Cupcake Kit

Jayden has a real think for cupcakes lately and I thought it would be fun to put together a cupcake kit for him. Gathering supplies wasn't hard, but packaging them up was another story. I couldn't find a box that would work so I ended up cutting some cardboard we had laying around into the box I wanted. That included cutting out the "window" in the front of the box so I could tape some clear cellophane on.

I actually purchased the cellophane ages ago by accident. I know it's a weird accident to make, but I honestly thought I'd grabbed a package of silver wrapping paper. Imagine the shock I had when I got home, but it's come in very handy for several projects ever since. The cupcake on the front of the box isn't too great looking in the photo, but once the glue finished drying it was much nicer.

Here's the contents that are in his box which were obtained from a variety of places. Believe it or not the little wooden spoon cost me the most money! There are measuring spoons & measuring cups, an egg timer, silicone spatula, basting brush, wooden spoon, various cupcake papers, sprinkles in varying colors, & edible Thomas train images. I'm not sure you can see the later because they are under the sprinkles. I debated getting a cute set of silicone muffin cups, some little bug shaped ones, Jayden had spotted in town earlier this week, but it completely slipped my mind when I picked up the colored ones. Hopefully he won't mind too much. I figured the whole kit will go really well with his nifty cookbook.
