Yummy Valentine's Day Flowers!

Dear Craft Diary,

Valentine's Day is around the corner! And I don't want a bouquet of flowers that will die in a few days....hmmmm...wish there was a bouquet of flowers that will not end up in the trash...

I've got it! A Cupcake Bouquet!

Very easy to make....grab a pot size of your choice...a styrofoam ball that fits tightly into the pot...hot glue some green shredding paper (or whatever you feel can hide the ball from view)...position your cupcake and pierce toothpicks through the cupcake all the way in to the styrofoam ball until it is sturdy (careful, too many toothpicks too close will weaken the cupcake)...then pipe your favorite icing with a 2D decorators tip (pipe from center first and then keep circling until you fill the top surface)...you can add icing leaves with your favorite leaf tip..and if you want to get real fancy spray food coloring on your cupcakes for a realistic effect...decorate your pot how you like...AND....Wait for the "Wow!" factor. :)
Your cupcake bouquet will be gobbled up and not end up in the trash...
Happy Valentine's Day!
