Cupcake Express Review and Giveaway!

Cupcake Express is an etsy shop that specializes in cupcake wrappers and printable party supplies. The cupcake wrappers are very stylish and fit around a standard baked cupcake (she also sells wrappers for mini cupcakes). They come in a huge variety of colors and patterns and are very easy to assemble.

The printable party supplies can be printed on your own color printer and once she emails you the file you can print it. They currently offer two complete party packages the Paris Collection and the Train Birthday Colllection, they also carry a few other designs. Printable supplies include:

I had the opportunity to try two sets of wrappers the pink damask and the Hot Pink Lime Green Orange Shebert Wrappers. I love these wrappers because they are bright and makes me think about the warm weather!

Hot Pink Orange Lime Green Wrappers
My daughter loves pink so I decided to use the pink for her birthday cupcakes. I baked the cupcakes in the oven and then once they cooled I took them out of the cupcake pan and placed them in the wrappers. Then I decorated them after placing them in wrappers. I have to admit I don't normally use store bought frosting, but I decided to take the easy route and just buy a can for her cupcakes.

Lt Pink Damask Wrappers


Since I normally don't use it I had a harder time with the frosting, but the wrappers I think took away from the less than perfect icing job! I really enjoyed using these cupcake wrappers. I had never used wrappers before on cupcakes but they were easy and really fun and I think that they are a huge imporvement over cupcaker liners!
