Tomorrow is the last day of Frannie's second grade school year. This is what we made to say thank you for her teacher. The idea for the cupcake flowerpot came from I Heart Cuppycakes. I decided to paint my terracotta pot a nice green with a black band and, of course, some giant polka dots. This way the teacher will know it is from us. I also used my own recipe for deep, dark chocolate cupcakes and real buttercream frosting. The icing is actually a darker pink than in the photo, but that's what happens when you're in a hurry to take a picture. Frannie made a recipe booklet to go along with it. Like the title says, it contains a lot of Frannie's favorite recipes. We made the booklet on the computer and Frannie did all the decorating herself. Her teacher is going to love it! Now, if I can only figure out how I'm going to get the cupcake flowerpot to school...

And are you going to share your recipe for the deep dark chocolate cake? That's HEAVEN in my book! The cupcake flowerpot came out great. I'm sure Frannie's teacher loved it!

Ack -- that is SOOOO cute! I follow that blog, but I don't remember that adorable flower pot -- I'm going to have to remember that. How did you attach the cupcakes? Are they pretty stable? And most of all -- I'm with Jen -- Can we puh-leezzzz have your cupcake recipe???

I am so totally and completely trying this! I have found that the 1A Wilton tip makes cupcake frosting look just like a rose, so this is perfect!
