I’m generally not the crafty type, but I magically gain a little more patience for creating when I get an excuse to bake something. Yesterday was a good friend, Terresa’s, birthday (twenty one!) and I wanted make a gift instead of racking my brain trying to figure out something normal to buy. It’s no secret that I love cupcakes and since I work like a maniac and couldn’t attend her birthday dinner, I thought I could at least do something sweet (literally). Even though making a cupcake bouquet required a bunch of driving around trying to find the right materials, I love the way it turned out. It gave me a reason to try a few new baking techniques that I’d be wanting to experiment with, too. I used these instructions for how to make it.
