Cupcake flower basket

This cup cake flower basket was so easy that I will make it again and get every cupcake looking a bit more like a perfect rose- but I think this is good enough to post.

All you need is a container, big enough to take a round flower oasis. You can use wet or dry types of oasis. I had to buy dry as my floral supplier was out of that size in 'wet', -sold out, she says, because of high demand by cake makers!

  • Weigh down your basket with stones.You do need this for stability, especially as you are going to ice it after they are on the sphere.
  • Simply cover the oasis in cling film and them place it securely in the container, sellotaping to the container.
  • Cover with tissue paper or pretty napkin and Sellotape that securely.
  • Fix the cupcakes to the sphere using cocktail sticks. I managed to fix 21 to this oasis.
  • Pipe frosting using a closed or open nozzle as shown above.

If you start in the centre I think you get a better look. Apply even pressure- easier said than done and watching some of the wonderful cake makers on YouTube makes one feel quite inferior.

Take a photograph, stand back, and pat yourself on the back!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
