How To Make Cupcakes Meri Meri

by Anne Paddock

Most cupcake bakers have two goals: to use the freshest and finest ingredients available to make the most delicious treats but there are also the bakers that have a third goal:  to make their cupcakes especially pleasing to the eye by using liners and decorations. Presentation and packaging are very important and for the novice home baker, there is a company that provides a variety of unique baking products designed to add a touch of whimsy and beauty to your next cupcake project whether it be for a traditional birthday party or to celebrate the first day of summer.

There are also a wide variety of cupcake liners for cupcake projects that have no purpose beyond pleasing the lucky recipient.

Meri Meri offers nearly 60 different types of Cupcake Liners, each beautiful in its own way. Made in three sizes – traditional, deckle-edge and mini – Meri Meri Cupcake Liners include bright floral prints, gingham, striped, houndstooth, toile, lace, stars, stripes and even city-themed (London, New York, Paris, San Francisco) and party themed (Shaggy Dog, Princess, Teddy Bear, cars, sports, baby and more).

The Cupcake Liners come in boxes of 46 traditional or deckle-edge ($4.50-$4.95), 96 mini ($5.50), or 100 traditional ($5.95).

Cupcake Wrappers add a special finishing touch to cupcakes. Made of firm paper, cupcake wrappers are designed to hold finished cupcakes – similar to what a garden pot or planter provides for a blooming plant. Meri Meri offers four current designs – two decorated with ribbons, one done in paper lace, and a whimsical colorful design that seems to go with any theme.

For more extensive decorations, consider the Cupcake Kits: a boxed set of 24 cupcake cases and 24 matching decorations to place on top of the cupcakes. Meri Meri offers more than 40 different decorating kits with themes that include “Ahoy There Pirate,” “Fairy Magic,” “Brave Knights,” “Floral Birds,” “Home Run,” “Howdy Cowboy,” “Love in the Afternoon,” “Vintage Rose” and more. Just make your favorite cupcakes, frost, and place a topper in the center of the cupcake and the cupcakes will almost look too good to eat.
