I was wondering if any of you have ever put a small cake inside the pot then put the cupcakes as the flower part? How would I do that? I need more servings. Any help would be so helpful!!
I have not done a bouquet with cupcakes but I have baked the cake in a new, clean terracotta pot. Then I put the cookies on a stick to make a bouquet. Have a look at my picture :
you can bake in the pot? wow I had no idea! how did you get the cookies to stay upright and not fall over?
I purchased new terracotta pots and washed them in hot water and then baked in the the oven to sterilise them. When I used them for baking, I lined them with baking paper and baked as usual.
The cookies are on a stick which I just pierced into the cake. The cake supported the cookies.
BarbaraK , i love your signature lol. I laugh a lot and still have mighty hips,so i don't know what im doing wrong,must be the cakes.
ok, I managed it pretty good... I used an 8" terra cotta planter and made a 6" cake. I put the styrofoam in the bottom then plastic wrap (so you can lift the cake out). Then wax paper on top so the frosting won't come off. Then covered the top of the cake with the plastic wrap. Then I put a green napkin over the top. Then used skewers to hold the cupcakes in place. I am very happy with this cake.
I attached a picture....
Wow! It turned out great.... almost too pretty to eat.
Looks great! I love the color on the cupcakes.
