What you need: (For one flower)
- Bamboo skewer
- Green straw
- regular sized muffin cup (I used a thick yellow one)
- mini-muffin/cupcake decorated with icing (I made vanilla with bright pink butter cream icing)
For the display
- Flower pot
- half of a styrofoam ball or florist's foam
- green tissue paper/easter grass
Step 1: Fold your large muffin cup in half and cut to create a six petal shape.
I used a template for the first few and then gave up and did most just by eyeing it. This is a step you can do a few days before the party.
Step 2: Create your stems by taking the bamboo skewer and placing it inside the green straw. Make sure you have a bit of the bamboo skewer sticking out the top. This makes it easier to insert into the muffin.
Step 4: Glue your mini-muffin to the larger muffin cup and then stick the bamboo skewer into the bottom.
Step 5: Arrange in your flower pot. I made about 15 flowers and split them into two flower pots. Make sure people know they are edible - we had a lot left over because they didn't know they could eat them. :)
