3 red and 1 yellow gumdrop candies, such as Dots

White sanding sugar

1 frosted cupcake (about 2 tablespoons frosting works best)

1 green jelly spaghetti or other jelly candy


  1. Cut the red gumdrops in half diagonally and press the cut sides into the sanding sugar. Arrange in a petal pattern slightly off center on the cupcake, with the narrower end toward the center. Put the yellow gumdrop wide-end up in the center. Cut the green jelly candy into thin vines and press between 2 of the petals.
