70th Birthday

I made these cupcakes for my Grandma's 70th Birthday! The theme was colorful flowers! It was perfect and so fun to make all of the flowers for the toppers.

I used the cupcake boxes to display all of the cupcakes so for the top tier I made a white cake and then did a basket weave design. I used crushed oreos for the dirt in the basket and then attached some of the cupcakes with the same colorful flowers with skewers.

Here are some views of it all put together!

There were about 9 different flavors to choose from so everyone should have been able to find something they likes :)

The flowers were all made out of fondant with royal icing centers and sprinkles.
