Ok, so I am making my first cupcake bouquet this weekend. I have read all of the dirctions but I thought maybe so of you could give me some trial and error advise. Any tips or tricks would be great.

My advice would be to definitely angle your bottom toothpicks upward. This will aid in the cupcakes not falling off. I had to use two toothpicks in a couple of the bottom cupcakes as well.

I like to put my icing on once the cupcakes are already on the picks, that way I don't smudge them. I have iced them before I put on the picks (actually I use popsicle sticks) and it was harder to position them. This way, you get them all in the spot you want and then you put on your icing!

Here is what I did. After trying the toothpick style with success but not completely happy with the results I found a picture on CC of a bouquet made by stapling 5oz. plastic disposable cups together to make your frame. You then hot glue this to a cake board and wrap the whole thing up with tissue. You put all your cupcakes in and then frost. They come out beautiful everytime!!!

If I did this right a picture will be attached that cinjam (here on CC) sent me to help me get a visual. If I didn't do this right (I won't be suprised lol) look up photos by cinjam and you will see the cupcakes.

The cup method is exactly how I do it, so much easier IMO and they always look nice! I can email you further instructions if you need. Good Luck! Andrea

I agree with the cup method. I had a bad stapler and ended up doing 3 bunches of 7 instead of the 19 that I had seen. The hardest thing about doing these is finding the cups! icon_smile.gif

Here is a link to mine...
