Divide marshmallows into 24 groups of
14 marshmallows each (336 total).
Starting with one bunch of
marshmallows, use kitchen shears or
scissors to cut each in half diagonally.
Dip cut sides of 14 of the marshmallow
halves in a light-colored sparkling sugar.
Dip remaining 14 halves in the darker
companion color of sparkling sugar.
Spread top of one cupcake with frosting.
Press flat side of each marshmallow half
into frosting, alternating light and dark
colors in concentric circles on cupcake.
Repeat with remaining cupcakes.
Arrange cupcakes on a platter to
resemble a bunch of cut flowers. Place
green-apple-flavored candy sticks or
candy string, tied with a ribbon, to
resemble flower stems.
If desired, add green "leaves" to each
cupcake: Snip 2 marshmallows in half
diagonally. Dip cut sides in green
sparkling sugar. Randomly attach to
cupcakes, tucking under outer petals.
