Cupcake Bouquet - A Step-By-Step Guide
By Tonya R. Taylor

One of the cutest cupcake ideas around is the amazing life like cupcake bouquets. These yummy cupcake bouquets are so deceiving they look just like flowers. Cupcake bouquets can be used for any gift giving occasion or a centerpiece for a wedding to display unique wedding cupcake ideas.

Use this step-by-step guide to create your own cupcake bouquet idea surprise:


1. One Styrofoam Ball with a 5 inch diameter
2. 55 baked mini cupcakes in green cupcake liners
3. 55 toothpicks
4. One large decorative bowl
5. One large star tip
6. Icing in the color of your favorite flower

Step 1: Place Styrofoam ball into the bowl. The bowl should only cover 1/3 of the Styrofoam ball.

Step 2: Place a toothpick in the Styrofoam ball near the bottom above the rim of the bowl.

Step 3: Place a mini cupcake on the toothpick in the middle. Half of the mini cupcake should be above the rim of the decorative bowl and the other half below the rim of the decorative bowl.

Step 4: Using another toothpick, place the next cupcake to the left of the cupcake, from step 3, so they are touching.

Step 5: Continue adding cupcakes to the left around the entire rim of the decorative bowl.

Step 6: Start the next row by placing a toothpick in the Styrofoam above the first row then add a mini cupcake so they are touching. Continue adding mini cupcakes row by row to the left, until the entire Styrofoam ball is covered.

Step 7: Make sure all the cupcakes are touching, there should not any space between the rows. You may adjust the cupcakes if necessary.

Step 8: Using the large star tip start in the middle and swirl your way out to the edge of the cupcake creating a rose pattern.

Tip: When using butter or butter cream icing beware of displaying your cupcake bouquet in a warm climate. The warm temperature will cause the icing to slide off the cupcakes. As a substitute, solid vegetable shortening can be used however; you will sacrifice the rich buttery flavor.

Have fun!
