Someone please help!! I need to make 200 cupcakes and they are wanting several different cupcake cakes made into fruit shapes. (Apple, orange, etc) I have looked on-line and can't find ANYTHING to look at for an example. It sounds easy, but I would like to look at some ideas! You know of any websites or places I can look? Thanks in advance!!

AI think the idea od shaping the cupcake liner first like in this demo would set you on the right track. Trying not to over think the shape would be my best advice. You don't want to have to go carving lots of little cake shapes! http://www.makeandtakes.com/apple-shaped-cupcakes

For apples and orange you could do a dome shape and then cover it with sugar crystals in the color you want. They used doughnuts in this pic but you could just dome the icing. http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000480531&tag=vglnkc3333-20

Oooh. I know what you mean. For the apple and orange you can bake them in a round shape. Use the foil liners and bake it on a pizza pan (since it is round) instead of in a cupcake tin. Not sure what other shapes you are making but that will work for the apple and orange. You can always add a few to make a stem.

 I have found a pic online of an apple, watermelon, and strawberry so far. I suppose an orange, banana, and grapes would be easy. But I realy would like a pic to look off of. Also I need about 3 more fruits or so! Thanks!
