Candy Flower and Rainbow Cupcakes

It was my cute neighbor Lydia’s birthday this week and her mom threw her a birthday party at my pool so of course I volunteered to make the birthday cupcakes and mini birthday cake.  When I asked what Lydia wanted, she told her mom flowers and rainbows, can do!  I hit up the bulk food department at Winco for all of this candy which includes regular size M&M’s, jelly beans, candy corn, gum drops, and patriotic Sixlets then I grabbed some Airheads Xtremes from the regular candy department, some mini Oreos from the cookie aisle and lastly a bag of mini marshmallows.  I think you can figure out the rest from the picture.  I used my favorite White Almond Sour Cream Cake recipe and my favorite Buttercream Icing recipe but I did add 2 tablespoons of meringue powder which I bought at Michaels to the frosting to see if it would help with the melting problem that happens in the summertime, it might have but I’m not positive.  Here is a picture of the mini cake, as you can see I was having problems with soft frosting.
