Are You Ready For This Trend… ? Succulent Cupcakes

Succulent Plants are everywhere nowadays so why not create a cupcake to represent it. At first glance they look a little overwhelming but after watching her little hidden tricks it takes the edge off. I know this is just a trend and like everything else it will fade away but I absolutely love the look of these Succulent Cupcakes and pretty happy that for now I can make them for anyone who wants them.
