Say it with Cupcakes! Savoureux Cupcakery's Newest Addition!



 After the almost overwhelming success of the Mother's Day Bouquets, I've decided to keep the bouquets on the Savoureux menu. <3

If you'd like to try these on your own, here is a quick tutorial:

1 Pot of your choice
Floral Foam
Glass beads or rocks to weigh down the pots
Kabob skewers dyed green with food coloring
Printed paper of your choice
12 mini cupcakes
Icing dyed to your preference
Bag ties to secure the cupcakes to the skewers

Step 1: Get the pot and hot glue the floral foam to the bottom and then pour the beads or rocks around the foam covering all but the top of the foam.

Step 2. Take the skewers and after cutting out leaves from the paper, slide the leaves onto the skewers about halfway up.

Step 3:  Take the bag tie and wrap it tightly around the tip of the skewer about 1" from the tip

Step 4:  Take the tip of a knife and poke a tiny hole in the bottom of the cupcake so the skewer slides on easily and then slide the cupcake onto the skewer.

Step 5:  Stick the skewer into the floral foam in the center and after repeating the steps 2-4, arrange the cupcakes starting from the center and working your way out until you have the arrangement to your liking.

*Side Note* To make the rosettes, take a star tip and starting from the center of the cupcake, pipe a steady stream of icing turning the cupcake, not the tip clockwise until you're at the edge.  Of course, I'm a lefty so you righties turn counter-clock wise.

Happy Mother's Day! :D

Cupcake Bouquets for Mother's Day!
For Mother's Day, this year, I wanted to do something a little unconventional and different.  I decided to try my luck with cupcake bouquets and was beyond delighted with the outcome.

These were a lot of fun to make.  I had creative liberty so I went with a variety of different sides to Wolverine.  His claws are made out of metallic fork prongs that I broke off and stuck into fondant fists.

Behold, the Sparkley Unicorn Cupcake
My friend, Josh, had a birthday and I always make my praise team cupcakes for their birthday (that's how I got started selling cupcakes)  he told me he didn't care and to surprise him.  ...Let's just say, I'm confident that next year, he'll be more specific. :D
