hi

A friend wanted a cake surrounded by cupcakes so I have made everything...I dont have any cupcake boxes for transportation..and of course she has a good drive ahead of her...so I dont want to just put the cupcakes around the cake on the board without holding them down...I was thinking a dab of royal icing to hold in place? or any suggestions you may have.

or should they be put on the cake board when she gets to destination..although like I said I dont have a cupcake transporter thingy...lol

please help, she is picking up cake in an hour!!!

thanks so much!
Michelle

put them in a gift box, like the ones that you might clothes in at christmas. It seems like I always have some laying around.

I recently did the same thing (the NE Patriots cake) in my photos. I just attatched the cupcakes with a dab of buttercream, and she put them on a flat surface in the back of her SUV and they traveled with no problem. I attatched them the night before .

I always use a dab of royal icing to hold cupcakes in place for any cupcake cake

I made a cake for my great nieces first birthday. I made a giant cupcake along with several jumbo cupcakes for the party. I transported them in a sheet cake box that I lined with non-skid material that you use for your cabinets. They traveled well over an hour with not a single cupcake moving from its original location.
