Anybody know where I can find one? I've been looking online and the only one I've found that is big enough is hollow, comes in two pieces and costs $21 and I don't really want to spend that much. I've looked at Hobby Lobby and Michaels online and they only go up to 8"

TIA

Holy crap! Why do they cost so darn much? I mean it's a piece of almost weightless styrofoam! Maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way but dang! Guess I'm either gonna have to find a different way or fork over the money for the styrofoam.

The hollow ones won't work?

I don't know. I'm not sure that the hollow one would provide enough support. It's going to hold lotsssssssssss of mini cupcakes and I'd hate for it to crack under the pressure. Again I don't know. What do you think?

I don't know whether it would be compromised either. can you make an 8"? How many more MCCs could you get on a 10" than an 8"?

Seems the 8" are easier to come by...

3 6" balls

or pack the 10" halves with packed RKTs for added support

The RKT might work and I might be able to get an 8" ball to work just have to find a way to keep it from moving around. See I've got this giant teacup planter (never had a plant in it of course, I'd kill it anyway lol) and my idea is to make coffee/tea inspired MCC's and take it to my mom's office and try to get some business and just to be nice since I did work there with most of them for 4 years.
