Stop. Cupcake Time!!

One of my sisters friends ordered 2 dozen cupcakes from me for her husbands 40th birthday. Just plain vanilla, 12 with chocolate icing, 12 with vanilla icing, all finished off with a slice of mars bar. $50 for 2 dozen, which in my opinion is quite good, because generally cupcakes retail for around $80+ for 2 dozen.

I used Magnolia's vanilla cupcake recipe. I've only made it once before, and it was while I was in England with very limited supplies, but I'm happy to say that the recipe said it would make 24, it did make 24 and I needed exactly 24. Win win!! I am always hesitant about giving people cakes/food without tasting it myself to make sure that it's ok, but the smell that came out of the box when I opened them this morning to ice them was divine so I'm confidant that they'll taste good too.

Where did you get your cupcake boxes from?? Did you buy them individually or bulk??

Cake Deco Central, you don't have to buy in bulk. I bought 5 boxes and 5 inserts. I think the boxes were $1 and something, and the inserts were maybe 90c? They have it on their website though. I'm so happy with their cupcake liners too, I've been searching for white cupcake liners that go see through when you bake in them....found em!!
