The Bakers Party Shop + Expressionery Giveaway

Expressionery BAKES 132

This post is sponsored by Laura Kelly, Bakers Party Shop, and Expressionery. I was given the wonderful product I worked with for this post, but all opinions are my own.

My love language is baked goods. It may sound a little funny, but if you don’t appreciate homemade cookies, cupcakes, or even banana bread then we may not be able to be friends. When I first started dating my husband he told me that he wasn’t excited about baked goods in general. Lucky for him I was able to convert him (ok, maybe I was just fueling his future sugar addiction). In any case, he appreciates when I bake for him now and he even requests his favorites occasionally.

Baked goods obviously make me happy, but a close second on my list of favorite things is confetti and its edible cousin, sprinkles. Bakers Party Shop dedicated the whole month of April to sprinkles earlier this year and declared it Sprinkle Month. Imagine my delight when they approached me to participate in a sweet campaign with them + Expressionery.com. They sent me a fun box of baking and party supplies and I also received the sweetest “Baked with a lot of Love” personalized, self-inking stamp from Expressionery.com. I was a little overwhelmed by the possibilities but decided to bake my Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes for a close friend that was celebrating her 30th birthday. She understands, and has always supported, my need to feed people my homemade treats. Clearly, she needed some tasty and festive cupcakes to help celebrate the big 3-0!

I’ve always been a fan of baking cupcakes in these free-standing baking cups. They are the perfect size and you don’t even need a cupcake tin to bake in because they stand alone on a cookie sheet just fine. I’ve heard them referred to as nut cups, soufflé cups, and party cups. Bakers Party Shop has them in fun colors and this white polka dot pattern. These cups work well for snacks, ice cream, candy, and (you guessed it!) cupcakes. I’ve occasionally had guests be confused about how to “peel” this type of wrapper off of the finished cupcakes when it’s time to eat them. It can be as simple as digging right into the cup with a fork. For those that really want to remove the cup before eating I recommend pinching the rim with both hands and gently pulling out the pleats in the paper. Works every time!

After topping my cupcakes with frosting and colorful sprinkles I wanted to package them up to present them as gifts. I used individual white cupcake boxes and dressed them up with ribbon and simple tags made with colored card stock, a paper punch, and my awesome personalized stamp from Expressionery. Not a ton of effort, but the result had a big wow factor. This kind of presentation is perfect for giving cupcakes as gifts, party favors, or sending dinner guests home with a sweet treat for later. I don’t think you’ll get any complaints about your delicious little gifts.
