I was thinking about cake decorating & cupcake decorating recently. I have a huge respect for cake decorators (professional or hobbyists). I want to decorate cakes for a hobby one day when I have more time. Until then, a quick and easy way to decorate cupcakes (essentially tiny cakes) is to use cupcake wrappers.
There are a few cupcake templates online. With these templates, you can use the template to cut out cupcake wrappers from decorative card stock or scrapbook paper or print them directly onto white card stock and use my designs.
The size is for the standard cupcake size.
*Cupcakes in their paper cups they were baked in
*Card stock and/or scrapbook paper
*tape or hot glue
Step 1: Print the wrappers onto card stock
Step 2: Cut out the wrappers along the outside lines.
Step 3: Attach the two ends, slightly overlapped, with tape or hot glue.
( I prefer tape just because glue around food makes me nervous)
