Wrapping up the Superbowl (Cupcakes)

We aren't huge football fans --I usually watch the halftime show and the commercials, but my son was sad he was too sick to go to a Superbowl party so we made some quick Superbowl cupcakes. He only ate one chocolate cupcake so we had a bunch of leftovers. 

A good trick for wrapping up cupcakes and cakes is to place two perpendicular long pieces of plastic on the counter and place the items to be wrapped on top. Place toothpicks in the top around the outer edge of each cupcake closest to the plastic. Then lift each side up so the cupcakes are completely covered. 

Cakes and cupcakes can also be frozen like this. If you are freezing the cakes or cupcakes, you can remove the toothpicks once the frosting is completely
