when you make a cupcake boquet like on the home page in the how to articles, how would you go about wrapping it up. i was going to make these to send to a bake sale. i dont want to put the saran wrap directly onto the cupcakes in case it sticks. so i was looking for an idea that would work better.
I remember seeing recently either in a post or in the gallery, someone used a cake box or other box that was just the right size for the boquet.
Cambo used boxes.. but I can't find any that size without special ordering.
I use large gift basket bags... wait until the BC crusts and then put the bag on upside down (bottom of bag is over top of cupcakes) I trim the bottom of the bag cause it's too long and then tie a ribbon around it. It works for me!
both good ideas. i dont however have time to get a box. and with the gift bag, i kinda need something to where who ever is buying could see the product itself.
i thought about maybe sticking some long skewers out of the cornors and then covering in clear wrap so it would sitll be covered, but not touching the cake.
I use the clear gift bags... the ones meant for shrink wrapping around baskets.. Michales has them - 12 pack for 5 bucks. product is seen and if you use a crusting bc, the bag is light enough not to ruin. I used to put in long scewers to prop everything up.. but found they were hard to take out of the styrofoam.
Good luck finding something that works for you
i am sorry deana, i thought you were talking about a printed gift bag. never crossed my mind about the clear ones
wow cambo- those are beautifuly displayed! if i ever do more i will get some of those boxes. where did you order them from?
I ordered them from papermart.com! Thanks!
papermart, have to look for these what size are they does anyone know.
I think they were 9x9x9 pitcher boxes.
those boxes look great but how do you still keep the bouquets from shifting in there??
Try glue dots! I use them for securing things when I make gift baskets. You know - those ooey, gooey clear sticky booger like things! Some also use them for scrapbooking.

Great questions! I place the bouquets on a 9x9x9 cakeboard covered with pretty foil....as in the attached picture. The pot is hot-glued to this foil-covered board, then I use 2-way tape to hold the board steady inside the box! I've also used glue dots and those do work beautifully also! When someone orders a bouquet, depending on the color/theme, I use a complimentary colored foil or paper to wrap the cakeboard in!
Thanks so much cambo! I too was wondering on how to transport these.
