I tend to make a lot of practical crafts for this blog, but this week, I wanted to do something fun for spring. Are these flower cupcake toppers a reasonable craft for a large party? Debatable. Will they rock said party if you decide make them? Absolutely! Sometimes you just gotta let loose and follow your crafty dreams.
Cut a very thin layer of sponge, then dip in water. Aline your flower stem beside the skewer (or slip onto the skewer if able), cover the base with the damp sponge, then tape in place. You’ll want to cover the tape with wire, or maybe even scrap fabric, so it does not show. I started with floral wire, but found it a bit too difficult to mold. A thin, flexible jewelry wire should do the trick.
Place toppers in your cupcakes and serve! If you are having several guest over, these would also look great on a singular cake. For reference, the ranunculus lasted ~4 hours, the lilac ~5 hours, and the daffodils ~7.5 hours, all without refrigeration.
