Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made these with my mom and they were pretty easy over all. I made these with my mom and they were pretty easy over all. I made them for my family's Easter party this year. We were pretty confused about making the flower on the top with the marshmallows. For anyone who is having trouble, to make the petals all you have to do is cut off a layer of the large marshmallow at a time (long ways, not like in pieces over the top which was what I originally tried). It's best to make the cupcakes large so you can fit all of the marshmallows on top. I also put a jelly-bean in the middle just to very it up a little. All and all it was a great dessert that I would defiantly do again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe last June for my "Welcome Baby" party. I made this recipe last June for my "Welcome Baby" party. I didn't add the jello, instead I just made white cupcakes, frosted them w/ white butter cream, and made the marshmallow flowers. It was a huge hit at the party. A lot of people asked me where I bought them, and when I told them I made them, they were in amazement that I made them! (Not because they don't have faith in my decorating abilities, but that they were so professional looking.) It was a little time consuming, but it was worth it. :)

I made these for my daughter's 6th birthday (at school & at home)using full size cupcakes and they turned out great!! I used a cut mini marshmallow for the center one time and then just piped yellow frosting in the center the next time (which I liked better). I also made mini cupcakes using mini marshmallows for her dance recital. They turned out really cute. We made them using many different pastel colors. Little time consuming, but well worth it when you see the big smiles on the kids faces!!

My three year old picked out these cupcakes for her birthday party and they were a big hit. I recommend that regular frosting be used in place of whipped topping, because I found that the whipped topping melted and dripped over the sides of the cupcakes. I had to remove it and replace it with white icing. I would make them again for a shower or girly birthday party!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is an easy and festive cupcake recipe. This is an easy and festive cupcake recipe. As a teacher, I have made it several times to as treats for my class. I have made it with and without the Jello being added and both are delicious. When cutting the marshmallows, it is helpful to have hot water nearby to make cutting easier.

I use green icing on the cupcake or green sprinkles if I am in a hurry. I have done several different color combinations but my favorite is red for Christmas. SUPER EASY.
