I also would like to know about getting the cupcakes out of the cups. You did a great job on this. It is beautiful.

on

Thank you, everyone for the lovely comments...Dizzymaiden thank you I thought the same thing, oh well gotta get working on those roses he he he! ;0)

on

These are really beautiful! You did a fantastic job and I love how RED they are! Also curious...how in the world do folks get the cupcakes out of the cups without getting icing all over their fingers?

on

I'm suspecting that no one has a solution of how to get the cupcakes out without getting on the fingers. if someone gave me this bouquet, I would just wait till I was alone then suck each cupcake out in private!...and love every last one of them. how decadent is that! Thank you Dayyi, this is a perfect tutorial on how to make a beautiful presentation (and I love your roses just as they are)

on

Dayyl - This is an AWESOME tutorial! I love the step by step pictures. You've now given me some beautiful birthday presents, teachers presents, Mothers day & just for the heck of it presents! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! And by the way, there is nothing wrong with your roses!!!! In my option, they are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! Fantastic job all the way around!

on

To get them out, couldn't you just squeeze the bottom of a cup to kind of force ithe cupcake to push up? And then you could grab it at it's sides? It works in my head,but I don't know in reality if it would work!

on

This is a great tutorial, and your roses are lovely! I think you could just take a knife or butter knife even and slide down the inside of the cup and pop it up out of the cup.

on

I've got an idea! What about putting a long piece of ribbon in each cup, so there's some on each side hanging out, then put the cupcakes in the cups & ice them. It would make the bouquet even prettier with ribbons in it, and then you could pull the strings to get them out, mess-free! ♥

Huh? Huh?? I know, I know, genius, right?! XD

on

What a great idea LOVE IT!!! Thank you for sharing and to the comment about your roses never mind it, you did excellent. The purpose here was to share your genius idea about a new and clever way to display cupcake bouquets and not on how to make roses.

Thanks again for sharing! =)

on

You know, the ribbon idea may be a genius idea! When I saw them, the first thing I wondered was how to get them out, but I thought just use a fork or a butter knife to pry it out. The ribbon would work though!

And I thought the comment on the roses needing work was rude and uncalled for. I don't see a think wrong with them, I actually clicked on the tutorial to see what tip was used because I think they look great.

on

I think this is a wonderful idea! And your roses look AMAZING! I have been trying to think of something that is pretty, quick, and would express how much I love and appreciate my daughters and daughters-in-law and this fits the bill perfectly!!!! It even looks easy to transport...and after all who doesn't want roses delivered to you at your job?!?!?!?! heehee Thanks so much for sharing!

on

Also, what if you cut notches in the cups like the finger inserts in the cupcake boxes, I don't know if they'd be visable or sharp, but if it worked it would provide a cleaner way to grab the cupcakes...

on

Great Job, Thanks for showing us how to do this, I was going to comment about the roses comment, but I was thought if you don't have anything nice to say, don;t say it at all. Again thank you I appreciate the step by step.

on

Great job and very helpful tutorial. I agree with Dizzymaiden, gr8_seamstress, was your editoral comment necessary?

on

Thank you everyone for the lovely comments, the cake board is a 12" made by wilton gotta love my 50% off coupons from michaels! And the tip used was the 1M also by wilton. ;0)

on

This was a great tutorial, thank you! And so pretty! I was asked to donate something for a school fundraiser and now that I have seen this, I will make a couple of these to donate! So much easier and less expensive than a cake and just as pretty! Thanks again.

on

It is beautiful, I tried to make it and it was a lot of fun. What tip did you use for the roses. Mine were not as nice, of course lol.

on

HI all. I was inspired. I was able to get some 3 1/4 oz cups which fits the cupcake liner perfectly (not as deep as the 4 oz). from Smart and Final. Smart and Final also carries 4 oz cups. Total arrangement was 10" in diameter. The staples broke the plastic however, tape worked fine. Now, I'm going to bake some cupcakes.

on

Your tutorial is wonderful. These make great thank you gifts,I have always made the 19 cup version, but there has been times where 19 is too many, this smaller version looks really nice, and so does your roses! ; )

on

I like this method way better than the other one.. The cupcakes look more secured.. no risk of falling off and probably can withstand transporting better..

on

I did something similar last year for our school cake walk. Instead of the plastic cups, I only had 5 oz. paper cups on hand, and they worked quite well. Stapled easily, and while not quite as "round" as this bouquet, they were a hit! Thanks for posting such a great series of photos to make it easy to follow!

