Loved making these cupcakes for Mothers Day. Not only because I love flowers but they look so feminine, dainty, colourful and vibrant making them a beautiful gift for giving to a special person to cheer up their day.
These are my classic moist cupcakes with vanilla buttercream (who can resist these classic flavours). After spending a few hours making these bright flowers, I used them to adorn my cupcakes. They would’ve been great just packaged in their own little clear boxes but I decided to make a pot plant bouquet out of them.
Six cupcakes in every pot with matching but paler tissue paper to soften the look. When they were wrapped with clear cellophane, they were PERFECT for gift giving. My mum and mother in law were the lucky recipients of these beauties. (yes I did leave some extras for myself to sample. I too am a mum after all.
