You are awesome! Thanks for sharing...I would have just shoved some skewers in cupcakes and then into cabbage or something! LOL....another questions..what size tip did you use to do the roses?

KHalstead,
You just hot glue them to the bucket and then hot glue the cups together so they are stabilized? What a great idea! I would never have thought of that! Thanks for sharing. I think I'll try one for Easter icon_cool.gif

Yep, and it's SO much cheaper than buying the foam balls (a 6" foam ball is $6 where i live!!!) that's why I tried to figure out an alternative.


For the roses on the mini cupcakes I use a regular 104 rose tip...........for the roses on a the standard cupcakes (the 7 cupcake pink bouquet in the spotted flower pot), I used a large rose tip I believe it's a 125.

Is it easier to frost them once they are placed in the cup or do you frost before and let the icing crust in the fridge?

I just made some over the weekend and had that same trouble with them wanting to fall off or the toothpick poking through the icing. The minis worked better, I found myself anchoring them against the side of the pot. I still have more to do, so i am off to sams or the party sale store to find these cups. I used the 1M on both large and mini cup cakes. love the look.

I am using both techniques. I put a piece of foam in the bottom of the pot, poked holes in the bottom of plastic cups, inserted a skewer and then put the other end in the foam. I'll keep you all posted!

I always frost before hand, pop them in the freezer to firm them up, and then pop them into the cups. I spin my cupcakes as I ice them so it would be almost impossible for me to do it with them already in the cups!

KHlastead, thank you for posting the link and sharing. Your bouquets are awesome. I called my mom in to see all of your pictures, she loved the last one in the polka dot pot with pink cuppies. I think I am going to try to make one for Easter now.

KHalstead- this was the best tutorial! I have made these before and they were falling all over the place. So easy.. I didn't have the plate to use for the pot to sit in for delivery so I used a egg crate! Worked like a charm! Thanks again! icon_biggrin.gif
