LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the cherries in teh middle! Very cute idea!

Cambo - thank you for such a terrific idea, it was so much fun to work on.

I'm not sure by looking at the packaging how large they are....are they comparable to regular (round) sandwich toothpicks? If so, I see NO reason why they wouldn't work! Great find!

well, here's my first attempt....not perfect but pretty good. When my 16 yr ds saw it...he says "Hey Mom, it looks just like a bouquet of flowers"...guess that means it turned out right!! LOL

Thanks again Cambo for the idea and thanks again for whoever did the mini one (sorry...i'm really bad with remembering names!!!)

ugh...having probs posting pict...should be in my photos tho...thanks for looking!!

This is my latest....and LAST bouquet of the weekend! I had a total of 42 bouquet orders....WHEW! Glad they're done! This one was for my MIL....they're WASC cake filled with raspberry filling! It was my first time filling them and was hoping for no problems.....NO problems whatsoever!

I just made 2 bouquets for Mother's Day. I can't post pictures yet because we haven't developed the film. I know we're still in the dark ages with no digital camera.

I made a 12 regular sized bouquet with a 5 inch pot and a 12 mini bouquet with a 3 1/2 inch pot. I have an Otis Spunkemeyer plastic container that held frozen cookie dough and is slightly larger than the 5 inch pot. I placed some shelf liner on the bottom, put the pot in and placed tissue paper around it to hold it in place. I put the smaller bouquet in a rectangular shaped tupperware that was slightly larger than the pot with shelf liner underneath and the packs of sandwich picks and plastic picks on either side to hold it snugly. Then I put both containers in a large rubbermaid container-58 qt. with shelf liner underneath. (Can you tell that I don't want anything moving.) thumbs_up.gif I taped a basket bag over the entire rubbermaid container.

We put the container in the trunk and headed to church this morning. It's a 45 minute drive on highway and city streets. My husband thankfully is a good driver and both bouquets were fine when we got to church. I took the container in so it could sit in AC until church was over. We only had a minor problem on the way to mom's (15 min.) The trunk got too hot and 2 cupcakes had the icing slip off. I put the bouquets in the fridge and subbed 2 fresh ones that I brought.


They both turned out great and were a hit at our party.

Thanks Cambo!

Just wanted to share my story too...I made one for my MIL (Photo is in my pics), we had dinner at a restaurant. As I carried it in, I had comments from EVERY table like, "wow, look at that, is that for me? etc". I had one lady at the table next to us keep looking over and whispering to her companion. Eventually she came over and asked me where I got it from because she wanted to order one!
Silly me didn't ask her how much she would have paid for it...It got rave reviews.
My cupcakes were a white chocolate mud and the icing was vanilla and musk flavoured buttercream. YUM (If I say so myself!)

Here are a couple of my first attempt. Everyone loved them. I gave one to my Grandma and this morning she told me she hasn't wanted to eat them because she thinks it is too pretty. I told her to dig in! I want my cakes to look pretty but would be devestated if they weren't eaten!!!

Thanks again Cambo for the idea!!

Yes, this site was previously mentioned and I had already ordered some boxes from them! Should be getting them soon! Thanks for reposting the case someone else is interested!

Rajinaren & Lueet, Thank you. I thought they turned out pretty good. Oh and they are mini cupcakes.

Thanks again!

Here is my second attempt. Look a lot better than my first ones, but I am still having a heck of a time with them falling off. My cakes are just way too soft. I tried less batter so there is no dome. And I tried baking them a tad longer so they would be firmer, but it still didn't work. I am working from a mix, so maybe I need to just switch mixes.

i finally had a go at it! this is my first time using a 1m tip so i obviously need some practice. thanks to cambo and all you ccer's for the idea and inspiration!

That wrist maneuver works well, Cambo, thanks for the tip~

I use a box mix too. I also used 2 toothpics per cupcake. I stuck the toothpic in the foam first and attached the cake. Then I added a second toothpic into the cupcake afterwards so I could see where it was needing support. The pic inserted after it was attached seemed to have a better hold of it too. Then I iced the cakes on the foam. much easier that way so I didn't mess up the icing. icon_biggrin.gif

Hey, I just made my first cup cake bouquet for a friend's bday!! I saw everyone's on here and just got inspired. I was wondering what people charge for theirs. I was trying to figure out how much money I actully spent making it. Mine has 11 cup cakes on it. The pot was the cheapest thing I had, found it at the dollar tree! So....if anyone has any suggestions as to what to charge that would be very helpful! Thanks.....

I've made 6 bouquets with varying degrees of success.... the cupcakes keep falling off. My latest trick is to 'glue' them with royal icing first, then insert a toothpick. Have another order due tomorrow morning for a teacher appreciation gift... keeping my fingers crossed.

Deana are they mini cupcakes or 'standard' sized? They look great! I love the colour combination.

these are actually full size cupcakes! I couldn't believe how many actually fit. I think my stryofoam is sitting up too high - giving me way too much space to fill. =) Customer was very happy!

I think if I smoosh the ball down more, I'll be able to rest the cupcake on the lip of the pot to give it a little more stability. They stay put as long as they are sitting on my counter.. . it's when I go to deliver them that they topple off...

It's all a learning process, right?
