Cupcake Swirl

Oh boy! Oh boy! I'm bursting with new cupcake knowledge that I must impart! Last fall I mentioned to my sister-in-law, Melissa, that I wanted dark brown cupcake liners, but I couldn't find them anywhere. Then she drew my name for Christmas, and--lucky me--she gifted me with (among other things) a box of beautiful brown liners. I just used my last one and asked Melissa where she'd gotten them.

Friends! Behold, CupcakeSwirl! I am in love. This site has everything you've ever dreamed of for making beautiful cupcakes. You can browse around for yourself, but let me point out my favorite features.

1. A cupcake decorating kit. A few weeks ago, when I'd been commissioned for my first cupcake sale, I decided it was time to trade in the Ziploc bag for a decent pastry bag and tip. I ran all over town to find the right tip--a nice big fat one for large swirls. But you don't have to look all over--just get the kit from cupcake swirl! As far as I'm concerned, the 2 two tips she includes in the kit are all you need for great cupcakes.

2. Cupcake liners galore! I've seriously never seen such selection. I. want. them. ALL. Mini, standard, jumbo. Dark brown, polka dot, leopard print... You will love them! And they're a great price, too.

Happy cupcaking!

YAY! I wondered how you got that thick swirl going on with your cupcakes. Now I know! And nothing makes a cupcake cuter than a fancy shmancy liner! :) Fun, fun, FUN!

If you're Utah folk, you can get those liners at Orson Gygi, too.
