A Cupcake Topiary
is a unique and creative way of displaying cupcakes. It’s dessert and décor all in one!
The great thing about cupcake topiaries is that they are versatile and could be made for any occasion. It seems like this time of year everyone around me is having a baby, so I thought why not make a bright pink cupcake topiary for a girl baby shower?
These cupcake topiaries are really easy to make. All you have to do is attach mini cupcakes to floral foam using toothpicks.
I’ve done it the hard way just aimlessly attaching cupcakes, but what makes it look more elegant and put together is when you have a plan of attack. I like to place pins into the foam ball to map out where I’m going to place each cupcake. Then, just remove one pin at a time and replace it with a frosted cupcake.
Yikes! This foam ball looks like an image from a scary movie but believe me it will save you time in the long run.
I made these mini cupcakes with a lemon cake mix because when I think about a baby shower with a lot of ladies … I think lemon! You can make your cupcakes with any design you want but I happened to have jumbo sprinkles so I made my cupcakes into daisies.
When your guests leave the shower they can take one of the mini cupcakes as a favor.
The pink topiary is so beautiful but blue, yellow, or lavender would be gorgeous too.Christy joined the Tablespoon team to share her recipes and inspire family food fun. Watch her Tablespoon member profile for great new recipes!
