Spring Dessert: Flowerpot Pie and Honey Bees

Any chance I get to celebrate with food is GREAT with me and this weekend is Earth Day! Yesterday I shared fun Bug Cupcake Cones and today you will find more Bug Cupcakes that I shared over on Lifetime Moms.

Not only do I love creating fun desserts, I love them even more if they are quick and easy…and of course, look like I spent a long time on them. To celebrate Earth Day…or Spring…or Mother’s Day…or just because…how about this delicious Flowerpot Pie with some yummy Honey Bees buzzing around made with simple ingredients including COOL WHIP whipped topping!

I think the flowers are almost as fun to make as the dessert! Although the Honey Bees were pretty fun too!

Let’s get started…

Gum Drop Flower Supplies:

  • Gum Drops
  • Mini Cookie Cutters {flowers and leaves}
  • Pretzels
  • Small amount of sugar for rolling the gum drops out
  • Small amount of frosting to attach centers and leaves


  1. On a cutting board or hard surface, sprinkle a small amount of sugar
  2. Using your hand, press gum drop out then roll out with a rolling pin, flipping from side to side several times
  3. Cut flower out with cookie cutter
  4. Repeat for leaves and centers of flowers
  5. Attach to the pretzel with a small amount of frosting
  6. Place in fridge or freezer for about 15 minutes to set the frosting

It’s almost too cute to eat…almost

Add a dollop of COOL WHIP, a sprinkle of cookie crumbs and be sure to watch out for the rocks in the dirt!
