Special instructions for the recipe put something heavy in your vase or flower pot this arrangement tends to be top heavy and will topple over easily! The more random you pipe the better it looks.

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Pillsbury strawberry cake mix, vanilla buttercream frosting tinted with wilton paste food coloring violet, sky blue & assure blue and piping bag striped as well with tip D2. 5" styrofoam ball, short ceramic flower pot, green tissue paper, tooth picks, gum paste leaves. I built the bouquet from the bottom up with 7 cupcakes on the bottom tier, 6 above that and one on the very top. I frosted the cupcakes after sticking them to the styrofoam ball with toothpicks.
