An afternoon of baking cupcakes (and eating them, of course) sounds absolutely delightful, and this favorite pastime gets even better with the Sweet Sprout Cupcake Toppers. Created by New York-based baker Sachiko Windbiel, these delicious dessert additions are sculpted from edible fondant.

Whether you're celebrating the autumn harvest season or the return of spring, these Sweet Sprout Cupcake Toppers are a great alternative to regular frosting. For an added green garden feel, the desserts can also be ordered to arrive in tiny flower pots, but as Windbiel indicates on her site, "please do not water them!!!" Each topper is handcrafted and ultra-realistic, and will surely make a splash at your next gathering.

I absolutely adore these sugary shrubs, and would love to try some Sweet Sprout Cupcake Toppers for a taste of glory.
