Need a stunning flower cupcake idea?

This Flower Cupcake is a simple idea taken to a whole new place. Imagine 100 of these stunning little sculptures as Wedding Cupcakes! What a breathtaking display!

Of course they’re perfect for any occasion when you really want the ‘wow’ factor. Display them in a smaller group in a large galvanized tub for a garden themed birthday party or place one at each place setting for an unforgettable end to an elegant dinner party.

The Sunflower looks impressive but it’s really quick and easy to make. All you need are a few humble ingredients and a little inspiration (that’s where I can help!).

Presentation really makes all the difference. These would still be cute in jumbo cupcake papers but planted in individual flower pots they become truly memorable.

Obviously you can use any type of cake you like to make these cupcakes, but they're really great with a rich chocolate cake. When you dig into the flower pot it resembles real dirt.

This is a really fun cake idea with so many possibilities.

Cooks Note: Most cake recipes will make 10-12 of these cakes. They are roughly equivalent in size to a jumbo muffin. Also, you can either bake the cupcakes directly in the flower pots or bake them in a jumbo muffin liner and then put them in the pots when you’re assembling the final cake.
