Do it yourself cupcake liners. I saw this picture and had to try it myself. I couldn't figure out how to download a template from that site so I googled 'cupcake liner template' and the first one I clicked on came with all kinds of dire warnings about malicious code so I quickly shut it down.
One can't have malicious with ones pretty, lacy cupcake liners. It's just not right.
Then I figured I would just start cutting and see what happened. No template required. I used a regular cupcake liner as a guide and a little double sided tape to hold things together. These liners don't have a bottom - just a little lip around the bottom edge.
I figure you get two or three per doily (depending on the size of your doily). Let's say you get two from each 8" doily and if a package of 20 doilies is about $5 that is 12.5 cents a piece compared to about $1 a piece for the laser cut ones.
Oh and here is the cupcake recipe I used - only I left out the pastry cream (for lack of time). The frosting (or is it icing? I never know which one is correct) was easy and tastes great. I just dipped the cupcakes into the pan and gave it a little twist. I let them dry for about 15 minutes and then dipped them again. The cupcakes puff up when you bake them but then flatten out nicely when they cool.
