First you'll notice how adorable these cupcakes are, in their pretty jar, and then you'll ask 'How do you get them out?' Or if you're quicker than me (not hard) you'll realise straight away they are for eating in the jar, with a spoon. I'll admit, until I saw the photo I was willing to go in with four fingers and a thumb.
Just when I thought I'd seen everything, here's a great gift-giving idea from G Desserts on Notonthehighstreet.com which is a brilliant way to give a cupcake, in person or through the post without the smashy-smashy. Other than a clown crying, there is no sadder sight than a smushed cupcake (though unlike a clown it still tastes good. I don't know what that means.)
I have some on the way - in 8 different flavours which all sound divine - so I'll do a follow up nearer to Christmas when they arrive and let you know if they live up to their irresistible packaging (I have high hopes), but in the meantime wanted to share as they really are a great gift for teachers, neighbours, lollipop ladies and men (I love that in the UK crossing guards are called 'Lollipop Ladies' because stop signs here are round), or friends. Or you. Don't be a martyr, go for it.
