Cupcake Bouquet Tutorial
Just a quick step by step showing how to
make a 7 flower cupcake bouquet.
Step 1 - Choose your container - top
want to be 6" or more for 7 cake
bouquet. Draw around onto thin cake
card and cut circle slightly smaller so
that it will fit inside container.
Step 2 - Staple 7 Clear disposable cups
together - these are the 7oz ones and
I find that the cupcakes sit really well
inside the tops of them.
Step 3 - Hot glue the bottoms of the
cups on the outside edge and stick to
the board. Now check that this will
fit inside your container. If you have
cut the board smaller it will fit fine.
Step 4 - Cut tissue paper large
enough to cover sides of cups.
I cut two sheets and also one sheet of
acetate as I think this makes it look
like a real bouqet from the florist. So
acetate on bottom then two sheets of
tissue and twist them around so they
Step 5 - Place the cups and board in
the centre of the tissue and acetate
[acetate on the bottom] and turn
over - using a rubber band to secure
around the board.
Step 6 - Turn over and fluff the tissue
into nice folds around the cups. Now
push into your container
Step 7 - Add your cupcakes. You can
either pipe the rose swirls on and leave to
set before placing into cups or you can
put the cakes into the cups and then pipe
the swirls - this way you don't squish the
buttercream at all when you are handling
them. Add some silk greenery if you wish.
And the finished cupcake
bouquet. Add a nice big bow to
