Cupcakes have quickly become the favorite treat for every age, and they are the hottest trend everywhere from birthday parties to weddings.
You have probably seen the beautiful and artistically decorated treats on television or in your favorite foodie magazine and wanted to try out these petite sweets for your own occasion. Like many of us, you may wonder if you have the time or talent to make these beautiful and trendy sweets. Luckily, if you are looking to make a fun treat for your next gathering, there is a simple trick to make your cupcakes the stars of any party!
One of the simplest ways to up the WOW factor of your cupcakes is to use decorative cupcake wrappers.
Cupcake wrappers are paper wrappers that go around the cupcake, instantly transforming a cupcake into a bakery-worthy treat. Cupcake papers or cupcake liners are placed in the tray and cupcakes are baked in them whereas wrappers are decorative papers that can be placed over a liner or paper. Wrappers are available in a wide variety of designs for every occasion- birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, baptisms, graduation, and anything else you can think of!
For all you busy moms on the go, wrappers are the perfect way to send an awww-inspiring homemade treat to your child's next classroom party or bake. Simply bake your favorite cupcake as you always have - feel free to experiment with flavors, fillings, and frostings, or just make a simple cake from a pre-made mix. Then, top the cupcake with frosting and a few sprinkles, and slide the cupcake into the wrapper.
Within less time than it takes to find your child's homework in the morning, you have a treat that will be a surefire hit!
Decorative wrappers can make cupcake decorating for a party easier than ever! After you have picked out your favorite wrapper design, arrange cupcakes in wrappers on a plate or platter, or look into the newest bakery-inspired trend - the cupcake tree! Place the cupcakes on the table, and you have an instant centerpiece. Then, take your left over wrappers and place candles inside them along the table for a coordinated look.
For a baby shower or wedding shower, try placing cupcakes in their decorative wrappers in a see-through box or bag and sending them home as a thank-you gift!
Decorative wrappers are so versatile that you can even use them for other treats. Fill wrappers with candy, popcorn, or other little snacks, and you will be sure to get lots of compliments on your creativity.
For lots of people it is easier to wrap cupcakes than to frost cupcakes. Use your imagination and try making cupcake cosies. It is easy to wrap your cupcakes in these pieces of fabric.
No matter if you are a novice baker or a top chef, you will find that cupcake wrappers are a fun addition to your baking repertoire. Cupcake wrappers are simply the easiest way to make anyone into a cake designer, and all for just a few cents per cupcake! Follow these suggestions and start enjoying your new reputation as the hottest decorator on the block!
