First You’ll need: cupcakes, frosting, a disposable piping bag or a reusable piping bag, Wilton 1M tip (or a open star tip), green tissue paper, clear tape, flower pot, styrofoam ball, & toothpicks.
Place cupcakes in fridge while you prepare the styrofoam so the frosting becomes firm.
Place styrofoam ball into flower pot. Place two toothpicks in each area where you want a cupcake. Note: around the sides, insert toothpicks at 45° angle, otherwise cupcakes will fall off after a while
Stick the tooth pics in the foam ball
Slide a cupcake onto each pair of toothpicks, adjusting toothpicks as needed to place cupcakes close together. Cover as much of the styrofoam as you can.
Put the cupcakes on the toothpicks
Cut u the green paper into small pieces
Cut up green pieces of paper
Fold strips into curved zigzags
Fold it to look like an accordion
Pinch the bottom of the zigzag
Pinch the bottom of the paper
Put a piece of clear tape at the pinched part of the tissue paper and stick it to the uncovered styrofoam in between the cupcakes. Make more tissue paper leaves until you cover all the uncovered areas
Put the green paper in the uncovered parts of the foam ball
And you’re done! Bring your cupcake bouquet to your next birthday party, baby shower, Mother’s Day, bridal shower…the possibilities are endless!
