I need to make some cupcake dummies for a class display, any ideas? I don't want them to be top heavy. Covering them with buttercream. Thanks
At Home Depot they have a product that is a spray foam. It will expand when you spray it. You could spray a little in the cupcake cups/paper and see how that might work. You might have to put the cups in a cupcake pan to help support the cupcake papers. I think it is called "Great Stuff"?
Please line your pan with foil - especially the top of the pan and make it overlap a little in the groove where you will fit the paper cup. This stuff sticks and messes up everything. And wear gloves. Do not fill the cup up. Just spray a little at a time - it really swells up. And you have to useit all at once. You cannot save the rest.
I saw some cupake dummies on the Kitchen Krafts website if that helps. I think they were a little on the pricey side though, from memory.
