OK, I have been looking around here and found a great recipe for the cupcakes, I am sure I can figure out the stick issue, but I am still open for any tips on making the bouquet!!!

I've never made one before, but I'd like to try eventually. This is just a bump on the topic, I'd love to see what others say.

Oh, and I'd suggest using a cake recipe with butter (not oil) in it - those tend to be a bit more dense.

I would love this information as well. I have tried twice to make a cupcake bouquet and both times, it flopped! I really want to make one. I would greatly appreciate any help!

I have made them a couple times and had the same problem. The first set I made, I used a "scratch" recipe, not based on a boxed mix and they turned out great. Since then, I have tried two different times with different recipes made with a base of a mix and they have totally flopped. Sorry, I have been searching for the recipe that I used and I can't find it anywhere. I do know that the WASC does not work, but maybe something really dense like a pound cake would. The recipe I used (that I totally kicking myself that I can't find) turned out very, very dense. Also, I have been using just toothpicks to hold them up.

There is are pictures in my photos of the two I made that came out good.

btw: this really can be done with any recipe. it's all about the structure, and if you'll use the dixie cups or plastic portion cups like i suggest in the tutorial, they take the weight of the cupcake...dowel rods is also what i used for the stick part.

i used three flavors for these...strawberry delight with vanilla bean creamcheese icing, orange dreamscicle with vanilla bean and orange infused cream cheese icing, and spiced carrot and ginger cake with vanilla bean and orange infuse cream cheese icing. the stawberry and orange ones are an extended mix, and the spice was from scratch and very moist.

give me shout if i can help with anything else!!
