Mother’s Day Gift Idea: “We Love MOM” Cupcakes

You know how much I love cute cakes. I’m not a fancy cake maker. I’ve never taken a class, nor do I know how to use a pastry bag — at least not well. But, I love to make festive cakes. Here’s a super easy one, perfect for Mother’s Day

1. Bake your favorite cupcakes, cool, and then frost. Our family really likes this recipe.

2. Print out letters to spell out “We ♥ MOM.”

3. Cut out letters and tape to toothpicks. Make sure that you tape the letters right side up, otherwise you might spell “Me ♥ WOW.” (Ask me how I know.)

4. Place cake toppers in your cupcakes and arrange cakes to display your message.

This is such an easy cake-topper craft and one that your children could easily participate in. Since cupcakes are such an easy-serve dessert, consider adapting it for other holidays, birthdays, and special occasions.

  3. What a great idea. They love scrumptious! I found you through lifetime moms. Im your newest subscriber!

  4. So, this is an idea for MOM, but my daughter loves lemon desserts, so I will be “stealing” it for HER. :o) She t urns 16 in July!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
