Beyond Mud Pies: Mud Cupcakes

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

The classic mud pie needs no improving, but there may be days when your kids want to get more creative with their dirty work. That's when old kitchen supplies come in handy, for these decorative cupcakes or for a more utilitarian variation: Mud Bricks.


  • Cupcake liners
  • Cupcake pan
  • Mud
  • Nature objects (we used berries, flowers, and pebbles)


Simply place liners in a cupcake pan and fill them with mud batter, then decorate the cakes with natural objects, such as berries, flowers, and pebbles.
