Pretty flowers don’t just have to grow in your garden

by Beth

You can craft flowers out of paper and pipe cleaners or make sweet flower cookies, cupcakes, and candy to eat.

I’ve rounded up a collection of truly beautiful sweets that look like daisies, roses, and daffodils to name a few!

Your kids will have a blast getting their hands dirty while planting a lollipop and marshmallow flower in a chocolate cupcake cup or potting pineapple sunflowers in strawberry planters.

Have fun creating your edible garden filled with cookie flower pops, cupcake bouquets, and daffodil candy cups.
