In a few short weeks, it will be Mother's Day, and if your mom is anything like mine, it's next to impossible to find her the right gift. Flowers are usually a hole-in-one, but my mom always claims they're a waste of money since they often wilt and wither away after just a few days. Luckily, baking genius Elise Strachan of My Cupcake Addiction has the absolute perfect alternative to actual flowers: flower pot cupcakes.
If you haven't heard of Elise and her incredibly popular YouTube channel by now, I'm both sorry and happy for you. Sorry because it's full of ingenious recipes for beautifully delicious sweets that have been missing from your life but happy that you've managed to escape the ensuing addiction her channel is sure to bring on. She's got the lowdown on creating enormous candy bars, rainbow brownies, and gorgeous layer cakes, as well as basic tutorials like how to make the perfect buttercream frosting.
Elise has been enlightening amateur bakers since 2011, growing her channel from its humble beginnings to the far-reaching giant it is today, with over two-and-a-half million subscribers and 340 million views. She has plenty of off-screen experience that she brings to her viewers, as she's run her own cupcake business for over a decade. The Australian baker is a trained pastry chef, so she's not short on classical education either. In addition to baking, Elise is also passionate about party planning and DIY projects and enjoys making videos on those subjects as well.
