This is one of those days where pictures are going to need to tell the story for you. My kitchen is a mess (common theme, I know) and I have to head off to our church’s Wednesday night kids program in… well, soon! But still, I wanted to get this up because I don’t see very much time in my schedule to do a full on tutorial until after Valentine’s Day.
And, well, hopefully one of you will be inspired to whip up one of these Valentine Cupcake Bouquets yourself to celebrate the
I must say, if you’re going to partake in the romantic festivities, what better way to express yourself then offering up a labor of love such as this?
This particular bouquet I’m giving to a kiddo in our church to auction off at his upcoming Spaghetti feed and auction to raise money for their 8th grade D.C. trip.
The cupcake liners came from Wal-Mart, though you can buy them anywhere Wilton Cake Decorating products are sold.
Would you believe me if I told you all of the decorations came from the Dollar Tree? Well, they did. Bonus!
The green stuff is floral arrangement foam. I pieced it together with a skewer to fit my bucket.
Then I covered it with tissue paper.
I placed the fully decorated cupcakes into the green foam by poking a toothpick through the foam and then through the cupcake bottom. Then I just poked the hearts into the foam as well and arranged my ribbon to fill in the gaps between the cupcakes.
Fairly simple, and pretty cute, huh?
