For many people, the best part of Chinese takeout or visiting a neighborhood Chinese restaurant is getting a fortune cookie at the end of the meal. Fortune cookies aren’t the tastiest cookies out there (when compared to, say, chocolate chip), but those little paper fortunes are fun to read and are definitely something to look forward to as you eat. Not too many other foods give our fortunes, either, but if you get a set of Fortune Cupcake Wrappers, your homemade cupcakes might draw fans the same way that fortune cookies do.
This set is packaged in a cute Chinese takeout-style box and comes with two types of cupcake wrappers. The regular liners are meant to be placed in your baking pan and put into the oven. The second set of wrappers have fortunes printed on the inside and are meant to be wrapped around the lined-cupcakes after baking. This allows anyone eating a cupcake to easily access their fortune by peeling off the outer cupcake wrapper without pulling the cupcake apart. The kit comes with recipes, decorating ideas and other tips to help you make your cupcakes showy, but for me the fun is in the fortunes. When you run out, you can buy other paper liners at craft and cake stores, then put your own fortunes on the inside before wrapping your cupcakes and serving them.
