I only use mixes (enhanced) and have not had a problem with breakage or tearing off the toothpick. Could depend on region and humidity?

I am totally bummed that I didn't find this sooner. Could have marketed this for Mothers Day. Great ideas everyone! Love it!

Well I thought seeing as though everyone else was having a go....I'd have a try. I mixed mini cupcakes with normal sized ones. My "roses" leave a lot to be desired, but I'm sure my MIL will like it (Ihope it stays in one piece!) I will have some more practise ready for my mum's birthday in a couple of weeks.

Well, I decided to give it a try anyhow. I did not have the right tip, so I made due with what I had. Didn't turn out as well, but they still worked. I forgot to buy grass, so that didn't help matters. Ended up just putting a thin coat of green BC on the stryofoam. And I really wish I would have gone with the clay pot. They look so much cuter in those. Oh well. Was fun to make!

no container. I shaved off some of the styrofoam ball so that it would sit flat and then skewered on the cupcakes. I wanted it to have the essence of her wedding boquet.

Oh, I remembered a good trick too when I was making mine and the styrofoam wouldn't fit in. If you rub styrofoam on styrofoam they will "sand" each other down. I cut my ball in half and used the two halves to sand down the outer edges so it would fit in my pail. Just thought I would share this little tip.

I did a boquet like this (I think it's on page 12-if not it's in my photos). It was done to serve at a bridal shower.

Someone ask if we added anything to add weight to our containers. I was concerned about it tipping over so I found some smooth river rocks in a net bag at $ Tree, and I placed them in the bottom of my container. It worked beautifully. It didn't take a lot so the bag will last for a while. I made a new one last night with chocolate cupcakes. I think the right container and ribbons makes the cupcakes really pop.

I thought about using the river rocks at $ tree, but wondered.... I did 4 for pickup's today and had no problems EXCEPT with my yellow cake mix ones.... I did 1 in all yellow and then a another customer wanted 1/2 chocolate 1/2 yellow.... every single yellow one tore from the liner as it hung on my toothpick.... and dropped their icing.... the chocolates worked fabulously..... does/has anyone else had this problem with their yellows? Mines was DH yellow, all I ever use, never had a problem with them until now icon_smile.gif just wondering!

mine were white cake mix- some stayed on and some fell off. Hoping chocolate will work better since I have an order for one soon. I think part of my problem was that I always fill mine to 2/3 full. Maybe they were too top heavy with the dome?
