After seeing my previous cupcake bouquet one of my friends asked me to create one for her Mums birthday. I had been really looking forward to making another one of these. The last time was the first time I had created one, so this time I was able to make it look so much better…

The bouquet was made up of 8 Large cupcakes and 11 small cupcakes, each secured onto a 10 inch polystyrene egg, which was fixed into a flower pot, with cocktail sticks. For the large cupcakes I used 3 sticks and the small ones I used 2. I found the trick with creating these cupcakes is to make the buttercream slightly thicker, and add a few tablespoons of water, which helps it crust over. This allows you to push the cupcakes together alot easier without the buttercream swirl getting messy.

I finished the bouquet off with some icing/fondant flowers and leaves, which fill any gaps perfectly. I then wrapped tissue paper and cellophane around the pot to give it the bouquet feel.
