Just made my first mini cupcake floral arrangement. After I took the picture three of the frosting flowers fell off. If I put less of the bottom, you could see the styrofoam. Any suggestions?

Thank you
LL

press a little harder onto the cupcake with the frosting. Sort of difficult to understand, but maybe the frosting wasn't firmly pressed enough against the cupcake.

Cut you styrofoam in 1/2 before putting it in the bucket. You'll get less of an angle so you're not fighting gravity and you get two bouquets per styro ball.
