Happy 151st Birthday Kansas! On Friday my children celebrated Kansas Day at school. Ava’s teacher asked me if I would make cupcakes for the class. I immediately knew what I wanted to make, Kansas is the Sunflower State after all. Even better, it was an excuse for me to go to Sweet! to buy some supplies. I love that store, and the cupcake liner wall alone makes it worth the drive. Not to mention the sprinkles. You know how I much I love a sprinkle.
These cupcakes look complicated, but they were really easy to do. I got everything ready before I started. I mixed the colors and filled the piping bags. I used straight kelly green for the leaves, but mixed a few shades of yellow for one bag, and a mixture of yellows and oranges for the other. Thin Mints were perfect for the centers. Thin, obviously, but also the dimpling looks like the middle of a sunflower. You could use an Oreo, but I would use only one half.
The kids loved them, and I loved making them. Nothing is more cheerful than a sunflower. Happy Birthday Kansas, here is to a 151 more.
