garden party cupcake tier

Garden party cupcake tier So I guess it is obvious that I have Spring fever. I absolutely love this idea, not necessarily the cupcake design though. Here’s a much cooler sunflower cupcake, but what I wanted to show you was the display. This idea is fabulous (courtesy domestic diva Martha Stewart) for our bugs and butterflies birthday theme. You’ll need:

  • Three white cake plates, each slightly smaller than the other
  • Small clear glass (tubular is best)
  • Green crepe paper
  • Small watering can
  • Craft paper for the flower petals
  • Suckers

And here’s how you do it:

  1. First cut leaf shapes out of the green crepe paper; you’re going to need 50 to 60 so that they overlap.
  2. Next stack your cake plates and using double stick tape apply your leaves so that they overlap slightly and hang off the edge.
  3. Taking the craft paper, a thick card stock would be best, cut out a flower petal shape with five petals. Using a bone folder, crease each petal, and with a hole punch, place a hole in the center of the petal and insert your sucker. (You may need to use a small dab of glue or tape to hold the petal in place on the sucker stick. Just make sure it is non-toxic.) Finally place your sucker flowers in the small watering can.
  4. Arrange your flower cupcakes and top with your fun watering can. DONE!

Happy crafting!
