keep a riboon on a cupcake like this? everytime i try the ribbon wants to slide down the wrapper since cupcakes are wider at top than at the base. is there a different cupcake pan i could use that has straight wall sides instead of them being angled?



OH! another question: is there a cupcake size between a standard and jumbo?

I imagine just a tiny dot of hot glue would hold it in place?

That was the first thought that came to my mind also or a small dab of buttercream might work as well icon_biggrin.gif K'ly

I use large paper "nut cups" (white pleated paper cups) for my cupcakes. They are sturdier, and they have straight sides, and i also do not need cupcake pans to bake them in.

i'd thought about hot glue but didn't think it would solve the problem of the ribbon slipping down. plus, i wasn't sure if i put the hot glue on the wrapper itself that it wouldn't seep through to the cupcake.

i have used the nut cups as well but i don't think they look as nice but if a ribbon is around them, it probably wouldn't matter.
