These cute cupcakes are a fun treat to make with kids. Simply bake and frost cupcakes, and then decorate them with marshmallow "petals" and a gumdrop center. —Karen Jerrell, New Albany, Indiana

"Recipe of the Day? Really Taste of Home?? REALLY??? This might have been better listed as an easy and quick decorating tip, and spared the author embarrassing ratings. Cute idea for maybe a child's first attempt at decorating a cupcake, but I must agree that this is not a recipe."
