I copied an idea from gempants, and came up with this Mother-in-Law requested a cupcake Bouquet for her 80th Birthday. Chocolate & Vanila iced in buttercream.


I made this bouquet with small, medium and large. Next time I will just use small and large. It was funny when my mother-in=law would not let anyone eat the cupcakes from the bouquet itself!

ABeautiful work! How were you able to get the cupcakes to stand up inside the pot? It's interesting because they look like they are all different heights.

I used cupcake picks,

 

  Cupcake Stands - Cupcake Bouquet Holders

 

 

It seems that they are only available in the UK. So I made my own with heavy gauge floral wire from Micheal's, They were not strong enough for the large cupcakes, so I made some from wire coat hangers. Using this method, I was able to adjust the height and angle of each cupcake.

Thank you for the great responses, it has been flattering and I have enjoyed the ego boost. LOL I am happy to answer any questions on how this was done. I actually made it twice, once to practice and once for the party.  My icing turned out better the first time but the colours were better the second time.

Love it.  Best one I have even seen.  Next time you make one can you please take a picture of the bouquet stand before you put the cupcakes on?  Thanks.
