a lollipop in the center of each cupcake and a gummy worm someplace near the flower.

Makes about 18 cupcakes

You are sooo creative! I wish I would have read this before Connor's b-day party! I made cupcakes with gummy worms and sprinkles, but the lolly pops would have been the "icing on the cake" ;).
