Hydrangea Cupcakes Instructions
- Start with the tip of the piping bag flush on the surface of the cupcake.
- Squeeze the piping bag, pull up for a beat, and stop squeezing. That is your first cluster of hydrangea petals!
- Repeat, covering the cupcake in one layer of petals.
- Turn your wrist at different angles per cluster of petals to create a natural look. Go in for a 2nd sweep to fill in any gaps.
- If you mess up, just go in and cover your mistake with another “cluster of petals”.
- Side by side, the cupcake “hydrangeas” create a full look for your bouquet.
How To Make a Hydrangea Bouquet
- You can use any sturdy vase, bucket, or even a terracotta pot. I used a galvanised pot.
- You’ll need to weigh down the pot with marbles, rocks, or even a sack of flour.
- Next, get a Styrofoam ball that fits in the pot. My pot was 6” in diameter, so I bought a 6” Styrofoam ball. Then I cut the Styrofoam ball in half with a cerated knife.
- To secure the foam ball to the pot, I placed beads of crafting glue around the inside lip of the pot and then placed the foam ball flush against the inside of the pot. You can also use a hot glue gun.
- Next, I wanted to disguise the foam ball and make a nice green base that would peak through any gaps between cupcakes. I bought a moss mat to use as a topper. I secured the moss mat topper with floral pins. And we have our bouquet base!
