I compulsively buy cupcake liners. I have an entire box of them in my kitchen. You never know when you are going to need a purple polka-dot liner, or Wall-E, and Halloween will definitely be here before you know it. I bought some beautiful folded cupcake liners a few months ago. They are sort of expensive (you can purchase some online here) but I like how they add elegance to the cupcake without any additional work.
Icing the cupcakes was more of a challenge than it usually is, but still doable! :)
I'm making the cupcakes for a wedding of two people from camp in about a month, and I wanted to show them all the amazing things that one can do with cupcakes. I think hundreds of cupcakes in the pleated baking cups would be overwhelming. What do you think?
