Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Chocolate cupcakes, buttercream, Wilton tip 2D, piping bags, tissue paper, Styrofoam ball, toothpicks, vase/pot, ribbon What are you most proud of? The end result. What advice would you give someone starting this project? BALANCE! I almost had mine tip over twice because my other hand was preoccupied. Also, make sure the styrofoam ball fits well in your vase or pot. A narrow vase will cause the bouquet to be unstable.
