I am searching on an easy way to package these for delivery. I have 5 to deliver to the same person and don't want them tipping over! icon_smile.gif

So.. does anyone have any ideas on delivering/packaging these? icon_razz.gif I'm thinking of putting a small dot of hot glue on the bottom of the pot to place in the delivery box so they won't budge.

can you wrap them in the shrink wrap and tie with a bow? I always use the nonskid stuff for rugs. Works great wont move an inch!

What kind of a pot are you putting them in?

I am planning to put maybe 8-10 cupcakes into a larger clay pot. Weigh it down with rocks in the bottom. I am using this tutorial that was posted on CC http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=646096&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=15

I am delivering about 4-5 bouquets to the same person so I may sit in a shallow box with the non skid stuff in the bottom of the box. My main concern was them being too top heavy and tipping over. I made these once before and they tipped while delivering. But I'm thinking the container was not heavy enough. I think this will work?

When I delivered mine, I took some twine and tied the tops of the pots to the sides of the boxes. This helped keep them upright. HTH
