You know when an idea hits you that seems so ingenious, no one could ever have thought of it before? I would like to thank Google for always reminding me I am actually probably 2 years late in my thoughts and ideas. What I am posting about today is in no way original, except I made mine for muffins – ha! Eat that Google [with a pretty doily wrapper round it].
I am a lover of traditional English decor and afternoon tea and doilies remind me of that and I love the pastel and patterned doilies you can now buy everywhere. If you are serving an afternoon tea or just want to pretty up your cupcakes/muffins or use up your doilies, this is a really simple way to create your own cases/wrappers.
The muffins? Shop bought of course – so they already come with a soggy looking wrapper, but this is perfect as it gives something for the doily wrapper to stand against.
- Use patterned/coloured doilies if you have a theme/want to brighten your life up a bit
- If you want to add a subtle colour to your wrap – put your cakes/muffins in a coloured case first and wrap the doily round
- Doilies can be coloured with food colouring, watered down in a spray bottle. Cover in the colour and leave to dry!
