A few nights before I hosted my garden party I was over at a girlfriends for a little birthday celebration. As I left to walk back to my house, she handed me a cupcake to take home in a red disposable cup (kind of synonymous with a frat party). It was cute, funny, and also – genius. I sat on the couch that night watching TV, eating the cupcake out of the cup. It wasn’t messy and the cake was contained.
First, I started with a cake in a box. (I used Duncan Hines Confetti Mix)
Here’s a little trick – I add extra sprinkles to it, so it’s extra colourful.
I don’t stir it too much, so it doesn’t get too murky, as the sprinkles settle
Make mini cupcakes – For added measure, I sprinkle extra on top of the mini cupcakes
When baked, you’ll have sweet little cupcakes like so…
From the dollar store, get some of the disposable wine glasses. Place a mini cupcake in – I found I liked it when they went in upside down. Next comes the icing.
Once you have your piping bag full of icing you’re ready to go!
