Weeks ago I was scanning eBay and began to notice sellers were offering these cute cupcake baking cups with teapots on them. Most wanted $4 or $5, plus shipping, and although I thought these were awfully cute I couldn't justify spending that much on throwaway cupcake papers.
But then Christine alerted me (in a blog comment) to the fact that these are actually available at Michaels. When I saw they were $1.99, I happily purchased two of the 75-count packages. I figured that was enough, because by the time I've made 150 of these I will be tired of them.
But here's my question: Why are the baking cup designers putting the *cute* part of the design on the bottom? I mean, sure, I'll know it's there and all, but if I get to the party, do I tell everyone to please turn their cupcakes upside down ("Watch those sprinkles, everyone!") and admire the bottom? Have they always made them this way and I'm just now noticing? But shoot, they were just $1.99, so I figured I'd sort all that out later!
