These bouquets transition from spring soirees to summertime picnics. Use fondant handles and flowers to turn cupcakes baked in Dimensions Multi-Cavity Mini Flower Basket Pan into posy-filled baskets.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

In advance: Use tip 102 and royal icing to make 45-50 wild roses for each basket. Add tip 2 dot centers. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry on medium flower formers.

Form a curved shape 3 x 3 1/4 in. wide and let dry on board dusted with cornstarch.
