{I’m a Baker} Office Baking Competition using Tulip Baking Cups

One of our customers, Frankie, sent us some pictures of the cupcakes that she made for her office baking competition and an office food drive event for children.  Frankie won the people’s award for best appearance and taste — way to go!

Below are some picture highlighting her baking creations using our tulip baking cups

{Party Feature} Super Train-tastic 2nd Birthday

It isn’t quite yet 6 months since we celebrated my little boy turning 2….and as the saying goes “better late than never”, so I’m proudly sharing some pics from his train themed birthday celebration!

Selecting the theme for his birthday was pretty easy this year – he loves trains.  He has a Thomas the Train wooden railway set that he plays with every day, so the thought of a train themed party seemed to fit right along his interests.

Train Birthday

Despite his birthday being in November, it had been a rather warm fall (Yes, we live in California) – so we opted to celebrate at the local neighborhood park.

For the cake, I decided to order a cake from the local grocery store and accented it with a train topper that I made from gum paste.  I got the how-to tutorial from this blog post and loved the idea of adding a couple extra train cars to carry two candles!

For extra dessert (we can’t only have cake!), we had some chocolate cupcakes and marshmallow pops!

Train Birthday

I designed some  printable invitations, cupcake flags and and then with putting some bright blue tablecloths on the benches – it brought the park right to life! For the party favors, I used some clear boxes, filled them with some train themed goodies and tied them up with red twine and blue twine!

Train Birthday

All in all, it was a great day. My little guy was thrilled to spend the day with family and friends and enjoyed several rides around the park on the Choo Choo train!

Train Birthday

Happy Train-tastic 2nd Birthday!!

Brown Cupcake Liners / Brown Baking Cups – what sizes do they come in?

Brown cupcake liners are one of our customers favorites. So we thought we’d share some details on our brown greaseproof cupcake liners and the differences in sizes.
Bakers Stock - Brown Cupcake Liners
We carry them in 3 different base sizes: Mini Base, Standard Base, Jumbo Base

MINI: The dimensions of our mini brown cupcake liners are: base:1 1 /2″ and height: 1″. The mini brown cupcake liners require a mini muffin pan. They are perfect for mini desserts.

STANDARD: The standard brown cupcake liners all have a base of 2″ and come in 3 different heights:
2″x 1 1/4″ (aka “Std”) – these are the standard height of your typical cupcake liner
2″x 1 3/8 “(aka “Special”) – these are slightly taller than the standard and give you “more” cake to eat!
2″ x 1 3/4″ (aka “Tall”)- these are the tallest cupcake liner in the standard base that we carry. You see these used most often as the cupcakery bakeries and used for special events. They are about a whole 1/2″ taller than the standard height ones.

JUMBO: The dimensions of our jumbo brown cupcake liners are: base:2 1/4″ and height: 1 7/8″. The jumbo brown cupcake liners require a jumbo muffin pan. They are great staple for the larger size muffins.

If you are a bakery, high-volume cupcakery, or specialty catering business – we recommend that you check out our Bakers Choice product line. We carry larger cases and higher volume discounts. And if you are not sure which liner and/or size is going to work for you – just email us! we’ll send on over some samples for you to try out.
