Make a perfect gift for any occasion! This Blueberry Cupcake Bouquet is a beautiful edible substitute to a flower bouquet – cost-efficient and truly a delicious treat!
Tips and Tricks for Making This Blueberry Cupcake Bouquet Recipe:
- Before frosting, make sure the cupcakes are completely cooled to avoid melting of the frosting.
- Make the frostings ahead in one big batch and just chill it. Take them out from the chiller and frost your Blueberry cupcakes before assembling it into a bouquet.
- You can place mini candy flowers on top of the frosting for a prettier edible bouquet arrangement.
- If you don’t have a piping tip to use when frosting, simply place the whipped cream into a piping bag and make a cut in the corner of the bag and frost. Works perfectly every time!
- Coat the fresh blueberries with flour before mixing it into the batter. The flour will prevent the blueberries from sinking into the bottom.
