Flowerpot cupcake with rock jellybeans and fresh mint sprig from my garden
Since the pot is taller than the cupcake, it's sitting on 2 sandwich cookies. I'm concerned the mint will wilt if I let them sit assembled overnight, so I'll bring the mint sprigs in water to work with me, then assemble them when I get there. If I find enough ribbon, I might tie a bow around each pot, but we'll see. I will at least be making a special tag with a bow for the birthday girl. :)
I'm not satisfied with how the cupcake papers don't exactly fit inside these pots. Since these are already frosted with the "soil" & "rocks" in place, I won't be modifying these, but I think I will go ahead & frost over the liner edge to the pot edge for this weekend, but still baking them in the papers for easier eating. We'll see how that works. I'm also going to see if I can find more of the smaller pots that fit the cupcakes exactly if they're not too expensive for 24-36 of them. One of the recipes I saw had all clay pots so you could bake the cupcakes directly in the pots, but you'd need a spoon to eat those, which isn't the easiest party food. ;)
Now to clean up the kitchen mess...
UPDATE: Here are the finished dozen pots in my cube at work!

The birthday girl loves hers, so success! :)
