so sorry that happened to you. This ALWAYS happened to me too (I think my cc are too moist) that's why now I use the cup method.

You can make a large bouquet w/ 19 cc using standard plastic 5 oz. cups like in the first pic.

Or you can use 7 plastic 2 oz. cups (they're shallow, and used for salad dressing in restaurants you know the little cups you get with your salad?) and glue them into a flower pot.

I also recently made some mini cc bouquets w/ about 30 minis in each one... using plastic 1 oz. cups (used for jello shots or so the part store told me) I also put toothpicks into each one for extra security since the customer was travelling with them.

Thank you for posting the pictures! I've always wondered how they worked. I kind of tried it one time with toothpicks, but my cupcakes were too moist and the weight of the cupcake and gravity make the toothpick tear through the liner and cupcake. I gave up and came up with a different plan for Mother's Day last year. Now I might try them again one day!

Wow, beautiful! Where do you get those little cups? I had the same problem with the cupcakes sliding down but it looks like those cups would do the trick.

Sams carries them as well as food distributors, if you know anyone that owns a restaurant or bakery, they could order you some from their distributors

I've never done a cc bouquet, but it looks like the ones near the bottom are almost upside down. Gravity will (and looks like it did) take over. If you need to finish this now and can't get the cups, maybe try cutting the ball in half so you have a dome and none of the cc's are upside down. You won't get as many on there, but at least they should stay.

Those are gorgeous! I was thinking of doing thes for Mothers day this year but was leary. Now I think I will go for it.!

Thanks for all the pics.

And you can get the cups at Smart & Final if there is one where you live.

Khalstead-

Thanks so much for the pictures! I want to make some bouquets for a few things coming up but cant decided if i like the large or minis bettter! Was either of them particularly harder or easier? That might help me decided lol


So another things....you just glued the plastic cups to the container you said right? Just some hot glue?

to give you an idea I charge $25 for the large 19 standard bouquets and I charge $30 for the mini bouquets!! lol the minis require actually piping a rose and take MUCH longer. The large ones I can assemble the cups, pipe the cc, airbrush the cc, put them into the cups, pipe in leaves, etc. in under 20 min.!

The minis take me at least an hour to pipe the roses, assemble the cups, put in the toothpicks, put in the cc, etc.

Also with the minis, when you do them.... I freeze my cupcakes after I pipe the roses on them (I literally secure the little cc to my flower nail and use it as the base to pipe the rose directly on) so that they aren't quite as fragile while I'm putting them into the cups (I'm kinda rough on stuff lol)
