Cereal box cupcake holder

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.
