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



I'm not sure by looking at the packaging how large they are....are they comparable to regular (round) sandwich toothpicks? If so, I see NO reason why they wouldn't work! Great find!

well, here's my first attempt....not perfect but pretty good. When my 16 yr ds saw it...he says "Hey Mom, it looks just like a bouquet of flowers"...guess that means it turned out right!! LOL

Thanks again Cambo for the idea and thanks again for whoever did the mini one (sorry...i'm really bad with remembering names!!!)

ugh...having probs posting pict...should be in my photos tho...thanks for looking!!

She's pretty much done...so I need to find a new way.



I just made 2 bouquets for Mother's Day. I can't post pictures yet because we haven't developed the film. I know we're still in the dark ages with no digital camera.

I made a 12 regular sized bouquet with a 5 inch pot and a 12 mini bouquet with a 3 1/2 inch pot. I have an Otis Spunkemeyer plastic container that held frozen cookie dough and is slightly larger than the 5 inch pot. I placed some shelf liner on the bottom, put the pot in and placed tissue paper around it to hold it in place. I put the smaller bouquet in a rectangular shaped tupperware that was slightly larger than the pot with shelf liner underneath and the packs of sandwich picks and plastic picks on either side to hold it snugly. Then I put both containers in a large rubbermaid container-58 qt. with shelf liner underneath. (Can you tell that I don't want anything moving.) thumbs_up.gif I taped a basket bag over the entire rubbermaid container.

We put the container in the trunk and headed to church this morning. It's a 45 minute drive on highway and city streets. My husband thankfully is a good driver and both bouquets were fine when we got to church. I took the container in so it could sit in AC until church was over. We only had a minor problem on the way to mom's (15 min.) The trunk got too hot and 2 cupcakes had the icing slip off. I put the bouquets in the fridge and subbed 2 fresh ones that I brought.

HTH

They both turned out great and were a hit at our party.

Thanks Cambo!

Just wanted to share my story too...I made one for my MIL (Photo is in my pics), we had dinner at a restaurant. As I carried it in, I had comments from EVERY table like, "wow, look at that, is that for me? etc". I had one lady at the table next to us keep looking over and whispering to her companion. Eventually she came over and asked me where I got it from because she wanted to order one!
Silly me didn't ask her how much she would have paid for it...It got rave reviews.
My cupcakes were a white chocolate mud and the icing was vanilla and musk flavoured buttercream. YUM (If I say so myself!)

Here are a couple of my first attempt. Everyone loved them. I gave one to my Grandma and this morning she told me she hasn't wanted to eat them because she thinks it is too pretty. I told her to dig in! I want my cakes to look pretty but would be devestated if they weren't eaten!!!

Thanks again Cambo for the idea!!
