Spring Cupcake Bouquet

Sweet springtime flowers to celebrate new life! This was a cupcake bouquet for my cousin’s baby shower celebration, inspired by her love for life, nature, and colour! I baked the cupcakes in paper flower petal wrappers, and decorated them with fondant flowers made using Wilton’s Gum Paste Flower Cutter Set. I wanted to have the flower cupcakes ‘growing’ out of a base of green grass. The weight of the cupcakes would be too great for the cake alone to support, so I filled a plastic cup with leftover fondant, and set it inside the cake base before I covered it with green fondant and added layers of green grass around the base. I cut BBQ skewers at different lengths for the flower stems, speared them through the cupcakes, and then stuck them into the fondant inside the green base cake to create the bouquet.
