What to use for Cupcake bouquet?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My son is having is 1st B-day party next weekend and I want to make centerpieces with cupcakes (cupcake bouquet) but I've never made one. I know they sell those kits but is there a cheaper way to make it????

Help....

for sure... type in cupcake bouquet on here and you will see TONS of photos of something Cambo invented and got going...

you need a pot of sorts be it flower or metal pail
a styrofoam ball comparable to the opening size of your pot
toothpicks, thick sturdy ones are best.
use paper shred and place on your ball, then begin putting your cc's on your ball and afix them with the toothpick.... you will learn what is best for you on placement. If you tilt them downward and try to ice them, the icing will weigh the cc down and it will fall off. Just a hint.

Fiddlesticks, I have printed out the 4 page tutorial in color ( 10/29/2007) It was titled " How To Make a Cupcake Bouquet " Is that the one people want? If you can PM me instructions on how to post them ( I told you I was a computer NO NOTHING! ), I'd be happy to post it....if it is ok with her.Of course, she would get the credit. Cambo? Right?

FYI, I don't think it would be appropriate to post her tutorial if she asked heath to remove her photos and tutorial. I would consult with them prior to posting it, I would see it as a breech in her wanting to not have stuff posted on her. Cammie is a dear friend of mine and has worked very hard to patent the inner workings of her system for cc bouquets and last I heard she was approved on the patent, so just by virtue of that information, I wouldn't do it without consulting the big guns 1st. I am not trying to offend or anger anyone, just trying to keep everything on the up and up.

I made a cupcake bouquet last week. I covered a styrofoam ball with tissue paper and placed inside a flower pot. I then placed toothpicks on the bottom row and added the cupcakes, slowly building up. We then frosted the cakes with buttercream frosting. Our first batch of frosting dripped off, so I had to make it thicker and start over. After the cupcakes were frosted, I then added decorations. There is a picture on my blog @

Can anyone please email me the instructions on the cucpake bouquet as well? I searched the patents office and they had nothing on a cupcake bouquet kit etc...... I do wish her luck though.

Hi guys! I'm so sorry for the inavailability of my tutorial! Basically, how Sugarbakerz outlined is how I made them! Simply a styrofoam ball, paper shred and toothpicks!

While my patent is pending I was advised by my attorney to pull public postings of the "how to". Although the process of assembly is drastically different than my original illustration, I was advised to pull it....for now!

sweettoothmom: you will not find my patent information relative to cupcakes....it's not assigned that way. It is also not a kit.

Thank you all for your support!
Cammie

Thanks Cambo that makes sense why they could not locate the patent info. I was hoping to find the kit or instructions or something via the patent office and that is why I went that direction in my search.

Also CC'rs can I ask are you using a regular cake recipe for these or do you need a lighter or heavier batter to make it more stable in the cupcake bouquet? I read the input on the thicker frosting but the actual cupcake portion is making me wonder.
