These sunflower cupcakes are especially easy if you use premade icing in an aerosol can like I did. Great for summer or anytime.

How to Make It: Using yellow icing and leaf tip, make a layer of petals around the edge of the cupcake, and then a second layer overlapping that. Sprinkle chocolate chips in center.
