Building your cupcake bouquet, stage one
Make sure your styrofoam ball fits snugly into your flowerpot. Loosely wrap the ball with green tissue paper and use a little sticky tape to secure.
Building your cupcake bouquet, stage two
Push the ball into the flowerpot, making sure that most of the ball is still visible over the top of the pot.
Building your cupcake bouquet, stage three
Pierce a hole in the bottom of each cupcake with a wooden skewer, then set aside. Push your first skewer into the top of the sytrofoam ball, leaving about 4cm of the pointy end sticking out.
Building your cupcake bouquet, stage four
Place a cupcake on top. Continue inserting skewers and topping with cupcakes, keeping them as close together as possible, until the whole ball is covered. Tie a ribbon around the pot, if you like. Serve within 1-2 hrs.
Where to buy all the kit for your cupcake bouquet
