Hi everyone! I sure hope you’ve had a nice Christmas and are enjoying your holidays! I’ve been spending time with my family playing games, cooking together and taking it easy. It’s been great!
Today, I cranked up my Silhouette Cameo to make some fast cupcake wrappers from Lettering Delights for these yummy Cherry Cream Cheese Tarts I made. They are delicious and not too difficult to make. YAY to that! Here’s a link to the tarts recipe.
To make this fast, I printed the wrappers on my printer and then cut them out with the Cameo.
Aren’t these pretty? They’re from the Sweet Peeps Cupcake Wrappers collection. You get 10 different patterns. Several are Easter and Spring related but I think the others work year round. (I don’t think these are offered anymore, sad.) Want something different? Check out these cupcake wrappers for a ton of options!
I mixed up the batter and poured it into a wrapper lined muffin tin that had vanilla wafers in the bottom of each one. You know why my wafers look so weird? I made them myself!
I told you our family’s been cooking a lot. I guess I have the cooking bug because instead of running to the grocery store for a box of ‘Nilla wafers, I used this recipe and made my own.
Under each of those batter filled cups is one of my homemade vanilla wafers!
I overfilled these because I refuse to follow certain recipe directions so that I can maintain my rebel status. LOL!
This is sort of the best recipe in the world because you WANT it to CAVE IN when it comes out of the oven. Oh, sweet! As it cools, it creates the perfect place for you to add some pie filling or fresh fruit…sweet cream…a wad of cash…whatever. I used cherry pie filling because it’s awesome.
So…well..hmmm…I made this and it looks beautiful. Just like…it should be on a picnic table in the middle of summer just waiting for the rocket’s red glare and the bombs bursting in air, right? Yeah. It’s December. Consider your cupcake wrapper color choices…OR…do what I did and make new wrappers for it!
Whew. These pink cupcake wrappers saved the day…actually…I could go for some BBQ, fireworks and an outdoor picnic…however…it DID just start snowing. LOL! Hey, when the 4th of July rolls around you better remind me to make these! 😉
