Pretty Presentation: Easter Rose Cupcake Flower Box

Today I have another fun way to dress up some cupcakes and create an easy and fun way to display them.

Check out these cute little picket fence baskets that I found at my local Michael's. I thought they would be perfect along with some paper crafting supplies, to hold these rose iced cupcakes that I made. To make sure that the cupcakes are anchored and don't tip over, I'll show you how I added a few stakes to the basket to slide the cupcakes onto.

To create the stakes, here's what you'll need:
  1. a wooden basket
  2. serrated knife (preferably one that you've banished to your craft room)
  3. a pencil
  4. wooden cake dowels
  1. Measure and mark the wooden dowel to the top of, or just below the top of the box.
  2. Carefully cut the dowel where marked.
  3. Use a pencil sharpener to sharpen one end of each dowel.

Quick Tip: You don't have to cut the dowel all the way through. Use the knife to cut part way through and then just snap it at the break point.

4. Apply a small bead of glue to the flat end of each stake using a glue gun.
4. Glue stakes evenly spaced apart to the inside bottom of box.

At this point, you can decorate the outside of your box or paint it if you'd like. Then just fill the box with easter grass, or any filler of your choice, and slide a cupcakes onto each stake.

Other Supplies:
picket fence box (Michael's), wooden cake dowels (Wilton), ink colors of your choice, twine, easter grass, cupcake liners (Michael's), glue gun, pencil sharpener, knife
