Cupcake Crazed!

Not only do I LoVe eating cupcakes, but I also LoVe baking them!  Sometimes I think one of the reasons I wanted to be a mom so badly was so that I could make cupcakes for my kids to bring in to school on holidays!  When I taught 1st grade I found any and every excuse to bake cupcakes for my kiddies including cupcakes with blue icing and little baseball gloves on them to tell the class I was having a baby boy when I was pregnant with Nicholas!  With all this cupcake baking comes quite a HUGE collection of cupcake liners.  I’m starting to think that buying cupcake liners is somewhat of a mini-obsession for me.  Especially after doing this post.  I have now come to the realization that I can throw a baby shower, baptism, Superbowl bash, dinosaur dig, princess tea, and that doesn’t include your general calendar holidays!  My cabinet was overflowing and I couldn’t figure out a good system for storing the many, many, MaNy liners that I had, but I knew that something had to give or the next time I went to bake cupcakes they were all going to come crashing down and I was going to have a big mess to clean up.  I looked around for containers at the dollar stores, but there really wasn’t anything that I thought would work so I went through things I had at home.  While drinking Seltzer the other night it occurred to me that the bottle was the exact size to hold the liners and it was the perfect height to fit in my cabinet.  We drink Seltzer by the case in our house so all I had to do was take a few out of recycling and soak off the labels.  Now I have the perfect system for organizing and storing my cupcake liners, tons of new-found cabinet space, and it didn’t cost me a dime!
