Cupcake Flower Bouquets


These cupcake bouquets were ordered for a special party.  There are three types of flowers: hydrangeas, roses, and chrysanthemums.  The hydrangea and rose cupcakes are standard French sponge cake.  The chrysanthemum cupcakes are carrot cake.  These bouquets are set on 9 inch diameter foam balls.


My husband and I were up almost all night putting the bouquets together.  The video was shot at night and is definitely not a great production, but we're just happy we were able to finish the bouquets.  They were going to be picked up in the morning.  My husband made special carriers for the bouquets so that they don't tip over during transport.  The carrot cupcakes were especially heavy since they are a lot denser than the French sponge cake.

    1. Hi Maricar. For these bouquets, I use Pastry Pride. It's a super light and airy icing. It's very much like whipped cream icing, but holds up much longer. I buy the icing from Smart & Final. Butter cream frosting tends to be a bit too heavy and in warmer weather will just slide off the cupcakes, especially on the ones in the bottom of the bouquet.

  2. Do you use your sponge cake receipt for your cupcake too ? Thank you for making these wonderful videos.

    1. Yes, I do use this sponge cake recipe for my cupcakes as well. The only difference would be in the baking time. I can't recall exactly how many minutes for the cupcakes. My oven is not very reliable so I always check the cupcakes regularly to make sure they do not get dry. I always want my cakes to be nice and moist. :)

  4. I just saw the youtube video of this and love your flower bouquets. I was wondering what you were using to hold your cupcakes while you were decorating them. It seems to make it easier to control.
    Thx. Karen

  8. Hi Anh, I'm trying to make these cupcakes as a last minute thing but I can't get Pastry Pride anywhere around here. Is there an alternative? Maybe some kind of whipped topping? Please help!

    1. Do you think Wilton's Buttercream Icing Mix will work well? The problem I am having with the Wilton Creamy Decorator Icing is that it seems too.... sticky in a way. Every time I pipe a flower, it sticks and won't pull apart from the tip. It seems liquidy and not fluffy enough.

  11. Hi Anh, thank you for sharing such a beautiful tutorial. I was wondering 2 things, if you could post a video of what your husband made to transport those gorgeous cupcake bouquets in (that's all I thought about while you were putting them together), and how much would you charge someone for making the bouquets?

  12. Hello -

    I did have some of the icing slide right off the bottom cupcakes - just used a buttercream frosting. You think it's too heavy or would it work ok if cupakes were chilled ahead of time?

  13. Hi Anh, must say those cupcake bouquets look GORGEOUS!
    I was wondering if you could please share the recipe you used for the carrot cupcake? I plan on making a carrot cake bouquet for Mothers Day but I'm kind of afraid that my cupcakes would be super dense and fall off the bouquet! :(
    Please help!

  14. Many people believe that a live plant is a more appropriate gift for someone who is ill or older, since it implies that they will enjoy a longer life. 24hrscityflorist.com
