Hello, I am wondering if someone would be able to tell me what size board to put this cupcake bouquet on?
The picture did not come through :( How many cuppies do you need to make your design?
This time I do see the picture. It looks to be a 1/2 sheet board. Only 19 cuppies then the stems piped right on the board
yes probably -- and a method for you be able to tell for yourself is to lay out cupcake wrappers and eyeball the rest
but you also might want to use two boards so it doesn't flex -- or use thicker foam core board -- just depends on the weight of the cupcakes
Would you happen to know what is the board covered with?
no I don’t know but it could be freezer wrapping paper or parchment —gift wrapping paper is not food safe neither is florist foil so a lot of us do use it but extra caution has to taken that the food is protected from it — so just using food safe paper is easier/better —
I always imagine someone not even involved with the party coming in afterwards to pick up a party goer or a banquet worker — they’re maybe carrying their baby in to wait a minute and maybe they sit down momentarily to wait while their loved one gets their things and gives the baby a swipe of icing from the border of the cake plate — it ALL needs to be healthy for everyone — know what I mean —
so be careful
When I cover my boards, I use wrapping paper, but I then cover the wrapping paper with saran wrap. I pull it as taut as I can and tape it down on the underside.
From the looks of the covering in the p ic I think it is either parchment OR butcher's/freezer wrap paper OR a plastic table cover. I have used all of those to cover boards.
I've also used wrapping paper, covered with plastic wrap and plastic table clothes, which I didn't like. Most commonly, I cover my board with fondant. Freezer paper sounds like a good idea too.
It looks to me like butchers paper too. I bought contact paper.
I will post finished work later.
I don’t think that’s food safe:(
I looked it up and this brand is made by Duck and it is food safe. The brand Con-tact is not though.
Sorry I am in able to show a picture of the finished work because the customer came to pick up her cupcakes early and I didn't get a picture.
Your contact paper is pretty and I am sure it made a beautiful board.
