HELP!! What should I tell this poor woman? - Page 2

post #16 of 72
Ok I just made a cupcake bouquet and it was a little hard but I managed. I but the cupcake against the ball and stuck it with a long skewer. The kind that you use for grilling. then I cut it with wood cutters little longer than the cupcake. I then put the icing on each upcake. I had a hard time because I couldnt do roses so I just did squiggly lines. They ended up looking like carnations. You can even decorate the cupcakes then put on with skewers and use little icing to cover the stick. Dont give up. Try putting your cupcakes in the freezer to stiffen them up. Try and see what happens. Let us know

Maybe contact Cambo through her website about what to do? http://www.cleverconfections.com/

Found this in an old post:

Can you use a little melted chocolate to 'glue' the cupcakes to the base?

Hang in there! CCers to the rescue!!! (sounding "charge" bugle)

I don't know anything about bouquets- but the wilton site is all about using their cupcake stands- if you have those around, maybe use those?

If that doesn't work, my answer is always ROYAL ICING- it's hard as a rock and won't budge. If you have a flower pot that has the cupcakes on top like flowers, use the styrofoam half round, cover in green RI, in case any shows through, then attach cupcakes to RI- they ain't goin' nowhere.

Thanks so much everyone! I'm using tooth picks...tried 3, 4, 5...still no help.
I would love those instructions for the table top display.

These were suppose to be centerpieces for the table. I'm using the styrofaom ball to stick the cupcakes on. But perhaps there's a better way where the cupcakes won't be hanging off the edge? More like in a basket or low round bowl or something?

Boy, I really feel the love right now from all of you! I've never felt so panicked before in my life! I'd rather give birth!!!

What kind of container are you putting them in? I use the fruit skewers to hold mine in place, sometimes they cant be skewered in the middle, I've done a couple, there are some in my photos here or on my myspace.

Okay, so this is what I've come up w/ thanks to cupcakemkr. It's no where near what she ordered, but hopefully she'll like it enough to accept it. The first pic is what they were originally suppose to be in.

That is gorgeous! I actually like your second version much better! icon_smile.gif Great save!!
post #27 of 72
I hate to say it, But I totally love the 2nd version better also! Another thing I hate to admit, but I'd have a very hard time trying to put cuppy's into the first bouquet as well. I'd be right there crying with you also! But your 2nd gave me some inspiration for a thanksgiving centerpiece as wel!
post #28 of 72
I like the second one better too! I wouldn't offer $ back right away, just offer delivery and go from there...

Oh thanks! I was wondering about the refund also. Although, I have a hard time charging $180 for styrofoam cups and a cardboard round. What do you all think?
post #30 of 72
I think your problem was too much of the styrofoam ball sticking out of the container. Whe nyou use the balls, the sit down inside of the pot/bucket, and not as much foam is showing. Were they falling off of the top and top part of the sides too, or just closer to the bottom?

I think they look fine the way you did them though! Are you putting them on hte crystal stands too?
