One more shopping report and then I'll move on to another topic, OK? But when I found these *gorgeous* miniature cupcake wrappers at a Marietta T.J. Maxx on Saturday (just $2.99 for 25), I knew I had to tell you about them! I found only one package in this design, but I will definitely be looking for more when I visit other T.J. Maxx stores in the weeks ahead.
The package says you can bake these on a flat oven tray and no muffin pan is needed. Aren't they pretty? At first I thought I would save these until next Valentine's Day, or spring, but then I realized there are indeed some red and green colors in this design, so these just may wind up in some Christmas treats this year!
You can see from the rim on the bottom that these would indeed stand on a pan without wobbling over like normal, thin paper cupcake cups. I've called these "miniature" size, but really they're about 1-3/4 inches tall and 2-1/4 inches in diameter, which makes them more of a "medium" size. Smaller than a regular cupcake, bigger than a mini-cupcake, prettier than both!
And on a final shopping-related note, I wanted to mention that JoAnn had these silver ornaments for 40 percent off when I was in there Saturday! Also, HomeGoods had the Spode and Portmeirion teapot and teacup ornaments out in case some of you are looking for them. Happy shopping!
