These cupcakes look so real that you may look twice before biting into them. They’re technically made out to be house plant cupcakes, but look so much like the dessert in the southwest. These are the perfect dessert for a barbecue or pool party—especially in the dessert!

These cowboy cupcakes are the way to your very own cowboy’s heart. The mix of salty Pringle and sweet chocolate makes for a surprisingly delicious combo. The red licorice adds a fun kick, as well.
