DIY Cupcake Bouquet

Posted May 10, 2013 | 5 Comments

Brides: are you serving cupcakes at your wedding? Bored of the same old display? Want to cross “centerpieces” AND “cake” off your to-do list at the same time? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve heard of the cupcake in a jar – heck, we’ve even seen cupcakes on candlesticks – but a DIY cupcake bouquet is a fresh + fun idea. Instead of displaying cupcakes on the same old tray or tower, display them in a pot instead! These rose-frosting-topped cupcake bouquets are perfect for spring and summer weddings, bridal showers, and parties, and they double as your centerpiece, too. Plus, with Mother’s Day around the corner, you have no excuse but to whip up a batch of cupcakes this weekend and give ‘em to your mom. (And, it’s EASY! Even I could make ‘em, which is saying a lot. I’m no baker.) Besides, do you know anyone who would turn down a bouquet of cupcakes? Me either. So, grab your favorite cupcake mix, delicious frosting, some decorative cupcake wrappers, and a few other easy-to-find supplies and prepare to be inspired! Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page for full step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy!

DIY Cupcake Bouquet

A cupcake bouquet is a vessel – typically a gardening pot to fit into the ‘bouquet’ theme – filled with cupcakes. The cupcakes look like blooms because their tops have been piped with frosting to look like roses; the cupcakes are attached to toothpicks set in Styrofoam so they appear to be ‘blooming’ right out of their pot. And, if I do say so myself, they look almost too pretty to eat. (Let’s be honest, though, it’s still cake. Delicious. Icing-topped. Cake. I can’t pass that up.)

This cupcake bouquet by Edible Moments is one of my favorites. I love the white rose-topped cupcakes and the chocolate cake. I also love how she added the fake leaves that look so real. And, her frosting piping skills are amazing.

I came across this blog called 52 Kitchen Adventures and it’s filled with so many great ideas! I especially love the animated gif she created on the tutorial which shows how to pipe roses. She makes it look do-able, even for a total novice baker, like myself.

Feeling adventurous? Add macarons on a stick, a little tulle, and cupcakes (with a decorative container) and you get this pretty little masterpiece. By Raspberri Cupcakes.

Happy Planning Baking (+ Bowl Licking + Icing Stealing + Cake Eating)! P.S. My diet is coming back from vacation soon and she’s gonna be ticked.

    I got kind of excited when I read that this post was about cupcakes because, frankly, cup cakes are awesome. I was worried when I saw them though because they look almost too perfect and I was afraid they were fake. Thanks for the tips!

    Hi Dan,

    Those cupcake bouquets do look pretty delicious! I am so impressed by the frosting ‘roses’ on the tops of the cupcakes, too. I’m definitely going to have to give that one a try myself. Thanks so much for stopping by and I’m glad you liked the post.

    Jamie,

    Absolutely! I couldn’t agree more. Plus, they’re edible so they’ll be enjoyed (rather than tossed out at the end of the night). Thanks for your comment!
