Bake Sale!!!

Earlier this week, my son's school held a bake sale to raise money for a new playground, in addition to their book fair that was also going on.  I, of course, said that I would definitely make brownies and cupcakes for the bake sale.  Those are easy to make, and not an all day thing.  Um yeah.....  About that all day thing!  I went to the store the day that they were due, and found cupcake wrappers (for lack of the real word!) where you can just place the wrappers/inserts???  on a baking sheet and fill them!  No muffin tins needed!  Whoo hooo!  You know I was able to cut my baking time in half just by doing that?!  I was able to fit 24 to 28 cups on one baking sheet!  Awesome!!!!  They were medium sized, not too big, not too small.  Since they were that size, I wanted to make something special and pretty and make people WANT to buy them!  I remembered that Jen del Muro had created a Poppin' Petals Treat Trio a while ago, and after purchasing the template from My Favorite Things, I used my Cricut and cut out 18 boxes.  I didn't do the individual boxes, WAY too much work for cupcakes!  And for this little bake sale!

These are the finished cupcakes in their holders and bagged up individually for sale!
