Hi all. I just wanted to share my cupcake bouquets and the rave reviews from the Farmers Market. I was visiting a Farmers Market one day and was eyeing all the scrumptious pound cakes and loaf cakes. I thought to myself, hey, I could do cupcakes since I saw no cupcakes for sale. After speaking with the owner, she said she would be delighted to have some. She purchased 4 on a Friday and called me later that day and said they all sold out and could she have 5 more on Monday. Yippieee! The following week she ordered 7 more, 3 for special orders and 4 for the store. She kindly displayed them right near the register. She is now calling me weekly for orders. (This is only my third week). As I am a relative newbie Im so proud and thankful I found her store. What a gem.

SPECIAL THANKS to KHALSTEAD for her cupcake bouquet tutorials.

I have them packaged in an 8 x 8 x 12 clear poly box with a gold base for support.

Hi Allykat. Here is KHALSTEAD's tutorial. http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-672414.html

I love the way she does this as I too in the past tried the "toothpick/styro" method with disatrous results icon_cry.gif ; not for a customer though, just by making samples. Actually, my "cost" is $6.50 (which is high because of the box as I could not come up with anything else that would be easy to transport, pretty to display and not squish my icing). BUT, selling in a region that has a higher socioeconoic climate, she buys them from me for $22.00 each. I also sell her my extra cupcakes for $10.00 for 6. HTH. Happy baking.

For that bottom pic, are you sticking silk leaves in there? They're so glossy!

KGER - Yes, those are silk leaves that I got from the $1 store and hot glued to the rim. I didn't care a lot for the paper shred because if it touched the BC it would leave an oily mark.

Hollandy & Mrs262- THANK YOU so much for the compliments. They were so much fun to make.

DarleneP - The clay pots are 6" pots with 6" saucers hot glued together. I found the pots at Home Depot and Lowes but you can use any type of pot that has a 6" opening because the 2 oz. cups fit perfectly, which I purchased at Dollar General.

PinkChateau - Your bouquets are just adorable. I've done a few myself and just love doing them. Khalstead's tutorial is the best. Are those real or gumpaste flowers on your first one posted?
