Well, here we are…September! Crazy how fast time goes! Fall is definitely in the air. We have had under 50 degrees for the last couple days, hopefully it’s not here to stay.

While looking around for some inspiration for new Fall Cupcakes, I spotted these Sunflower Cupcakes on Martha. So I changed it up a bit and simplified it for you. I love decorating with sunflowers too, the colors scream Fall, but they still hold onto a little bit a Summer for me.

If you are close to my hometown, LaPorte, don’t miss the Sunflower Fair on September 17th!

Just like the Pencil Cupcakes and Football Cupcakes that I have done recently, using mini cupcakes to form a larger design is much easier than you think.

Sunflower Cupcakes
Celebrate Fall with kid-friendly Sunflower Cupcakes from
  1. Color frosting: Use a small amount of Buttercup Yellow, a little more Buttercup for the brighter yellow and for the orange/rust frosting, I mixed orange and copper
  2. Frost cupcakes: 7 light yellow, 9 bright yellow and 13 orange
  3. Place mini chocolate chips or brown candy in a small bowl and place on large sturdy board
  4. Add cupcakes around the chips. Begin by placing a ring of cupcakes around the dish, then another ring. Then randomly add a cupcake in the middle of two to form the petal effect.
  5. Add a fresh stem if you like


I love the Sunflower Cupcakes all together, but the real fun starts for your kiddos, when they can use the chocolate chips or candy to decorate their own cupcakes.
