Does anyone put any weight in the bottom of the pot? I am worried about the whole thing tipping over.

I have a question for all you veteran bouquet makers.....what is the best buttercream recipe to use for an outdoor wedding in august? I am going to make these for my cousin's wedding and we are going to use them on the tables as centerpieces as well. They won't be directly in the sun, but probably a good amount of heat. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated......

I saw another post recently about this very thing! Others mentioned using a 100% shortening BC instead of 1/2 n' 1/2 shortening/butter. Another person mentioned if they wanted to use a 1/2 n' 1/2 recipe, to add a couple TBS of meringue powder to it to stabilize it. Not sure which I would do.....but thought I would mention them!

I've never filled my pots with anything and haven't had any tipping problems (knock on wood). If you use a terra cotta pot, the pot itself outweighs the cupcakes, so it should stay grounded pretty well!

Thanks for the welcomes and the suggestions for me.....I'm just starting out in all this and there is so much to learn. I have done all three levels of the wilton courses, but when I look around on this site, I feel like such a beginner!!!! I'm sure I'll learn a lot from everyone.....

I want to make one and I went looking for a foam ball today and couldn't find one. I was able to buy a little dummy foam cake tho. Do you think that would work even though it's flat?

I know this is an older thread, however thought this might be the best place to post this.

In regards to packaging the bouquets, has anyone tried the floral boxes? The boxes I am talking about are the kind florists use to hold their arrangements. They have inserts that are placed inside the box and will hold a vase/container/pot etc.

I've been pricing them and have seen them as low as .45 each box. Might help in transporting and bagging.

Just a suggestion icon_smile.gif

Ok all I've read about your cupcake liner problems and didn't see if purchasing specific liners worked better than others. I purchased mine at the local target and had the same ripping/coming off problem. I'm new and this is my first post and I did my first bouquet last week for a friend. I've seen posts on where you've all purchased the liners but the name of the store gets blocked on the posts. I'd like to purchase the sleeve of 500 cupcake liners because it seems cheaper than spending $2 on 75. Since the names won't post if someone can email me maria-barbara.smith@lmco.com I'd like to have cupcake liners that don't tear. I'm just doing these for my friends and I'd like to have liners that don't tear. Thanks
