How to present a cupcake bouquet in a watering can

(SsssshH! This is a secret.)



Buy a vase,

(or in my case, a pint-size dotty watering can).

Take an oasis. Half it.
Choose some flowers
and foliage,
Charm a few canes from the florist.
“Thank-you.”


Get out the strawberry cupcakesI baked earlier.
Now, meringue buttercream is a faff

– this step takes about an hour –

but once you’ve piped roses and tasted it, you’ll see it’s worth, the faff.
Poke a hole in the bottom of the cupcakes with the canes.
Make a mess whilst arranging them all – and
Ta DA!


Look what I MADE for my MUM!
– a cupcake bouquet!
