I’ll be the first to admit that I am late to the cactus and succulent party. They have been trending for a while now and I just didn’t see the appeal at first. I’ll give you two reasons why.
The first, is I grew up in Las Vegas where it is hot. And by hot, I mean boiling for most of the year. It was never my favorite weather. Cactus plants always remind me of trying to successfully climb out of a hot car in shorts and not have my thighs stick to the seat.
The second reason is my youngest fell into a cactus a few years ago and it was pretty traumatizing. You can read all about it here. I did learn how to effectually remove the needles from skin so I guess that was a plus!
So, now you can see why I was pretty reluctant to think that any form of cactus or succulents were cute or adorable. However over these last few months I can finally see that they are part of nature and can appreciate their beauty.
That’s why I was so excited to created these super adorable potted Cactus Cupcakes and share them over on the Oriental Trading Blog.
These truly are the cutest little cupcakes are even more cute when you place them in a tiny ceramic pot. I believe it’s all in the details. You might even have all the ingredients in your pantry to make these today. They are super easy to create and I can’t wait to see your version of them!
