I have a Bride that wants cupcakes cascading down the side of her cake, does anyone have any ideas on how to do this?

Has she seen a cake like this? If so, you might want to get a copy of it so you know exactly what she's wanting...and to see how it might be done.

That was my first thought. Weight of the cupcake + icing + the softness of the wedding cake...kinda sounds like a headache waiting to happen. I would love to see a picture too.

It "could" work. I would do it like a cascade of flowers around the cake, using pop-cycle sticks. Probably 2 cupcakes deep. could be cute if they were frosted to look like roses. Would need the larger sticks to make sure it stayed in and I would use a light sponge recipe for the cupcake and an airy frosting so it wasn't too heavy. Definitely set up on site and not to be moved.

Could be a challenge, BUT I would practice first. Could also easily be a disaster without the trial and error.

I seen this on one of the Food network challenges. I think James Roselle? did it. Only he did a stacked wedding cake, and the cupcakes were used as fillers (rows going around the pillars in between) If you could find a picture of it, maybe on FN.
This could be a good alternative
