For this week's cupcake bouquet, I started with chocolate mini cupcakes, hit Michael’s to find a Styrofoam cube (the one’s florists use) and the dollar store for a cute summery planting pot and wooden skewers.
Since the Styrofoam was a cube, I had to trim it down to fit in the pot opening. Next up was strategically inserting the skewers (cut in half) into the block. But before piping the yellow icing (to bring out the flowers on the pot, of course) and sticking each one its waiting skewer, I weaved green tissue paper in between each one to simulate stems.
The result? Well, after Styrofoam shavings everywhere, one heck of a splinter and the reorganization of a few skewers, I’d like to think it’s not too bad for a first timer.
One thing’s for sure, a real bouquet might look better – but this one is definitely more delicious!
