Birthday Cupcake To Go

Without making a special trip to the store I usually don't have enough ingredients for a whole batch of birthday cupcakes. Fortunately this this two cupcake recipe only calls for one egg, two tablespoons of butter, and a few other things I almost always have on hand.

I used this recipe to whip up a birthday cupcake for my friend Claire. (I put a few chocolate chips in the batter, because I happened to have them, and I used a mixture of butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter for the frosting.)

I transported the cupcake to Claire in a carrier I made by taping two clear plastic Chinet cups together. 

I highly recommend having a stash of clear plastic cups on hand - they can be used for a multitude of things, like organizing a jewelry drawer.

I put a candle on the cupcake and I taped a match to the inside of the cup.

I also taped a short birthday message to the outside.

This carrier fit perfectly in my car's cup holder which made transporting it especially easy.
