Cupcake Bouquet Idea - Opinions Please! - Page 24

post #346 of 454
I was going to post a picture for you all to see but my camara just went to prom. Ha ha, so did my daughter!!!! lol.

Cambo, I just can't thank you enough. I want to send you a private message. Do I pm or email???

Anyway, I did eight bouquets yesterday. A girl at work said that mine looked like carnations. My goal was a snowball bush!!! lol. Just to add to the bouquets. I have twirled a green wire and put a fondant bumble bee on it. Really cute.

I love all of the great Ideas. I'm starting the rest tonight. Twelve more bouquets tonight for tomorrow. Thank you Cambo!!!!

I just made a bouquet on friday and one of cupcake's frosting also fell off...So, I let them dry a bit more and they seemed to do fine...Are you putting them on the toothpicks before you frost? If so you could try frosting- drying-then placing..Good luck!

WOW...I'm so sorry that folks are having trouble w/ the bouquets! Are ya'll using toothpicks, or the wooden picks that I posted a picture of (they seem to hold the cupcakes very tightly). One thing I suggest doing before you stick the cupcakes on the pick and right after icing them is to "tap" the cupcake on your counter to force the icing down onto cake....also, if your icing is on the "thinner" side, it will want to slide off (I learned that one that hard way)!

I leave NO room between the cupcakes at their base! Just squoosh them on! I think that actually might help them to stay on also!

Here is my rendition of Cambo's bouquets..I couldn't find any pots that I liked exept these...I used bags of hershey's kisses for weights..thought the mom's would like an extra treat..Opinions are welcome and wanted...Critical or not- let me know what you think of them.

Cambo? or anyone....You probably already answered this question....but how do you transport these in a car? Hmmmm...mine came out wonderful in my pics, but I've been having my poor daughter go with me everywhere and holding them steady in the car! LOL! She's pretty much done...so I need to find a new way.

Thanks Sugarbakerz...I'll try that! It looks pretty sturdy! Better than my daughters arms flapping around in the back seat! LOL!

Thanks to cambo! I made a Bouqet too. I added my picture in the gallery. I did a different one with cherry in middle and instead of paper sherds i just kept tissue paper's inbetween and added two butterfiles. I gave this to my aunt she just loved it.

I made three of these for mothers day and everyone loved them. I used the round toothpicks and I used an extra one underneath each cupcake for a little extra support. I also found that freezing the cupcakes help them be a little more sturdy when sticking them on the toothpicks. I found these on eBay, do you think they would work?

Cambo - thank you for such a terrific idea, it was so much fun to work on.
