I am also wondering about putting the two colors into the bags to get a sort of swirly look?

I was trying to figure something out to bring to my daughters preschool class for her birthday next week and now I have it! The kids will love this icon_biggrin.gif

I LOVE this idea!! Hopefully I will do it right and surprise my mom at work with a bouquet for Mother's Day!! Amberslilzoo, for 2 colors, you can "stripe" your bag down each side (using just the gel or paste color with a small paintbrush) with the colors you want. Disposable bags are not recommended because the color just slides down the side of the bag. Parchment bags are what you want to use. The vinyl bags will stain easy so you probably will not want to use those either. Also, there is a tutorial here on CC where the lady uses plastic wrap to "wrap" her icing in the plastic wrap and places down into her vinyl bag and it is a lot less messy on cleanup. I personally have not tried this, but it looks like a great idea.
I don't know the link, but just look under "articles" I believe and you will find it. Hope that helps!!

Oh you guys! I'm supposed to be taking my final exam online and now I'm going to have to rush through it so I can go try one of these bouquets. I absolutely love this idea. You all are so incredibly talented. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with all of us.

Hello!!! I love this thread! Ive been wanting to try one for some time. But I was too lazy to look for instructions, lol. My mother LOVES yellow roses....I sense a great mothers day gift in the horizon.

I am having a hard time finding color mist though......anyone know where I can get it? Aside from online. Perhaps Michaels....joAnns...etc.

TIA !

In my case the only place I've seen them is at Hobby Lobby. Perhaps wherever they carry Wilton products. (I haven't seen them at Walmart). Not sure if there's another brand for the color mist stuff.

I plan to get some eventually, they look fun! thumbs_up.gif

Ok....so I searched all the way to kingdom come and found neither 5oz cups OR color mist. *bangs head on counter*

Our walmart did NOT have the cups...but our local Smart and Final had them...thank the lord!! =)

I >did< find 3 1/4 oz cups which I think will work fine. The cupcakes sit in there quite nicely. I havent frosted them....yet....due to the color mist dificulties. I will post a pic as soon as I find some....or just give in and make due with what I have!

JoAnn Super Stores do have color mist. Probably 5 or so diff. colors. I'm totally excited to try this next week. It's my daughter's last day of preschool on Thursday and thought I would do a smaller version of the cupcakes and get a nice plant pot to put them in w/some ribbon. I totally missed Teacher Appreciation week.

I have been using the 3 oz. cups that are with the bathroom cups. I found some that are plain white plastic so that I don't have cartoon characters showing! LOL! I was wondering if anyone uses the cup method for mini cupcake bouquets. My minis will fall down into the 3 oz. cups I'm afraid. Thought about buying some disposable communion cups but would have to glue them together I guess. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Love this thread!

Just thought I'd share what I came up with for the mini bouquets. I was searching the store over and over to find something to make my mini bouquets with and a lightbulb went off when I was the plastic Easter eggs. I bought two big packs and have made 8 holders. I simply seperated the eggs and used the bottoms together to make a holder and the tops to make more. I have a low-temp glue gun which I used to put them together and it's working marvelously. I haven't assembled any of the cupcakes but will post a picture when I get some done this evening. Wish me luck! If it works, I'll be buying all those plastic eggs that are on clearance after the holiday!

How did the Easter egg holder turn out? I would love to know because I make the minis, too.
