I'm starting at the beginning, so the finished product is at the end of the post....uh ah - no peeking....hehe!
Step 1. Stamp multiple floral and leaf images from the Bloomin' Doodles set. For 10 stamped flowers, stamp 20 leaves. Color and trim each piece (number of florals and leaves dependent on the amount of cupcakes you are displaying). TIP: When coloring in your flowers, consider what color your cupcake frosting is going to be. Make sure the two colors contrast well so that your flowers will really pop with color (e.g. if frosting is white, color your flowers a bit darker, and vice versa).
Step 2. Using plain, white lollipop sticks, adhere each flower top using double sided adhesive tape.
Step 3. Decorate the cake stand with colorful flag strips....using assorted, bright colored paper. Trim a triangular shape approx. 1" on each side. Adhere with adhesive tape in a circular fashion until you've covered the entire width of the stand.
Step 4. Take flower and lollipop sticks that you assembled earlier and push through the center of each cupcake frosting, leaving 3/4 of the vertical stick to resemble the stem.
Step 5. Place two leaves on the frosting at the very bottom of the lollipop stick. Turn the leaves at a slight angle.
Step 6. Place cupcakes on cupcake stand and adjust to desired look! And Voila ~ you have a delicious looking summer time sweet treat that is perfect for a garden party, a tea time party, a princess birthday party, or a bridal shower!
