I was up late trying to quickly finish cupcakes for my friend’s Mint, Pink & Gold Baby Shower earlier this week. I had just designed and printed out cupcake wrappers and started to cut out the first wrap. I taped the wrap onto the cupcake and thought that it was going to take way too much time for me to finish the rest of them. I looked over at my dining room table and saw that I still had some of the gold polka dotted tissue paper laying there. Whether or not this idea is completely original, I had to try it out. I cut down the tissue paper to fit the cupcake, stuck it into a plastic cup and it looked cute and most importantly, it was going to save me lots of time!
Here’s how I did it:
I cut down my tissue paper to a 5×5 square (sizes will vary by cupcake).
Gather the sides of the tissue paper and wrap it around the cupcake.
Stick your cupcake and tissue paper wrap into the cup.
Ice your cupcake, making sure the icing doesn’t touch the tissue paper.
Last, but not least, insert the cupcake into a candy bag and wrap it with ribbon or baker’s twine and it’s ready to be used at your next party! These were super easy and such a great time saver! Don’t be surprised if you see me using these more than once!
