I have been asked by my neighbour to quote on making cupcakes for her future sister in laws wedding. They want cupcakes to feed 100 and a stand that would have fresh flowers between the tiers.
I am wondering if anyone knows where I could find a tutorial that would show how to make a stand that would accomodate this number of cupcakes and flowers or if anyone knows how.
I was thinking cake dummies inbetween, but I did not know how long the flowers would last in the styrofoam, then I though flower oasis because you can dampen it, but then I worry about the water leaking and getting on the cupcakes etc.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
You should try browsing the Cupcakes forum. I believe there are a number of threads on there for stands.
I'm doing a wedding this weekend and the bride wants 110 cupcakes. I found a really nice tower for pretty cheap at www.coolcupcakes.com
It doesn't have a fresh flower area but you could rig something using this stand. The stand is really sturdy (I put it together already) and because it comes in sections - you could put the flowers on a layer or two as your putting it together and I personally think it would work out great. Hope this helps
This thread is pretty inspiring: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-631237.html
Shows a lot of homemade stands or commissioned stands. You could easliy incorporate floral foam into some of these ideas to accomodate your flowers. HTH
Thanks for all of the great ideas!
