How To Make a Cupcake Bouquet For Mother’s Day

Flowers and sweets are probably the two most common and most popular gifts mothers receive on Mother’s Day, so why not combine both by making a cupcake bouquet? Don’t worry, it sounds much more difficult than it is. But at the same time, a cupcake bouquet is so impressive, it will guarantee you to stay your mum’s favourite child.

So, what do you need in order to make a cupcake bouquet? Cupcakes, of course! Bake them yourself, please, instead of buying them from the supermarket. Your mother will be proud. If you want your cupcakes to look like actual flowers, check out this tutorial on how to pipe the frosting to make it look like roses.

Besides cupcakes, you’ll need a pretty flower pot, a styrofoam ball which sits on top of it, and some toothpicks. Make sure your cupcakes are cooled down, or even better, refrigerate them for a few hours before making the bouquet – warm cake may be too soft and therefore slide off the toothpicks.

Put the styrofoam ball in the flower pot and place toothpicks all over the ball using two toothpicks per cupcake. Make sure that the toothpicks are angled slightly upright on the sides, so that the cupcakes won’t slide down. If your cupcakes are on the larger side, use three or four toothpicks per cupcake.

Then, place the cupcakes on the toothpick pairs until the styrofoam ball is mostly covered. To fill the small gaps in between cupcakes, you can either use real flowers or twigs, or you can use some green tissue paper as fake leaves. Crunch it up slightly and glue it to the exposed parts of the ball.

That’s it! Tie a nice ribbon around the pot and surprise your mum with this creative and delicious Mother’s Day gift this year.
