Make your own cupcakes cases

You might ask why would you need or want to make these when they are readily available at most stores and at reasonable prices; well for those days when you just have to make cupcakes or muffins and you are out of paper cases plus these work out a lot cheaper and don’t take long to make at all – you could even bribe your kids to help you.  My Aunty Christine showed me how to make these and her 3 and 4 year old granddaughters love helping her cut out the circles too.

You will need the following state of the art equipment:

  • Baking paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Round lid of sorts (I used the lid of a 250g Nestle cocoa tin) it is the ideal size

Step1:  Draw circles on the baking paper.

Step 2:  Cut out your circles and fold to create quarters.

Step 3:  Cut about half way down  the centre of each quarter.

Step 4:  Place into your cupcake/muffin tins.
They fold over themselves and seal perfectly when you squish them down.

Et voilà, your very own homemade cupcake case.

Spray lightly with cooking oil before filling.

  1. How clever, Mandy! It is the type of information to be stored away so that one day, when you least expect it, you’ll be glad you have it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Clever aunt you have. What a wonderful way to occupy little ones and to get needed help, not to mention the precious look on their faces when they are served the cupcakes..

Don't be shy, leave a reply. :-)
