Sharing is caring!

If you’re familiar with my blog you know that I love gift baskets. They make such a great gift.

It shows the lucky recipient that you took the time to make something for them. And you put thought into it.

Not to mention, this cupcake gift basket is adorable!

I’m going to show you everything you need to make this cupcake gift basket.

One thing I like to do with gift baskets is to make the “basket” unique. That’s why for this cupcake gift basket I used a mixing bowl.

This 5-Quart Stainless Steel) Mixing Bowl is the perfect size.

I lined the bottom of the mixing bowl with crinkle cut paper for decoration.

I wrapped some purple ribbon around the mixing bowl for decoration.

I added a cupcake book to the basket. This is the one I used:

A 6 cup muffin pan is the perfect size for the gift basket.

You need to have a fun cupcake liner too.

Since I used fun and colorful cupcake liners I also used colorful measuring cups.

I also added measuring spoons, but for these I did not go colorful. I didn’t want to overdo it.

I added a whisk to mix up the cake ingredients.

And also a wooden spoon.

Last but not least I bought a box of cake mix and some frosting. How can you make cupcakes without that!?

I hope you’re inspired to make your own cupcake basket!
