Wilton Color Cups

By on Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

You slave all day to make the perfect chocolate cupcakes, and then when they come out of the oven, your white wrappers have turned to an unappetizing shade of brown. Or worse, you spend a bunch of money on Elmo cupcake wrappers for your kid’s birthday party, but when they come out of the oven, you can’t see Elmo. All you can see is the color of the cupcake. Because of these tragedies, I’ve been using foil cupcake wrappers for any cupcakes that will leave the house. And I’ve just discovered a pretty snazzy version of foil wrappers–Wilton Color Cups. There are many cool patterns to choose from, and they work! The wrappers come out of the oven just as pretty as they went in. I tested them out!

Potty Training Cupcakes

People have been stamping cupcakes on undies for a while now, but these cuties might just take the cake. I really wish I knew someone who was potty training so I could buy these for them! Unfortunately, the potty training boys of the world have footballs on their training pants, but the girls are in luck. Well done, Gerber, well done.
