Spring is here, folks. The flowers are beginning to nudge their way up through the soil, and the days grow longer and brighter.

It really is a wonderful, happy time of year.

One thing that I think of when spring comes around are all of the yummy treats. Growing up in a family that celebrated Easter with baskets full of beautiful chocolates and other sweet treats, I’ll always think of candies, cakes, and cookies at the beginning of spring.

Easter aside, who doesn’t love a beautifully tasty treat? There’s nothing like sitting on your back porch on a sunny morning, wrapped in a light sweater, and snacking on a special treat while the birds chitter chatter away.

This spring cupcake takes cupcake decorating to a whole new level. If you place these guys on your springtime party spread, they’ll double as decoration and dessert. The moment I saw these terra-cotta pot cupcakes, I knew I had to make them right away!
