This is my personal website representing my kitchen. In my kitchen, I have a COLLECTION of RECIPES which have been enjoyed by my family and friends for years. My purpose in creating this blog is to share these recipes with all my kababayans who are away from home and missed their moms' home cooking. For those who have family members who prefer non-traditional Filipino dishes, I have RECIPES for them too, hence, PINOY-AMERICAN..MaMely.
FYI, "Pinoy" is an informal demonym referring to Filipinos.
Let me share with you a DIY cupcake wrappers using paper doilies, the idea of which I saw on Pinterest.
The wrappers on the left are cut out from the doilies and the ones on the right
are the store-bought laser-cut ones which are kind of pricey.
These doilies are $1.00 for a pack of 10 at the Dollar Store.
First, make a template: or you can download one from the net.
Wrap a piece of paper around a cupcake, tape the seams together, then mark where you want to cut it out. Make sure to mark about 3/8 of an inch above the rim of the cupcake.
Take out the paper and cut out along the marked lines.
Open it up and use this template to trace it with a pencil on the back side of the doilies.(I used a marker pen so themarks will show in the picture)You can stack up your doilies as many as your scissors can cut. You can get 3 wrappers out of one doily, which means that out of the 10 pieces you'll get 30 wrappers just for a dollar!! How cheap can that be?!
This wrapper is made from a doily paper.
You can also make your wrappers out of gift wrap papers for birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers or any occasion.
