Flowerpot Cupcakes

After seeing the recipe for Flowerpot Cupcakes in a cookbook, I decided to make some for my mom and my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.

The flowerpot has a cookie base and is filled with devil's food cake.  The cupcake is frosted with chocolate frosting and sprinkled with chocolate wafer cookie crumbs (dirt).

The flower is a sugar cookie, baked on a green toothpick (stem).  It is frosted with tinted icing, and the center of the flower is a candy sprinkle.

The leaf is a flattened green gumdrop.

The grass is coconut, tinted green.

I purchased a plastic banana split dish from Party City to hold the arrangement.

They were fun (but time-consuming) to make.  :)
