Parable--awesome ccb. Those colors really pop. And the flowers look so real.

this is something I'll have to try!
SherriSenger - yours are absolutely gorgeous! Would you mind explaining to me how your making the rose on the cupcakes with the 1M tip? I'm not quite getting it.
saving this for a future project!

Here is the cupcake bouquet I made today. I did it with smaller flowers all over instead of the bigger ones.

OK now! i have two questions!

#1 has anyone ever done this in a flower pot?? How?

#2 Would a 1M tip look just as good as Sherrie's??

You are suppose to start from the middle Then go around, right??

I guess that was 3 ?'s! icon_rolleyes.gif

Sherri and juro, both of y'alls cupcakes are beautiful. I did some one time that were like mums. I just pulled leaves around and and around from the outside and worked my way in. I'll see if I can find a picture. I made them for a friend and she put them together when she got there, but I think she gave me a picture of the finished product.

Okay, these are nothing in comparison to the others, but what she did when she put them together was she put a styro ball in the flower pot which she then put tulle on and she skewered the cupcakes and put them in the ball. Now I probably would have put them close together, but they're still cute. And the cupcakes touched in the box, so you have some transfer of icing on them, but you can see the mum look to them anyway.

In the flower pot w/cupcakes on skewers is how I have seen them done. There is also a green styrofoam ball that you can get too that sort of blends away. Cupcakes are close together and because of the roundness the bottoms touch and gives more room at the top. Very cute and always a big hit.

I'm curious, these look great from the top, but what about from the side? Do you just see plastic cups? Hopefully CC will make a tutorial of these since I'm still a little confused. Also, I've never heard of putting two colors in one bag. Anyone care to elaborate on that?

maybe I missed it - but where can you buy those little plastic cups? I haven't seen them....

I got clear 5oz plastic cups at the dollar store. It does take some looking around to find the right cups(at least for me it did!).

Also what I learned when playing around with making cupcakes for a bouquet is that I have to use 'jumbo' size cupcake liners. I wasn't thinking ahead and made a batch with 'medium' liners and the cupcakes just fell into the glass. icon_redface.gif
Good luck!

I am also wondering about putting the two colors into the bags to get a sort of swirly look?

I was trying to figure something out to bring to my daughters preschool class for her birthday next week and now I have it! The kids will love this icon_biggrin.gif

I LOVE this idea!! Hopefully I will do it right and surprise my mom at work with a bouquet for Mother's Day!! Amberslilzoo, for 2 colors, you can "stripe" your bag down each side (using just the gel or paste color with a small paintbrush) with the colors you want. Disposable bags are not recommended because the color just slides down the side of the bag. Parchment bags are what you want to use. The vinyl bags will stain easy so you probably will not want to use those either. Also, there is a tutorial here on CC where the lady uses plastic wrap to "wrap" her icing in the plastic wrap and places down into her vinyl bag and it is a lot less messy on cleanup. I personally have not tried this, but it looks like a great idea.
I don't know the link, but just look under "articles" I believe and you will find it. Hope that helps!!

Oh you guys! I'm supposed to be taking my final exam online and now I'm going to have to rush through it so I can go try one of these bouquets. I absolutely love this idea. You all are so incredibly talented. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with all of us.

Hello!!! I love this thread! Ive been wanting to try one for some time. But I was too lazy to look for instructions, lol. My mother LOVES yellow roses....I sense a great mothers day gift in the horizon.

I am having a hard time finding color mist though......anyone know where I can get it? Aside from online. Perhaps Michaels....joAnns...etc.

TIA !

This is an excellent idea! I can't wait to give it a try for Mother's Day this weekend. My Granny, Aunts, and Cousins will be knee-deep in cupcakes! icon_lol.gif

In my case the only place I've seen them is at Hobby Lobby. Perhaps wherever they carry Wilton products. (I haven't seen them at Walmart). Not sure if there's another brand for the color mist stuff.

I plan to get some eventually, they look fun! thumbs_up.gif

Ok....so I searched all the way to kingdom come and found neither 5oz cups OR color mist. *bangs head on counter*

Our walmart did NOT have the cups...but our local Smart and Final had them...thank the lord!! =)

I >did< find 3 1/4 oz cups which I think will work fine. The cupcakes sit in there quite nicely. I havent frosted them....yet....due to the color mist dificulties. I will post a pic as soon as I find some....or just give in and make due with what I have!

JoAnn Super Stores do have color mist. Probably 5 or so diff. colors. I'm totally excited to try this next week. It's my daughter's last day of preschool on Thursday and thought I would do a smaller version of the cupcakes and get a nice plant pot to put them in w/some ribbon. I totally missed Teacher Appreciation week.

I have been using the 3 oz. cups that are with the bathroom cups. I found some that are plain white plastic so that I don't have cartoon characters showing! LOL! I was wondering if anyone uses the cup method for mini cupcake bouquets. My minis will fall down into the 3 oz. cups I'm afraid. Thought about buying some disposable communion cups but would have to glue them together I guess. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Love this thread!

Just thought I'd share what I came up with for the mini bouquets. I was searching the store over and over to find something to make my mini bouquets with and a lightbulb went off when I was the plastic Easter eggs. I bought two big packs and have made 8 holders. I simply seperated the eggs and used the bottoms together to make a holder and the tops to make more. I have a low-temp glue gun which I used to put them together and it's working marvelously. I haven't assembled any of the cupcakes but will post a picture when I get some done this evening. Wish me luck! If it works, I'll be buying all those plastic eggs that are on clearance after the holiday!

How did the Easter egg holder turn out? I would love to know because I make the minis, too.
