Is there any way to make display cupcakes? Or any Styrofoam product out there that is like cupcake size.
I did a search for dummy cupcakes on the internet. Here is one site that I found.
I think you can also get a can of Great Foam from your hardware store and spray it into a cupcake liner that is in a muffin pan. It's like a foam insulation that sprays out of the can and expands into hard styrofoam type material.
Hope this helps!
Laugh all you want, but let me tell you what I found ..... !
I had a couple of cupcakes in my display case. I usually throw everything out on Monday and start over for the week, but for some reason, I neglected these two lonely little cupcakes in the corner. When I finally slapped myself in the face and said, "Get them outta there!", I picked them up and they were pretty ... well ... inedible! My grandson could have used them for football practice!
Anyway .... long story longer, these 2 cupcakes are sitting on a display stand ... icing and cake both are hard as a rock, but they look real, they look decorated, they look ok.
I would have thought they would have grown little green sprouts or attracted little 6-legged neighbors, but they haven't.
I probably should really throw them out ....
I did a pile o' cuppies for a bridal show display, I used royal instead of buttercream, and some fondant. They dried hard as a rock and I still have them in the shop window. That was two months ago.
Awesome ideas!!! Thanks!!! I'll look into all of them.
