How do I do a Cupcake Bouquet? - Page 3

I think that you can tack the cups with hot glue to the plate.

This is awesome. I love it. I think I will try some soon. They are so cute. I just have to read through all the directions because I don't quite 'get it ' either.

Someone should manufacture a kit and make that $ icon_lol.gif .

I know Decopac just came out with a cupcake bouquet kit. I got to use it for my dd birthday in March.

The downside is that it only holds 6 cupcakes so I bought 5 of them for her horse themed party. I'll be using them again though in June for a housewarming.

i still don't understand how the cups and the plates and the ruffles and the other thingies are sticking together...

This is such a cute idea. I haven't ever seen anything like this with cupcakes before. I have a cupcake order this weekend, and will likely have a dozen extra. Might just be making one soon!! Can anyone tell me how to save these posts, so I can refer to them at a later date??

I love this idea.

I think if you hot glued the cups to the plate the cup would melt?

maybe some duct tape on the bottom of the cup?

These are my own instructions for cupcake bouquets. They may be a little clearer that the original ones.

My questions: What do you use for a handle? How are you attaching it? Also what size round cake board are you using, or can it vary?
post #40 of 94
I didn't use a cake board at all. The plates are all that you need. There is no handle on the ones that I made.

Oh, I didn't attach the cups to the plates. The plastic disposible plastic plate that I used under the paper plate wasn't a flat plate. It's edges are raised to keep the food from spilling out. This "lip" keeps the cups from moving around too much.

I am reading the instructions, trying to get a better understanding of this plate thing. I have been dying to make one of these.

The paper plate, is that just a normal, 9" plate, or does that have to be a 10" plate, also? Most plain paper plates sold here are 9". Only the Dixie and Solo plates come in larger sizes around here.

I am asking because if they are standard 9" plates, I am thinking of using one of those cheap paper plate holders from the dollar store to support it instead.

It's just a standard paper plate. For the plastic plate, I used a 10" Hefty interlocking plate. The paper plate comforms to the shape of the Hefty plate nicely. The measurements don't have to be "exact". They a really just a guide line. I couldn't find the exact size that the original directions called so I played around a little to find sizes that would work. I ended up with a lot of extra cups and plates that I will have to use at the next family cookout but I also found out that a lot of different sizes will work just as well. A 9" paper plate will work ok. The only reason that I use a paper plate at all is that I couldn't get my stapler to staple thru the plastic plate. So, I improvised. I bet the paper plate holder will work just as well. It's just used to stabilize the cups.

Thanks!
I will be making one of these for my step-daughter's birthday. She is a beach baby, and loves the sun. Her birthday is in August, so there will be lots of flip-flops, umbrellas, and suntan lotions make of chocolate to decorate this one! I do not know if I will be doing molds or chocolate clay yet, but either way, it is going to be fun!

The hardest part is stapling the cups together but once that is done, the rest is easy.

I used a 10" cake board and Elmer's glue and glued the ruffle to the board first; then I glued the cups down on the ruffle.

I brought my 5 oz cups from Food Lion but I saw them in WalMart also.

A little trick that I used; If you have large gaps after stapling the cups, don't worry, just use some gum paste or mmf cut to the size and apply over the gap making sure to secure to the rim.

Here's the one that I did.
