I'm sure there must be some kind of trick for this... I'm planning on selling cupcakes and other goods in an outdoor market. I figure I can keep my product that I'm selling in a cooler to keep it fresh, but still need something to put on my table for people to look it and order off of. Any other ideas on outdoor display items appreciated as well. Thanks
How about marshmallow cream? Would that hold up?
Professional food photographers use shaving cream to replace whipped cream since it holds up better to heat generated by the lights.
They also use glue instead of milk when shooting cereal.
Can you use royal icing to frost the display cupcakes, instead of buttercream? You'd have to make lots of it to frost a nice amount of cupcakes, but it will hold up perfectly once it's fully dried and you can keep them afterwards for future events, just keep them stored in cardboard boxes away from light and dust. The cupcakes will just go stale, not mouldy.
awesome! Thanks for the tips!!
That's what one of the ladies in our cake group does only she takes it one step further. For cupcake displays, she fills the cupcake papers with dry oatmeal then tops it off with royal icing swirls. The dry oatmeal keeps forever and so will the royal.
