I wanted to make both my kids birthday cakes. My step-daughter and my oldest daughter are only a week apart in birthdays so we did a family party together as we were heading to Disney World a week later. The friend parties would be when we got back.
I watched DC cupcakes on NetFlix and saw a beautiful bouquet cake they made out of cupcakes. I decided to do two of these, one for each of them. It really wasn’t too hard.First I went to the craft store and found a large foam ball and cut it in half. Then I found that they sold halves already…will know that for next time! I bought flower pots and made some brown fondant and covered the foam ball.
I like to make white and chocolate cake to give guests an option and doing this in cupcakes was awesome. So easy and I had plenty.
Then I made butter cream frosting and colored it in blue, pink and purple. My step-daughter loves blue and purple and my daughter loves pink and purple. Easy for me and they could tell which was their bouquet cake.
I then tried to hand cut numbers for their age and put them on flower stems. OK I know…I need to buy cutters. But it does not look horrible.
Anyway, it really only took me just over an hour to decorate both cakes. I was really pleased with them and having the pot made it so easy for my step-daughter to take her cake home. I love this bouquet idea! Here are the finished cakes!