on

I am trying to save this as a favorite but can't get it to work. Anyone else having this problem? Thanks

on

That is really neat!! Thanks ever so much for sharing this with us!! I have never seen anything like it before and will definitely be doing it!! I say just get a fork and eat the cupcake out of the cup, that would be how I would solve getting the cupcake out! Love it!! Great job!! Too bad they don't have a like button on here like they do on Facebook so I can like some of the comments that are made on here!! Or press a dislike button like the rude comment that someone made earlier about you working on your roses!! She did a wonderful job and shared something really neat with us!! Have a blessed day to all the wonderful bakers who make such beautiful art that taste great and make the world happy!! :D

on

Inspiring! Great job, can't wait to try this soon! So happy to always be learning from each other in a safe, and friendly environment. *:)

on

Love your tutorial!! It actually has a wedding bouquet effect. This is a quick and easy go to gift for the person who has evertything. Love it.. love it... love it I can't wait to try it. I would think that a skewer or even a fork or knife will pry the cakes out easily without getting you fingers dirty, Thanks for sharing and you did a "FANTASTIC JOB..... BE BLESSED!.

on

The ribbon is a great idea but I would staple one end of the ribbon to the inner rim of the cups. This way, when you tug at the free end, the cake will pop up with the stapled end of the ribbon giving the right amount of tautness to elevate the cuppie upwards. Just a thought. This is a beautiful bouquet by the way and I wish i know how to pipe such roses as mine ends up more like swirls then petals.

on

Rustidog...great idea about stapling the ribbon so it acts like a lift! I can't wait to try this for my daughter's 18th birthday party this Saturday! Thanks, guys!

on

Just found these! How lovely!! I've been looking for something different for a graduation event for girls. This will work perfectly....the roses are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

on

why not fill the cups with tissue paper and then insert the cakes into the cups? then you can pull the tissue paper with the cake :-) yoiu could use green for a leaf effect or a contrast colour to your icing xx im making one of these for my sons reception class teacher as a thank you and goodbye gift as she is off to a new school x

on

Great job... I love it. I did a rose bouquet last year for my friends baby shower using a styrofoam ball and it came out beautiful but for some reason the buttercream frosting fell right off the cupcakes Lol....I had to take the whole thing apart. I realized the next time my buttercream had to be a little more stiffer...trail and error thats how you learn.

on

Totally amazed by this, thank you so much for sharing this simple and yet awesome tutorial, and loved your roses too wish mine looks like that when I make them lol.... And pls keep doing more tutorials :)

Quick idea to get the cupcakes out... punch a finger sized hole in the bottom of each cup (before filling) and then 'push' them out.  ??

I think the roses are beautiful and would be thrilled to have such a boquet.  And thanks so much for sharing!

on

I think they look beautiful.. I was also thinking of how you could get them out. You can't put a hole in the bottom- the cups are glued to the cake board. I was thinking if yo stuffed each cup with green tissue paper then each cupcake would sit up above the cup rim. then use green cupcake liners to look more like "stems" so it wouldn't matter if you saw them. fill in the gaps with more green tissue paper so it all blends in. 

on

I would be very careful of using tissue paper or ribbon before checking that it is food grade.  That means there are no dangerous dyes  or other materials that might contaminate your product and make folks get sick instead of experiencing happiness from this wonderful creation.  Thanks so much for sharing.  I really liked the ribbon idea but maybe you could use thin strips of wax paper  for pull ups.

on

I do these on top of a glass vase. I hot glue a styrofoam ball on top and cover it with cling wrap. I use the longer cocktail toothpicks and place the cupcakes onto them. I fill the gaps with tissue. I gave them for Mother's Day with huge success. As for food safety, we are a nation that will eat mystery meat dogs off of sticks picked up off the ground when camping and think nothing of it.  Hahahaha! I don't consider toothpicks with tissue between crusting buttercream cupcakes harmful personally. And the tissue I do have says non-toxic on the package. But any suggestions of other filling material considered food safe would be great!

on

Non-toxic is fine to use outside the cupcake wrapper. It's like those metallic dragees - you're allowed to use them as long as the customer is instructed to remove them prior to eating... sure, we ALL take them off, right?! NOT!

on

Thank you for sharing!.  To all...try using  Tip #2D, a Wilton tip.  It also makes a beautiful rose without the straight lines that Tip 1M makes.  Very difficult to get a true red color in icing, these are beautiful.  And, bye-the-way... Many of my real roses don't look like roses!
