Wow!

If only you'd posted this a day earlier, but in a couple of hours we're going to a village fête, and Kitewife is taking cupcakes, but we haven't got time to go shopping for the dome and cups.

Awh I love this, nice job. I read you stapled them together but I'm just curious as to how the cups stayed in the pot securely?
Easy and creative.

Great!! Only thing missing is showing the icing tip that you used (for us amateurs).
