How on earth do you transport a cupcake bouquet? It seems like any box you put it in, it will mess up the icing. Any thoughts?
Any other tips or ideas on cupcake bouquets before I make my very first one?
I have to do an order for 14 of them this summer and I am going to transport them in boxes from my local florist. Have you seen the boxes that have holes cut in the top for the vases to sit in. That's the only thing I have come up with...Hope that helps.
I take shallow shipping boxes, usually the small size. Build the box so the sides are sturdy. Then cut a whole in them the size of the bottom of the pot. I think make slits around the circle so that it works kind of like a petal that can be pressed in. It keeps a tight hold on the pot.
I like shallow boxes because it makes it easier to get the pot out later.
If you are delivering for a customer, I would wrap the boxes in a simple or matching wrapping paper because usually they are not pretty.
I glue the cc bouquet to an 8" or 10" cake board and wrap it loosley with clear basket wrap and tie matching ribbon to the top.
