Cupcake Bouquet lovers.. I found a great way

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
to keep the cupcakes on icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif I took pictures but when I tried to post it here, I got a message that no jpg allowed icon_confused.gif ... first, I made it into a topiary, and used mini cupcakes. Use any heavy vase you want, and fill it with dry beans. Glue an appropriate sized round styrofoam ball in it (mine is 8"). (I sprayed mine with green Design Master spray paint). Cut a 1/2" wood dowel and put it in place. (I sprayed mine with cherry finish spray paint). Another styrofoam, mine is 4" on top. Hot glue greenery on the bottoms of the styro, and embellish with a ribbon bow. Then take 3/4 oz. plastic souffle cups and poke a hole in the bottom with a toothpick. Arrange the cups all over the styrofoam. Bake the cuppies and immediately place them in the plastic cups so they don't spread as they cool (I poked a hole in the bottom of the cuppie with a sharp tool to make it easier to slide onto the toothpick). (They cool quickly, and my topiary held a total of 44 cuppies). Decorate as desired. I think it came out pretty well, and no problems with them falling out. Note: If I had to transport this, I would not place the cupcakes on till I reached destination. I will upload the final picture in my photos...

I totally forgot to mention icon_confused.gif ... that I formed this idea for uses other than the mini cupcakes; like cake bites, truffles, candies, any bite sized treats, or even strawberries (using the chocolate to attach it to the cup, and easy on the toothpick hole). I am sure you all can think up other ideas as well... icon_smile.gif

Thanks icon_biggrin.gif They are available at places like Gordons Food Supply and Smart N Final.. Places that carry items for the small businesses and warehouse type stores.. They come in large quantities, like 200 per package, or similar, and they are not very expensive.
