I love sunflowers. In Kansas, where the sunflower is the state flower, there would literally be fields of nothing but sunflowers. They were spectacular to see.
So, before pumpkins over take the house, I wanted to make something that is end-of-summerish-but-not-yet-pure-autumn.
I went with sunflower cupcakes.
Or at least my version.
Obviously, my decorating skills leave a lot to be desired.
On some of the cupcakes I used chocolate sprinkles for the middle.
On some of the cupcakes I used mini chocolate chips.
I always use gel coloring to get the brightest colors.
There is absolutely nothing special about the cupcakes. I just wanted to try to make some sunflowers. We used them as the birthday cake for Hubby as well.
What they lack in beauty, they made up for in taste.
Then after getting all the sunflowers made, Hubby told me for his birthday "cake" he wanted Key Lime Pie.
So what's a girl to do?
Make Key Lime Pie...of course.
