Hello everyone! I am a newbie with my first ever post! I have began the cake world and i love it!!!! I have done several cakes that i am proud of and some that stink up the place. You all have been so helpful to me over the last couple of months and you didn't even know it. I LOVE CC!!! Anyhoo, on to my question....I am making a cc bouquet this weekend for my mom and MIL and was wondering if i can put filling in those?? If i can what filling is the best for these?? A mousse type or something heavier? I am so excited about making these cutsie things!

I use well-whipped buttercream or ganache. Just stick the round tip in the middle of the top and squeeze. You'll see the cake puffing up, I think it's usually a Tablespoon or so. Stop before the cake breaks too much.
Any questions, feel free to ask, we'll do our best to help.

Sure you can fill a cupcake. I bought the little cupcake decorating kit for about $9 (wilton) and it comes with the cupcake filling tip. I like it better than using a star tip, it didn't make my cupcakes bulge out like the star did. But both work.

I fill my cupcakes with buttercream icing. They are best if done at least a day in advance. The texture changes a little after it has set in the cake. My customer's love them!

What kind of construction are you going to use for your boquet? pot/foam/skewers? or wil the cc's be sitting in small cups?

If using the skewer method, I don't think that filling the cupcake is a good idea - there would be less cake for the skewer to hold onto and the cc will be more likely break apart.

In the HUGE Let's seriously discuss making cupcakes thread I have read many opinions that said the same.

I was going to use the tutorial from minivixen--i believe--where the cups are upside down. I will be using a tera cotta pot though.

I dont think I would fill them.... I do boquets all the time and would be afraid to fill them because if they become too heavy they will just come off the wrapper.

that should work fine then - the cups will hold those cc's even with filling.

Good Luck!!
