This was my first attempt at a flower boquet using cupcakes. I think I was a little too ambitious and there were definitely some technical difficulties. I would do things alot different next time. There are 32 cupcakes in this pot. Would go smaller and use mini cupcakes next time. Used toothpicks and skewers to hold the cupcakes together and some decided not to stay on the cake. Looked better from farther away.
