Foam ball that sits inside flower pot
1 box Food Club® cupcake mix
2 cups Food Club® butter, room temperature
6 cups Food Club® powdered sugar
2 tbs. Food Club® milk
1 tbs. vanilla
Purple, pink, blue, and green food coloring
Bake 24 cupcakes according to box instructions.
Cream butter in a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add the powdered sugar and mix well. Add milk and mix until buttercream is light and fluffy. Add vanilla and mix for a final time.
Split buttercream into 4 separate bowls and color each bowl with pink, purple, blue or green food coloring. Load the separate frosting colors into baggies or piping bags with piping tips of your choice.
To assemble the flower pot, place the foam ball so that it rests on the flower pot. Use hot glue around the base if additional stability is needed.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, attach them to the foam ball with toothpicks or skewers. Frost each cupcake in any pattern and color you prefer and fill in any empty space by frosting greenery.
