Mother's Day Cupcake Bouquet
The toothpicks were where each cupcake was located. I suggest planning out where your cupcakes will go and placing two toothpicks per cupcake. In effort to not destroy your cupcakes I also suggest you prepoke the holes for the toothpicks in the bottom of your cupcake wrapper.
For this bouquet I made carrot cake cupcakes iced in cream cheese icing and then a buttercream mum piped on top. In the future I will premake some medium consistency buttercream flowers to fill in the gaps. Another idea would be to fill in the gaps with some mint leaves or other leaf. Lastly, I found it easier to poke wholes in the cupcake wrappers if the cupcakes were refrigerated. Here is a link to Wilton's page for how to make a shaggy mum cupcake. Below is how they turned out.
Good luck in your cupcake bouquet endeavors and I hope yours goes well!
