I want to make a cupcake bouquet and have seen a few in the galleries here, but I am not sure the best way to support the cupcake "roses" I am planning to use some small buckets that will fit about 5 cupcakes each I estimate. I would appreciate some advice on how to do this.

I made these a couple times using terra cotta pots. I used a styrofoam ball down in the pot and covered that with shredded paper "grass". Then I used shikebob (sp?) skewers, poked one end into the bottom of the cupcake and the other end into the ball (had to trim the skewers, if I remember correctly).

With buckets, if they are lightweight, you may have to put something in the bottom of them so the bouquet is not top heavy.

Hi, when i did my bouquets i used a flower pot, layered 2 0r 3 sheets of tissue paper that picked upthe colors in the flower pot and put the wedge of styrofoam in the middle and put in the pot..next i put some shredded paper on the styrofoam and before putting the skewer in the cupcake i had purchased some craft foam from Michaels, it comes in all different colors, i cut it into small squares and slid a square on the skewer small enough to be hid by the cupcake and adds to the support of the cupcake so it doesnt slide down the skewer and the point sticks out from the frosting icon_sad.gif...hope this helps

I wish I would have used tissue paper to hide the styrofoam ball, I didn't think of it until after they were done, but definitely would do that in the future.
