Wedding season comes faster than you know, and being that cupcakes are becoming the wedding cake version 3.0, I feel that they should be dressed as beautifully as the bride. So, I've been looking for an awesome alternative from having to buy those expensive Wilton cupcake wrappers. By the time you've bought enough for your guests you've managed to rack up about $40 in cupcake wrappers alone (for an average of 150 guests). What is the alternative? You ready? Doilies! :D Have you ever really looked at the trim of a paper doilie, It's kinda beautiful. The paper ones mimic the look of real lace or the trim of a wedding dress.
As you see by the pic I've posted above ^ a simple paper doilie can take your cupcakes from normal to couture. All you need is some time and a good pair of scizzors. Simply cut about 7 in. of trim from the doilie and wrap it around your cupcake. Close with a small piece of tape or a dot of glue to secure. They're also very cost effective, you can purchase about 36 for $3 if you know where to look. If not, Amazon.com offers them in small bulks. **OF course you could always REQUEST THEM with your next ORDER of cupcakes and I'll do all the work for ya ;) **
