Cupcake Bouquet Idea - Opinions Please! - Page 29

post #421 of 454
Awesome Cami! Completely professional looking! Gotta love those scrapbook materials!

Wish I could get as far as packaging mine. I'm still having issues keeping the cupcakes in the liners, and icing on the cupcakes. Anyone else still having these issues? Any solutions? I have a lot of people interested, but I don't want them to fall apart on them. icon_sad.gif Any ideas

Regardless, Cami, you're creativity is an inspiration!

Thanks Heatherly30! YOU KNOW WHAT.....for the very first time today, I HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE CUPCAKES FALLING OFF/RIPPING AWAY FROM THEIR LINERS! I've never had this problem before.....BUT, I think it's either the humidity OR the liners themselves. I ran out of my other ones (I usually get them from Sugarcraft in a sleeve of 500), but these are cheapo's from WalMart! I'm not sure which, but it really only affected the chocolate ones badly, so I'm more inclined to think it's the humidity! I was getting so PO'd! I have three more to do this weekend, so I better solve my problem quick!

Alright, I'm not alone. When the pro has my same problem, I know I'm not completely useless.

I have been using cheapo liners, so I guess I'll have to hit up Sugarcraft (10 minutes down the street.)

Let me know what you do to solve the problem. I 'll be anxious to hear what creative solution you come up with this time!

Fantastic looking packaging! It really sets the bouquets beautifully. I will have to have a look at trying something similar.

great job on the boxes cambo. i too recently had a problem with the liners- i definately think it was the humidity. i noticed that the choc. cc's baked a little higher (kind of a muffin top) and the liners stayed on. it definately takes away from the look of the cupcake but at least they didn't fall away!

So I tried my hand at a cupcake bouquet today. Had some problems with the icing sliding off. The icing crusted really well and I tapped the cupcake on the counter as previously suggested and still they fell off. icon_sad.gif Any suggestions would be helpful. I did manage to get a picture of it when only one had fallen off. Also the cats had somehow gotten into the cupcakes over night and destroyed a bunch of them icon_mad.gif so I didn't make it as full as I would have liked to. The pic is in my photos by the way, check it out!!

First of all...your arrangement is gorgeous! You did a wonderful job! I think the icing may have slid off because the angle of the cupcakes around the bottom row is pretty drastic....they appear to be nearly 90 degrees. Next time, stick your toothpicks in literally right about the top edge of your pot...and an upwards angle, then place your cupcakes on them. The bottom part of your cupcake will be "sitting" against the ceramic pot, while the top is sitting against the foam (or shred), so they'll naturally be angled up around a 45 degree angle. Hope that helps!

Thanks Cambo!! That definately helps! I was thinking of resting the bottom of the cupcake on the rim of the pot to help support the actual cupcake from wanting to rip in half as I have read some people on this post had problems with. But it does make a pretty bad angle to compete with then! I think your suggestions will help out a lot, thanks again!! I'll be sure to post my next trial run! icon_biggrin.gif

I haven't read the last few pages so I don't know if this was posted or not but I got an email with the following link and if you scroll all the way down to the bottom, they are making one of these bouquets!

NO, not at all upset about it! After I made my first bouquet, my sister came over and said, yeah, I saw that idea years ago on a Martha Stewart show! ha ha!

My guess is a foam ball with green tissue paper around it?
