I made my first cupcake bouques for school bake sale.
Problem #1 The cupcake papers kept pulling off the cup cakes after I assembled them.

#2 Also some of the cakes started tearing in half from the toothpicks I guess. Is there any better type cake to make these from (I used yellow boxed) if is It just me?

#3 The school was only 1 mile and they managed to fall over at least 3 times before got there. I had to make 1 bouque out of the 2 that I made salvaging what I could. Aside from assembling them on site(which I couldnt do) is there a magical way to transport ssomething like that? They were in flower pots.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

I am no expert, but I think your pot is way too small for the bouquet. For that sized pot, I would have used mini cupcakes. Your bouquet appears VERY top heavy, due to the cupcakes being so large in comparison to your container. Did you use more than one toothpick to mount each cupcake? I would have used at least two. I am not sure about the liners.. hmmm. Your bouquet is still very pretty I love the color!!!!
