Incredible Edible Centerpieces

Edible centerpieces are becoming increasingly popular and are a super cute way to decorate your table, too.

You will love your edible creations once you see how easy it is to put various food items onto a skewer or stick, and mix them in with other food arrangements. These ideas are perfect for a buffet table, birthday party, wedding, and for baby shower food ideas, or to include in edible gift baskets. Any occasion can be more fun with edible centerpieces!

There are so many foods you can use like cake pops, brownie bites, cupcakes, lollipops, candy, cookies, rice crispy treats, or for a healthier alternative, edible fruit arrangements (don't spend a fortune on an arrangement made out of fruit from a well known franchise when you can make your own edible bouquet). I've also included photos and step-by-step instructions on how to make a watermelon basket, too. They're still very popular - and so refreshing to eat!

From cake pops to a cupcake bouquet to cookies-on-a-stick; you will get lots of oohs and aahs...and plenty of smiles...when you put one of these yummy edible bouquets on your table.

Be sure to take plenty of photos before the party because at the end of your party you’ll be saying…
