I sometimes wrap it in the cellophane you get as if you were doing a gift basket. Or in nothing at all. Delivering is the tricky part.

I use plastic flower pots since I can find them for 98 cents at Walmart. The only problem is it being top heavy. I just cut my skewers so that the cupcakes are really close to the top of the pot.

I do not use toothpicks, I use short skewers. Then I glue the condiment cups to the stick in the rights position after impaling them in the stick. I always use a heavy cake and foil wrappers. For wrapping/transporting I used a cardboard shipping box and cut Styrofoam to fit the pot/basket snugly in place. I tried using the plastic gift basket wrappers but no matter how much they were crusted it always seemed to mess up the icing.

This is so cute! Are you decorating your cupcakes before or after you place them in the cups?

post #156 of 187

I have done them both ways. Found it easier to decorate after they are arranged.

What is the best cake to use? I know red velvet is too moist.icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

post #158 of 187
Red velvet is pretty dense though. I use either red velvet or carrot cake. I think the WASC would do well too

With the condiment cups you could probably use anything

I want to make 2 of these for my daughter's wedding for the candy/dessert buffet but I didn't want to use cups..was thinking about using the skewers on the bottom 2 and the round heavy duty toothpicks for the rest of them and ice them after they are all on.  What do y'all think?????

 

Btw, what is WASC????

post #161 of 187

couldn't tell you as I never made them without the cups and I wouldn't try it personally. WASC is White Almond Sour Cream cake

White Almond Sour Cream= WASC

 

I wouldn't do it without the cups. They stand the chance of falling right off. If you do, make sure you do a sturdy cake like pound cake. I always use skewers for all of mine. How many are you planning on putting in each bouquet?

.....about 80/90ish I think..I have the BIG, round styrofoam ball...the 19.99 one @ Michael's.  What about a vanilla mud cake?  Does anyone have a receipe for a WASC cake?

..and any ideas how I can "paint" the ball black..non-toxic??

post #165 of 187

I tried painting styrofoam once. It was not pretty...never had vanilla mud cake so I cannot comment. Make a small practice bouquet.
