Party Food Idea Lollipop Flower Cupcakes
Today we have a fun party food idea to share on The Inspiration Edit. These cute Lollipop Flower cupcakes are fun and easy to make and I’m sure these will go down a real treat with the kids. And trust me…adults will love them just as much!
Lollipop Flowers Cupcakes Ingredients
- 6 Prepared Cupcakes, unfrosted
- 1 Can White Frosting
- 6 Dum Dum Lollipops
- ½ cup White Candy Melts
- 6 Large Marshmallows
- Sanding Sugars—assorted colours
- Green Candy Shreds
- Green Food Colouring
How to Make This Party Food Idea
Colour the frosting with the green colouring and frost each cupcake with a smooth layer of frosting. Sprinkle some green shreds on top of each one so it looks like grass.
Hold a marshmallow lengthwise and use scissors to cut it into 5 thin slices. You will only need 4 of the slices for each flower so you can dispose of one slice. Repeat this with all the marshmallows. The slices will look like flower petals. Trim off a tiny end of each marshmallow petal so they all have a flat edge.
Sprinkle a small pile of one color of the sugars onto a plate, and dip 4 of the marshmallow petals into the sugar so one side of the petal is coated in the sugar.
Repeat this step with the other color sugars and the other marshmallow petals.
Melt the candy melts in a small bowl per package directions. Then let the chocolate set for 5-10 minutes until it’s not so runny but becomes a bit tacky.
Unwrap a sucker and choose the 4 petals of whichever colour you would like to start with.
Take a petal, dip the flat edge that you cut earlier into the chocolate and press it to the lollipop.
Do this with all 4 petals going around the lollipop in a circular shape so it looks like a flower.
You will need to hold each petal in place for about 30 seconds or so until the chocolate sets enough for the petal to stay in place.
The runnier your chocolate is, you will have to hold the petals longer.
Repeat step 5 with the other lollipops and petals. Let the flowers lay until the chocolate is completely hardened.
Stick one of the flowers down into each cupcake so it looks like it has grown up from the ground.
These make fun treats for any summer party! They are such a fun and simple party food idea!
