Mum Cupcake Bouquet – Video for Mother’s Day
Several years ago I created this Mum Cupcake Bouquet. I first posted the recipe in 2014, and then in 2015 I created a video where I’m talking and demonstrating how to make them.
Now that 1 minute videos are all the rage, I decided to recreate it. I’m still trying to perfect my 1 minute video skills. The video is slightly blurry at all times, a disability without an external monitor. That can be especially tough when video recording solo. I think you’ll get the idea though.
Below you can watch my 1 minute version of how to make a Mum Cupcake Bouquet as well as the extended version, if desired. I’ve also included the recipe below.
This is a great project to have the kids get involved in. Even a 2 year old could master these. They’re pretty hard to mess up!
I hope you’ll try making a Mum Cupcake Bouquet this Mother’s Day. Please post your photos on my Facebook Page once you’ve created yours. I can’t wait to see them!

Check out the full recipe below for my Mum Cupcake Bouquet..…………………………………….
Mum Cupcake Bouquet
- Cut approximately 40 miniature marshmallows in 1/2 on the diagonal, and set aside in a bowl.
- Have sanding sugar or sprinkles in a container
- Spread icing on the top of a cupcake. Do this one at a time, otherwise the icing will form a crust, making it difficult for marshmallows to adhere to cupcake.
- Dip each cut 1/2 of marshmallow into the sanding sugar/sprinkles and starting at the outer edge, add the dipped marshmallows to the cupcake, sanding sugar facing inward.
- After you finish lining the marshmallows on the outer edge in a full circle, add the next row in front of the previous circle. Continue adding the marshmallows - be sure to put them close together - until you've added all of them. You should have an empty spot in the middle.
- Add a candy ball, Good & Plenty candy or Jelly Bean in the center.
- You've now completed one cupcake.
- Continue with the remaining cupcakes. When finished, arrange on a platter and using green licorice, lay next to base of cupcakes to resemble stems.
