Flowerpot Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Sugar Paste Flowers

Flowerpot Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Sugar Paste Flowers

Since we've been sharing some wedding ideas in the last couple of weeks, I thought I'd post these flower pot cupcakes, since they'd be perfect for any wedding or bridal shower you may be planning! My go-to chocolate chip cupcakes are baked directly in small clay pots, then topped with a simple buttercream tinted green to give the illusion  of grass, and crowned with handmade sugar paste edible flowers!

Lately I've been hooked on baking cakes. Layered cakes to be precise. I think it's the influence of all those amazing cake-decorating videos and accounts on Instagram ! 💁 Hence, my latest creation - this delicious, super pretty and oh-so easy to bake and decorate lemon and berries cake with Mascarpone frosting.  We served this cake at our mothers' day tea party a couple weeks ago, but it would be perfect to serve at a baby or bridal shower, or any other spring or summer party!

As you probably saw in my last post , that the Mojito is my favorite cocktail of all time!

One fruit version that is a a real hit with everyone, and that looks SO SO pretty, is the raspberry Mojito. Which I'm very happy to be sharing with you today. Least of all, because I get to make Mojitos on a weekday, and get to taste-test it for you! 😋
