Cupcake Favour Boxes

To complement my teapot box and teacup and saucer favours, I have been working on a new box in the shape of a cupcake!

There are already so many cupcake-style boxes out there, but I wanted one in the style of my teapot box; a hexagonal one that has an almost identical lid. So, this is where I began with the design.

I wanted the lid (the cake) to fit inside the base (the case), so I added angled tabs to the lid so that it fits in and stays in place.

Silmilar to my doughnut icing designs, I created two different cakes - a chocolate one with white icing and chocolate sprinkles, and a plain (golden yellow) cake with white icing and coloured sprinkles. I also designed two different colored bases so that the lids and bases can be mixed and matched.

The templates for these cupcake favour boxes are now available from my Etsy shop as two downloadable PDF files. They are super cute and easy to assemble and, once they are filled with delicious sweets and treats, they make the perfect addition to any party or celebration!

And make sure to watch my video tutorial showing how to the assemble the cupcake boxes. They really are incredibly easy to make!
