Turning cupcakes into sunflowers is not an easy task, but it can be done with a little practice. These particular cupcakes are made with a vanilla batter that include both a scraped vanilla bean and some vanilla extract to really enhance the flavor. A whole Oreo cookie is placed in the center of each to make up the center of the flower, while piped yellow frosted petals are placed around its perimeter. A small m&m candy decorated to look like a ladybug adds an extra touch of authenticity.
