flower pot cupcakes
Sidney and I made these super-cute dirt desserts for Mother's Day gifts. Martha Stewart made them this week and it got me remembering the "dirt pies" I used to make for Buddy when he was a little guy - a mixture of chocolate pudding, crushed oreos and gummy worms.
These are slightly different; the clay pots are lined with parchment and we baked the cakes right in them. They are frosted with chocolate icing and Sidney sprinkled the oreo crumbs on the top and decorated with candy rocks and the little plants are sprigs of mint. You should line the inside of the pots with parchment so your cake doesn't take on the taste of the terracotta or clay pot.
We delivered them around town this morning. We hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day eating dirt. That sounds awful! But they weren't awful, they were yummy and delicious. Happy Mother's Day!
