I don’t know about you but I never seem to buy the right number of cupcake liners for when I’m baking. I always end up with too many. It’s like the hot dog and bun conundrum where liners aren’t sold in the same units as the number of cupcakes people generally bake them. With all the different patterns available to customize your cupcakes for holidays or events, it’s easy for the paper or foil liners to accumulate in the cabinet. Luckily, there are many other options for how to use those leftover liners, ranging from kids’ crafts to useful tricks. Read the rest of this entry »

Hello there sweeties! I am sad to say but this may be my last post here on All Things Cupcake. I have loved working here at ATC but we are currently having some issues and I may not be on the payroll anymore. So after almost 4 years here, I am going to do what I always wanted to do- I am going to make a post about my own cupcake stuff in my Etsy shop! It is called StayHomeCupcake and it is full sweets and treats. I have a passion for crafts and sweet crafts are my utmost love!
I love using a little clipart to brighten up my computer projects and what could be more perfect than cupcake clipart? These totally sweet sets are available from Etsy seller, Dream Like Magic. Their shop is filled with over 200 graphic designs sets to be used for cards, invitations, Facebook covers, scrapbooking, stickers and Etsy banners. I bought a banner from them a few years ago for my own Etsy shop (Stay Home Cupcake) and I could not be happier with it. The only problem now is that Dream Like Magic has so many new choices, I may have to buy an update!
Over the years I have seen lots of different cupcake liner flower tutorials. The instructions for these DIY cupcake liner flowers, which involve spray painting the liners, come from The Sweetest Occasion. I’m not sure about the messy look of these flowers on the cake, I think instead I would use liners with a pattern on them. What do you think? Does the crinkled gold flower work for you?

Have you ever been on your way out the door and had the host of a party try to give you a cupcake to take home but you have nowhere to put the cupcake? I know it’s happened to me before where you can’t put the cupcake on a plate and it will get all over a napkin. I had never thought of cutting the top of a cup to make a cupcake holder. Just follow the steps on this image and you have a quick recycled gobelet cup cupcake holder!
