Yesterday I posted a recipe for Key Lime Cupcakes and I forgot to include this great find I just have to share with all the cupcake connoisseurs out there.

Cupcake Social has thee cutest cupcakes liners and toppers around. Trust me, I've been hunting for a while now.
Check out these little floral liners .......
And these polka dots!
That's all I'm going to show you or I'll ruin your fun when you browse the site. If you want to spruce up an ordinary cupcake one of these little liners will do the trick. Guests will think they are going to partake of something special -- even if all you used is a store bought mix. Presentation as they say, is everything. (Well that's not really true, but it sure helps!)
One more thing. I just have to add a little tip for scooping batter into the cups. Use a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop that has the mechanism to release the ice cream (or the batter in this case.) Using a scoop ensures that all your cupcakes look uniform and that you don't overfill the cup. If I use this scoop, I can consistently make 24 cupcakes with a little batter left over. If I try to eyeball it with a spoon -- well, that's another story.
