Cupcakes shaped like a wedding dress...How big of a board for 28 cupcakes?

I am making one of those pull apart cupcake wedding dresses for a friends shower, it needs to have 28 cupcakes in it...how big of a cake board should I get?

TIA

Mine was 27 cupcakes and I believe the board is 14 x 18 or 20...yikes bad memory.

 

27 cupcakes create this wedding dress shower cake.

Thank-you!! You cake turned out beautifully! The weather's been so hot here the last few days I'm hoping my b/c doesn't melt!!!

 

I have a 18"x26" board....it may be a bit big but better that than too small :)

You could trim it or add a message on the bottom.

i just did one of these. it was 27 cupcakes and I used 1/2 a sheet of foam core. it was just so much cheaper than the cake board and i needed every inch, anyway. i think it came out to 18x24

Try the Wilton anti-humidity BC recipe. It's the one I swear by and I live in heat every day. Reduce fat and increase sugar 1:4 ratio.

This person's tutorial has listed and shown every step you need to take; including quantity and board dimensions for the 27-cupcake wedding dress she did.

These pictures are amazing!  Thank you for posting them ... you are truly talented!

 

My daughter & I belong to a small mother/daughter book club.  This month, we're reading "The Hundred Dresses" ... do you think this would work for a smaller amount of cupcakes (maybe 15 - 20)?

Thanks!

Cupcake Wedding dress with cupcake floral bouquets Dress is made up for 31 regular cupcakes on a 18 x 26" board Bouquets have 9 cupcakes each

 

So this is how mine turned out :) ended up using 35 regular cupcakes for the dress, edible pearls for the belt and a crystal rhinestone for an accent.

 

You could always use mini cupcakes!!
