Actually today (April 11th) is Donate Life's #blueandgreenday - and supporters are supposed to get creative with blue and green - the colors of Donate Life. AND since you probably expect sweets on the blog, I figured I'd get creative with some cupcakes to celebrate spring coming and new beginnings in support Donate Life month.
I started with some Trader Joe's Fruity O's cereal. It's kinda like the Trader Joe's version of Fruit Loops - but the colors/flavors all come from fruit and veggies. Glue them into a flower shape with some melted yellow candy melt.
Once dry, I added a pretzel stick stem/leaves attached with more melted candy. Add some "grass" icing and then add the flowers as toppers to some cupcakes. Add that's it, so easy.
I also made some Donate Life pretzel snacks. Blue and Green candy melt on top of square pretzels, with black candy melt used to write the name on top. Then just plopped some onto the cupcakes too.
And you get some cute spring cupcakes that make my little punkin' pie smile like this:
