Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on packaging for cupcake bouquets. I am planning on giving them as gifts but I can't figure out a way to wrap them up with out the packaging sticking to the cupcakes. Thanks

I wrap them in a "basket bag" from Micahels (probably available elsewhere, too) and use a small hand pump (meant for balloons maybe $5 at party city) to fill the bag with air and tie it off with a bow. The air holds the bag away from the cupcakes, like a big bubble. Just make sure to tie your bag pretty tight

Thank you so much. I've used those bags but never thought about putting air in it.

Do you mean like the wrappers the florists use for their bouquets?

Also, how would you place it in the car, making sure it won't topple over?

I actually cut a hole in a box I had on hand (think cereal box sized) that was the size of my flower pot...I then wrapped it, and then I put my cupcake bouquet in and wrapped the entire thing in basket wrap. The box kept the wrap off the cupcakes... ImageImage
