Last year Twin saw a post on Cupcakes Take the Cake about a cupcake tree in Food Network magazine and of course had to create one herself! She used our mom's 50th birthday as an excuse to make the detailed dessert...but in my opinion every occasion is a cupcake tree occasion. AM I RIGHT??
The two cupcake trees Twin made pictured above had nearly TWO HUNDRED cupcakes on them, which is, like, a lot of cupcakes. Totally #winning.
How To Make a Cupcake Topiary (from Food Network Magazine)
