I made some cupcakes for the girls who work in the day care at my local YMCA. They watch my 6 month old son almost every day of the week while I work out, and do an amazing job! One morning before heading to the Y. I woke up early and baked them some cupcakes.
After the cupcakes were done, cooled and frosted, I scrambled around the house to find a box to bring them in. I did not want to bring them on something I would need back. I could not find a gift box anywhere!
I used my resourceful instincts and turned a cereal box into my cupcake box!
I just happened to have one of those cereal boxes with almost no cereal left in my pantry.
I cut out the center of the cereal box and used packing tape to shut the top of the cereal box. I then covered the box with tin foil.
Easy. This was a 5 minute project. I literally did this while my baby was in his carrier as we ran out the door.
I covered this with plastic wrap. Maybe I will work on making this concept cute in a later post.
