I saw this amazing Cupcake Flower tree in the FoodNetwork Magazine a few months back and had to make it for our Mother's Day brunch.Instead of cupcakes I made breakfast muffins: Banana nut with cream cheese frosting, Bran with cream cheese frosting and blueberry with lemon cream cheese frosting. I used a different tip to get a rose like look on the purple ones.
I left the muffins out for a few hours to set the frosting to get ready for assembling.
I painted a styrofoam ball and use a stick that my husband cut off the tree outside and placed it in a flower pot I got at Target for about a dollar. About 3 toothpicks per muffin to attach to the ball. This definitely needed a little weight around the bottom so I used some marbles to make sure it wouldn't topple over.
Happy Mother's Day!
