Cute Fall Cupcake and Easy Bake Sale Packaging

I'm not a huge baker, but I could not resist the super-easy pumpkin & cake mix recipe that kept popping up on Pinterest and I needed something easy for our school bake sale.  I also saw on Pinterest this cute little acorn treat that was made by Design Dazzle and it was the perfect extra sparkle I needed for my cupcakes!

The kids can help you make these cute treats, using Mini Nilla Wafers, Hershey's Kisses, some mini chocolate chips and a little chocolate frosting.  This would be a really fun thing to make on Thanksgiving, but if you do have a fall bake sale like I did, here is another super easy tip:
Use a plastic tumbler and a baggie to package your cupcakes.  (Baggies brand, with the alligator on the package are the cheapest.)  This keeps the cupcakes protected and a little bit of satin ribbon adds a perfect touch!  Now, go try the pumpkin recipe.  It is seriously de.licious!  (And leave me a little note if you have not tried Pinterest yet and you need an invite.)  ;)
