Are you sure they are 2oz? Last night I put an order in for 2oz souffle cups. Then today at Sam's club we happened to get a sample in a 2oz cup. I brought it home and my cupcake liners do not fit in them. Do the cupcakes smoosh in there a little, or maybe when baked the liners are smaller? I just want to make sure I order the correct stuff because it is for my mom's birthday next week. Thanks!

yes, the standard cupcakes work in the 2oz cups, they fit snug. I usually put them into the cups first then decorate/ice

I've made these several times now. What works best for me is to freeze the cupcakes for a little while before assembling the pots. Then, I can really push the cupcakes down into the plastic cups, even using a pointed offset spatula if necessary, and the frosting doesn't move around because it's frozen.

This looks like so much fun! Thanks!

I have done this and it is the 2oz cups.

I have made many of these using 3 oz cups I get at the restaurant supply store. The CC,s fit in, but almost entirely, so I compensate by putting in one of those tulip shaped liners u can get from Wilton. Makes a pretty presentation, and something to grab onto to remove the CC. If it's a large bouquet, I will also use some packaging tape to secure a few of the stapled cups to the container. I do that before putting the tulip liner in, and after adding leaves, etc, u don't see the tape. Great thread.

Where are the cups? I can't find them anywhere.

As far as the boxes, I use plastic.

So, not sure if any of these suggestions have been given already (I read a few responses but not all 9 pages lol). I did two large bouquets for daughters bday and they turned out fantastically (see profile pic). I used the med. sized terracota pots and put half a foam brick in bottom. I got large wooden (pointed) skewers from dollar store and poked them into brick. Then I skewered a few large golden raisins onto stick and then then slid cc on top. The sticky raisins did not slide down skewer and stopped cupcakes from sliding down too. Worked great for me as an alternative to the plastic cups (I try to be environmentally friendly whenever possibleicon_smile.gif) Beautiful piping on cc...WOW!

This thread is excellent! Thank you to everybody who has contributed and KHalstead for posting the cup tutorial. I am definitely going to make some of these as soon as I get cups, I have seen them at my local catering supplier for a few pence each. I will post a picture when I have made one! icon_smile.gif

Also the more I am learning I see that a lot of cake makers find many uses for a hot glue gun so I think I may have to invest in one of those!
