Cupcake Bouquet disaster!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I made my first cupcake bouquet today and it went wrong!!  It was all ok til the bottom cakes started falling off the sticks :(  I used 3 cocktails sticks for each cake, I'm thinking the cakes were too soft in the middle, could that be???  Is there a particular cupcake mix to use for doing this?

This is just before the cakes started falling, I think one had already fallen off and I had tried to fix if lol

The best method when doing cupcake bouquets is to use the cup method, there is the 2oz cups that a standatd size cupcake fits into. You staple the cups together and secure the into the vase with styrofoam using toothpicks

I also just made my first bouquet... I was worried about this too.. I used 3 toothpicks in a triangle pattern the bottom one was angled almost straight up towards the top of the bouquet. It held together really well. These are fun to make! Yours looked lovely.

Ah I used 3 picks too but didn't think to angle one up towards the top! Lol. And trying to do the piping on the bottom ones was a nightmare at that angle! I'll def try the cup ones, thanks for the tutorial Missy227 icon_smile.gif

Another thing you can do is make it in a box like in my pic. This is an alternative to the using the cup method as you do not need to use the cup method. To make it in a box you cut slits into your box. Then you insert a flower pot inside. Add tissue paper and a polystyrene ball. I used 2 toothpicks per cupcake but you can use more if you wish. Stick the toothpicks into the cupcakes and also stick it into the polystyrene ball. To make it look pretty I added some ribbon around the box but you don't need too :)

Sweet Tooth Cake Creations originally created the tutorial I described above. If you look on their facebook page you will find the full tutorial with pics etc. Hope it helps :)

When you are using the cups, how hard is it to get the cupcakes out of the cup when people are going to eat them?
