Specialists online cake and decorating suppliers MakeBake have created an easy to follow, step by step guide to creating this beautiful bouquet, sure to put a smile on your mums face this Mother’s day!

How To Guide: Mother's Day Cupcake Bouquet

To create the beautiful bouquet:

You Will Need:

12 cupcakes

Pink icing frosting

Green Cupcake cases

Piping Bag

Small Flower Pot

6” Styrofoam ball

Toothpicks

Pink Ribbon

How To Guide: Mother's Day Cupcake Bouquet

Step 1:

Bake 12 cupcakes to decorate your bouquet, any flavour of your choice (we would suggest creating your mums favourite flavour if you’re planning to give the bouquet as a gift).

To add to the overall effect of the cupcake bouquet, MakeBake also suggests using green cupcake cases.

Step 2:

Using a pink fondant and piping bag, gently squeeze the bag and pipe frosting around in a spiral onto each cupcake to create a flower effect.

A top tip from MakeBake is to ensure your fondant is room temperature and your cupcakes are cooled before starting to pipe your icing.

Step 3:

Place cupcakes in fridge while you prepare the Styrofoam so the icing becomes firm.

Simply place a Styrofoam ball within a small flower pot, we would recommend gluing the ball to ensure it is extremely secure.We used a 6″ diameter which should neatly fit 12 cupcakes.

Once the glue is dry, place two toothpicks in each area where you want a cupcake to sit around the bouquet.

Step 4:

Once your cupcake icing is firm, it is time to add the cupcakes to the bouquet.

Place each cupcake onto each pair of toothpicks, adjusting toothpicks as needed to secure each cupcake.

Try to cover as much of the styrofoam ball with cupcakes as you can to give the best effect, and add additional toothpicks to secure each cupcake where necessary.

Step 5:

Once you are happy with the layout of your cupcakes, add a sprinkle of edible glitter and a beautiful ribbon to finish the bouquet.

We hope you enjoy creating this beautiful cupcake bouquet as much as we did.

Aswell as a great mother’s day gift, the bouquet also works well for birthdays, bridal and baby showers, and is a great way to showcase your cupcakes at a party or event.
