Good morning! It is the start of a new week and the start to a week full of easy holiday tips and ideas here at Turnstyle Vogue. Tips and ideas that might just make your entertaining a little easier or add an extra touch to what you do. Be sure to check in each day and see what is new – trust me, it will all be simple.
Because simple is good. Right?
For today, I have question for you:
Are you a cupcake…
Do you share them?
If so, here is a quick and easy tip, courtesy of an old cookbook of mine, to make your own carrier so they stay untouched and looking mighty fine upon their arrival at your next gathering.
I know. I know. You already have a cupcake carrier. Perhaps Tupperware or something similar.
But if you don’t, or have more than the standard 12 or 24 cupcakes they usually hold, then this is the perfect solution.
Just dig out some of those gift boxes you saved from Christmas last year and you are halfway there.
Draw some circles the size of your cupcake and cut cross-sections in each circle like this:
Then pop in your cupcakes and you are good to go!
If you have the time to prepare some in advance, you can always dress them up with some gift wrap – or use a decorative box rather than a solid white one.
Another bonus is that you can easily store them in the refrigerator directly in the box. Just poke some toothpicks in the top of each cupcake and gently lay plastic wrap over and around to keep them fresh, while keeping the wrap from touching the frosting.
No excuses now.
