Mother’s Day in America is coming up in May…and anyway Mother’s Day should be everyday! I thought I’d have a go at making a  cupcake bouquet. Here is how I made it.

equipment needed:

Cupcakes

Frosting filled in a piping bag with either Wilton tip 1m or 2D

Styrofoam ball

Pot

Toothpicks

Tissue paper

Fondant/gumpaste

Leaf cutter

Butterfly cutter

1) Cover styrofoam ball with tissue paper. Preferably in green….I didn’t have green so I used pink.

2) Place cupcake on the wrapped ball and insert a toothpick into it to hold it in place.

3) To make the rose swirl, hold the piping bag at a 90 degree angle  and start piping from center of cupcake out.

4) Once all the cupcakes have been frosted roll out some green fondant/gumpaste and cut out some leaves. Let dry and place them in roses.

5) Roll out white fondant and cut out butterflies. I used petal dust to add colour to the butterflies. Then let it dry on foil.

5) Place the butterflies in any gaps between cupcakes. I would have liked to add green tissue paper to fill in the gaps but I did not have any. I then wrapped the pot in pink tissue paper.

Happy Mother’s Day! 🙂
