I was just thinking...if there is still an issue with them being top heavy, try an azalea pot. They aren't quite as tapered as the standard terra cotta. These are gonna be so cute Cambo!!!!

Oh, you're good! I just got back from the craft store and picked up an azalea pot! These should work even better and there were different designs on the side of them also! Thank you! I'll post pics as soon as I can!

Martha Stewart had these in her magazine a few years ago. I made them for a baby shower and it was a huge hit. She filled her container with beans to keep it from being so top heavy. I had a problem with the the icing staying on some of the cupcakes. Overall, it was really cute though.

Oh I just had another thought. If you glued them on with royal icing and used the skewers.

Did you put anything in the bottom of the pot? I know with cookie bouquets you put beans or marbles in your pot to help with the weight issue. That might help with these.

I didn't have to put anything in the bottom of the pot....the pot itself outweighs the cupcakes, even with icing on them. We may have to come up with something clever to "deliver" them in....in case there's a toppling problem, although I haven't had the issue yet (knock on wood).

Cambo, If you are using a 4" pot... what size styrofoam ballare you using? I really like the look and size of the one you did.

Also a 4" ball.....almost 1/2 the ball fits down in the pot, leaving a nice "mound" above it to give the cupcakes nice height! Here's one I did tonight for fun....it's 7 cupcakes....I'm working on a large 14 CC one now! I'll post when finished!

P.S. Forgive me.....my icing was a little stiff since I didn't add butter and flavorings, etc., because they're samples! My next one will be better....and pink and red!

Cambo, on the one with 14 cupcakes... did you use the green crinkly paper or just on the one with 7?

These are just adorable - have you considered gluing on the drip bottom to the flowerpot for extra stability in travel, then perhaps you wouldn't have to even use a box. You could use celophane and tie it up above the entire arrangement with a simple bow. Just a thought - I love the colors of the roses also.
