    I have been ask to do mini cupcakes. I have looked on line for the size and a template. Does anyone know the dimensions of the mini cupcake wrappers or have a template? Can I take the wrapper template we have now and reduce it?

    Thanks

    well, here is the problem with that ...depending on what kind you are doing...they are different sized/different shaped...
    there is the size the we do for homemade mini cupcakes and then there is the size they make at bakeries and grocery store bakeries.... they are taller and more straight up and down....not tapered like the homemade kind
    the small tapered ones that are typical of the pans purchased for home use would only end up being about 9/10's of an inch tall ...so not much room for graphics really

    and all she wants is pink polka dot

    ..... then I would go buy or ask her to buy one as a sample to make a template from...sorry that is the best advice I have!
    reducing the size of the regular cupcake wrapper probly wont work ...or at least I don't think it will ...the purchased mini cupcakes are more straight up and down...
    I could be waay wrong though.

    if you check hobby lobby or micheals or other craft store......you might be able to find a pkg of pink polka dot ones...for $3.00 or so...might be able to just slip them into them??
    just a thought ......o_O

    I know my sister just bought 3 paks of them at a local craft/party store to use at a ladies luncheon at church

    you actually might be able to just do strips of polka dot scrapbook paper and wrap it around if you can find out the height and measurement around .....know any bakeries that you could go ask them to measure?? I am guessing about 1.2 high and 5 around.... but that is just a guess.

    you could also go to micheals and see if they have the pans that are the deep straight up and down well....and take a slip of paper with you and measure?? o_O

    Thanks Paula, I will do research tomorrow. I appreciate the tips and suggestions. I was at a loss since I have never done them before. If I knew it was such a hassel with the sizes and all, I would have said.....ummmmm.... no........LOL

    aww...you will get it figured out !! ......sometimes things seem so easy/so simple and then when we get into doing it ....we think ..."what was I thinking?"
    ...and then after a little trial and error ..... it turns out we find a easy way to do it after all !!

    I love the mini cupcakes.....have been wanting to get one of the professional pans.... just haven't found the right one yet. ...I live in a small rural community and don't get to the stores where I can see and hold one ... and hard to tell on the internet...and I really am not in a hurry.
    anyway...eventually I may be wanting to do labels for them too !!

    Hope you get sorted Jenel (and if you have to create a mini cupcake wrapper yourself....:;):D.....) Thank you for trying to help Paula. Going to look in kitchen shortly as I think I have a mini cake paper thingy (forgotten the blinking word) for when you make them yourself.

    Thanks Roxy...... I may need help again making a template once I get it figured out so I can a fall set for her also. I just wish I knew more about the mini cakes. I know how to eat them and that is about it.

    I already went to those sites and they did not give me the information I needed. The template is a jpg and it says to TRACE it onto printed paper.

    But thanks anyway, I appreciate the help

    You can't print out the pdf templates from both sites and scan them back into your computer then use them? Maybe Paula can help you with that.

    I did that and going to cut it out and trace it as it is a jpg and not a transparent template of just the shape..... I think I can do it.

My customer is going to think I am AWESOME, but it the ladies that helped me that are awesome. Are they just too stinkin' cute or what?!

    They turned out pretty darn good Jenel. By the way the cupcake cases (yes, that was the word I couldn't get...... sheesh) that I had in my cupboard were actually for petit fours, so probably wouldn't have worked anyway. Love what you created between you all.
