My very own custom-designed cupcake box!
All functional and everything!
Haha, you’re probably thinking, what in the world is she all excited about? Well the truth is, I was super excited about this box for a couple of reasons: 1) my brother designed and made this box for a school project, 2) he printed the quiet baker on it, and 3) it was a cupcake carrier!
A little background info – my brother is currently studying graphics designing and recently completed a project where the objective was to design and create a functional box from scratch without the use of glue. During his planning stages, he initially asked me for ideas on what kind of box he should make. With my baking-brain and all, I obviously suggested a cupcake or cookie box (so that I could actually maybe use these boxes in the future! hah!). After some research, design ideas, expensive printing, and precise cutting… viola, the quiet baker cupcake box was born.
The day before he had to present it to the class, I made some red velvet cupcakes to fit in the box. We figured that the finished product just wouldn’t be complete without a real cupcake inside. It was a late night of baking to say the least, but we were ecstatic by how it all turned out (I was probably more than him!). Popped on a homemade cupcake tag to complete the look.
Still can’t believe he made it from scratch. Mind-boggling.
