It's my birthday but this gift is for you!

Today might be my birthday but I'm about to bestow you a great gift.  Behold, an upside down 12 ounce coffee cup is the worlds most perfect cup cake container. This yummy Magnolia cupcake was leftover from a work celebration but I had to figure out a way to get it home without handholding it all the way on the F train. Minimal icing disturbance and the cupcake looked almost perfect coming out despite rattling around in my purse completely unsupervised for a few hours.

Mind blown! 

I'm sure plenty of you had already known about this but it was completely new to me when I 'discovered' it yesterday.  I feel like caveman discovering fire. Argh!

  1. Happy Birthday darling!  Hope you have a wonderful day.  Friday birthdays are so fun.  I had no idea about this cupcake holder and it is genius.  I can't tell you how many times I have had a similar dilemma because I am always the one who wants to take home a cupcake.

  7. Happy Birthday. I use 9 oz party cups and stick a fork in the middle. It looks cute, travels well, but isn't a completely closed option like your solution. My birthday is on Monday...mhhhh cupcakes.

  25. A very Merry Un-Birthday to you! 

    And heaps of thanks for the cupcake holder idea. Seriously. I make cupcakes for the old girls at 'the home' and we're always trying to figure out a good way for them to be transported. This is perfect!
