Discover Cupcake Wrappers

With cupcake wrappers, you can create stylish cupcakes without the fuss of frosting, fondant or sprinkles. Made from paper, these cupcake collars fit around your baked cakes and add a bit of pizzazz with very little effort.

Wrappers, Liners, Baking Cups… What are they and what’s the difference? Cupcake Wraps wrap around your cupcake as an embellishment after they’ve been baked and covers up the paper liner you used during baking. However, the frosting is still visible and adds to the beauty of the cupcake. On the other hand, Cupcake Liners and Baking Cups hold the cake batter and go into the oven and bake along with the cake batter. You’ll sometimes see the terms wrapper and liner used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing.

No-Template Simple Cupcake Wrapper

The standard dimensions of a commercial cupcake wrapper are a bit tricky since they are all cut in a curved shape which is hard to duplicate without a template. This very easy cupcake wrapper is made with straight cuts so you don’t need a pattern, just a ruler. Scrapbook paper is a nice thickness for this project and is little more durable if you need to make some adjustments to the size of your wrap.

Materials needed:

1 piece of scrap book paper (8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet size)
Supplies needed:

Regular scissors

Step 1: Using the ruler, measure out a rectangle about 1-1/2″ wide and 8-1/2″ long. Mark out the shape using the pencil. Cut out the rectangle shape with scissors.

Step 2: Carefully curve the paper strip around your cupcake. Make sure the paper is snug, but not tight. You want to be able to remove your cupcake from the wrapper. Tape the paper in place.
