Also have a question..can you use plastic buckets? i know they are not as sturdy, but perhaps if you reinforced them?

Another decorating technique you can use, is get a printed napkin and cut the design out and then Mod Podge it onto the front of your pot, this is how I did my daughters Lollipop Bouquet almost 15 years ago, it works great.

I buy plastic buckets or metal buckets at local crafts stores of the dollar store. If doing the Styrofoam ball method you want to use party sticks instead of toothpicks. It helps too if you use a little royal icing or candy melts to dab the bottom of the cupcake liner before you stick it. Helps the cupcake stay on the stick better. Also, frost them after they are on the stick.

If you are doing the cup method, I find that if you take a piece of scotch tape and wrap over the cups where you stapled them, it gives more strength and the cups do not rip as often when you put the cupcakes in them. I use 2oz cups for a 7 cupcake or 12 cupcake bouquet and 5oz cups for larger bouquets.

These work for 7 cupcake bouquets http://www.amazon.com/Cupcake-Bouquet-Plain-White-Window/dp/B008RYWPUY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365176221&sr=8-1&keywords=cupcake+bouquet+boxes

 

For bigger ones I use a standard cake box and cut off the top. Then I make a domed lid and tape it over the top using poster board.

 

Make sure you put Styrofoam or an insert in the bottom to keep the cupcakes from moving around during transport.

I tried the cup method. It worked out wonderful. I amazed myself. I have never used a bag and tip and my expierence with cake decorating is limited to putting frosting on the cake and using candles that spell out Happy Birthday with the name written with the premade squeeze tube that you snip off the end. So if I can do this anyone can. The hardest part for me was stapling the cups together. My stapler was too big. Once I found a smaller stapler things went smooth. I used the butter cream frosting. I tried to make a two tone frosting but my skills with coloring are lacking and I ended up with a blob so I went to a solid color. The mini cupcakes I frosted while in the cups and I just did it as I did the larger cupcakes. The larger cupcakes I frosted first and then put in the cups. I think it was easier to frost after they were in the cup. I am thinking of making these as centerpieces for my son's wedding shower. I plan to frost them then freeze them. Assembly will be done at the hall and with frozen frosting I think it will work out without smushing the frosting.
