I don't make cupcakes too often, but when I do, I like to share them with others. Scott and I enjoy sweets, but there is no reason we need to keep all 24 cupcakes for ourselves!
So when I made some funfetti cupcakes with green swirly icing on Friday, I also discovered an easy way to transport them. I don't have one of those fancy carriers, but I only needed to wrap up a couple to give to Scott's cousin's family and a few for Scott's immediate family. I dug through the cabinets and thought about using saran wrap and toothpicks to keep the wrap away from the icing... but then I came across some clear plastic cups.
By placing one cupcake in each cup, I was able to separate them from one another and protect the icing from the plastic bag. Of course, to remove them, you have to be okay with possibly messing up the icing a bit... or you can just eat the cupcake straight out of the cup with a fork (especially since I didn't use paper liners).
It's not perfect, but in a pinch, this little solution worked for me! Anyone else have a cool baking tip to share?
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It was absolutely gorgeous here... and now that I'm officially on spring break, it was so great to relax, celebrate St. Patrick's Day, sit on our porch, sleep in, catch up with family and friends, and not have homework hanging over my head. Sunshine and warm temps make me happy!
