I love cupcakes! Who doesn’t? Here’s how to make an easy DIY cupcake holder that’s cute and portable with just a few inexpensive supplies.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 oz Plastic Souffle Cups (I bought mine at Smart & Final in their restaurant supply section)
- Hole Punch
First, you need to make and decorate cupcakes. This easy DIY Cupcake Holder is perfect for making in advance and using for end-of-the-year school parties, for bake sale cupcakes, or for sending home a treat after a party. This cupcake holder will work great with your standard size cupcakes, make in your usual muffin tin, or the usual size sold in bakeries. You could probably make mini cupcake holders by using smaller plastic cups.
Stack together two of the plastic souffle cups. Using a hole punch, bunch a hole, just below the top rim through both of the cups. Repeat on the other side of the cup, directly across from the first set of holes you created.
Unstack the cups and place them as you see in the image below with both top rims laying on top of each other to create a sort of dome.
Cut some ribbon (enough that you’ll be able to tie a bow), and push one end of the ribbon in through the hole on one side of the bottom cup and up and out the hole on the top cup . Tie in a knot or bow (a bow is preferred so it’s easy to open later).
Open up your holder and place it on a flat surface. With another piece of ribbon, string in through the other hole on the bottom cup.
Carefully place your cupcake in the bottom cup while it is sitting on a flat surface. Now, carefully begin to cover the cupcake with the other souffle cup that is now the “lid”. With the second ribbon, carefully push the ribbon out through the last hole on the top souffle cup. Tie in a bow.
Now you have a cute & portable DIY cupcake holder!
