Giving gifts is one of my absolute favorite all time things to do….especially when they are much deserved. A close friend, teacher, and of course any special person who enhances my life would be surprised and happy to get one of these fun gifts.
This time of the year is so fun because everything is blooming and bright. I saw my girl, Ree Drummond, aka “The Pioneer Woman” make these on her show and knew I had to make these this year for all the special ladies for Mother’s day.
Flower in a clay pot ‘dessert’ or dirt cakes
What you’ll need: smallest clay pots, straws, fresh flowers, cake mix, pudding, chocolate cookies, wax paper, & ribbon
Line pots with wax paper & place cake mix in cupcake tins.
Place a cupcake or two in pot and put a straw down the middle. Cut straw down.
Place pudding carefully on top and around the straw. Then sprinkle ground up chocolate cookies over the pudding.
Add ribbon around the pot and insert a cut flower into the straw.
What I love about this gift is that when you first arrive, the women think it’s so cute and so nice, and then you get to tell them they can eat it!!! So fun!! I love a surprise! Who wouldn’t want to get a dirt cake? So far the response has been great!
