Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and that means that a lot of special ladies will be needing some love — more than you already give them, I mean!

Nothing says love and appreciation like something handmade, and for the women who have everything, an edible treat is always welcome.

And since Mother’s Day is a special occasion, it’s no time to worry about calories. And therefore, this adorable and simple recipe is the perfect one.

These cupcakes look really fancy, but thanks to some clever tricks, they’re actually a breeze to make!

That means you can make them for all the moms, stepmoms, grandmas, aunts, and friends on your list without overly stressing yourself out.

In fact, you’ll be surprised to find just how easy it is to transform a plain cupcake into a delightful, blooming spring flower, just like it was easy to create those adorable rose cake pops.

Check out the recipe below, as well as the video to see how it’s done, and feel free to switch things up with different colors of sprinkles and frosting!
