I made the above cupcakes for my best friend’s rehearsal dinner – red velvet cupcakes (using this red velvet cupcake recipe from Bakerella) with cream cheese frosting at the request of the couple. I also decided to give DIY cupcake wrappers a try!

Over on Intimate Weddings, they posted a fabulous tutorial as well as a free template for making these awesome cupcake wrappers out of a paper doily. (Click the links to check them out!)

The cool thing about them is that once you have the template, you can use it on any paper you want for endless cupcake wrapper possibilities.

My first attempt at DIY cupcake wrappers was for my “I’ve Got a Crush On You, Cupcake” post. I then used a paper punch to punch out little hearts. I didn’t exactly love how they turned out, but like I said, endless possibilities! It’d be fun to try a different paper in the future, or add ribbon or embellishments!

    Lovely! What a great idea – and so much versatility. The only limit is your creativity. :-)

    If I am thinking of the same party…these were absolutely fantastic.
    They were so pretty, it was a special surprise and the effort was greatly appreciated.
    They looked so professional and stayed so moist. It is a really good recipe.

    Thanks for the “How To” post.
