I have a friend getting married next August and she wants to do rose cupcake bouquet centerpieces for her tables because she and her fiance aren't into cake or many desserts for that matter. It will be in upstate NY so the weather has the potential of being anywhere between 70-90 degrees with beating sun or a total torrential downpour. In case of the heat, would it be practical to do the centerpieces? Is there a way to do them that they won't melt all over the place within the first half-hour? I don't want her or me (since I'm the baker/decorator) to waste a bunch of time and money if it's not do-able. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Potential cake disaster
Welcome to cheftalk Nik,
I have one question,
As centerpieces ? Yes, for early evening but not all day in the sun. Surely there are plenty of classy centerpieces that can be made , relatively inexpensive, that can put on the tables for the afternoon and then the cupcake stands switched over at dinner .....
Then the afternoon center pieces can be given out as gifts to family or close friends towards the end of the night.
Just my opinion. there are no other ideas ?
