Hello,

I have to make around 100 blossom flower for a wedding cake and I was wondering what people use rather than the flower forming cup. I kept my egg cartons, but i was wondering if someone would have another tip on what to use.

Thank you,
lanicky

I also have a lot of roses to make for an upcoming wedding and I was able to find the perfect container the other day at my grocery store.

There was a bundle of plastic containers that had contained apples and I asked if I could buy them and they said to take as many as I wanted.

They are perfect, much better than the cardboard ones I had gotten there before. Each one holds 24 and has a small hole in the bottom so if the flower is wired it can go down through. They are perfect!

I know not all stores have the plastic ones, but I felt like I had hit the lottery when I found these. So it might be a place to start looking. Now I just need to find boxes that they might fit into! icon_lol.gif

You can make as many as you need by pressing squares of heavy duty foil over your flower former.
