My family has gone crazy for cupcakes for the last few years or so.  No one wants just a cake anymore.  So when I saw this cute little box I just knew I had to learn to make it.    It is the perfect way to give away a cupcake to someone to let them know that you care.cupcake boxI really like this stamp set, it is such a fun variety and texture of hearts together and works great for so much more than Valentine's Day.  It is the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set found in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog as either clear mount or wood mount.  After I took this picture I added in a little more adhesive on the corners to hold them in tightly so that they are not flapping in the breeze. cupcake box open

These cupcakes are Weight Watchers Friendly at only 2 points per cupcake.  I generally do not use a mix for baking, it just tastes so much better to make it from scratch, but for this one I made the exception.  You just take a package of cake mix and add a can of your favorite diet soda.  For this cake I used a devil’s food cake mix and a diet pomegranate 7-up.  Just mix it up and cook according to directions.  Then I topped them with some fat free cool whip.  It was actually pretty tasty for something from a box! 

I will look for the pattern for the box for you.  This is the problem with now having my computer and stamping stuff of opposite ends of the house.  I file something in my head to make at a later time instead of turning around and making it like I used to do.  I will find the pattern I used and let you know.
