I need some help. I love making cupcake bouquets, but I am having trouble with the cupcakes falling off after I have put the icing on. I am using a 6" pot and a 6" styrofoam ball. I am holding them on with popsicle sticks. But the bottom row tend to fall off once iced!

Any suggestions??? I like to put 15 cupcakes, but it seems to work better with 12.

Any help would be appreciated!

I can't help here because I have the same trouble. I have followed Cambo's instructions to use a 4" pot and 4" styro ball and can only get about 7 cupcakes on, not the quantity that she's using.

I don't know if it's the size of my cupcakes ( they are standard sized 2 ounces each)

or if they are attaced not only by the sticks but with a dab of buttercream.

I wanted to also have a dozen on the bouquet, so if anyone steps in with an alternative solution

I'm all ears too.
