Pastel Pushup Pretties!

Edited to add--Several of you have asked where I got the containers.
I do not remember. I know that I googled and
found a spot. BUT the good news is that we are
in the process of moving, so I still have the box!
I will look at the box when I get home from work and
let you know! I do know that I bought 100 when I
bought them. They are just that cute!!
Stay tuned for more info (should be on Tuesday evening!)
FINALLY......I found my box and found the name of the website....It is
Hope that helps ya'll!!
 Over the weekend I made lots of these...
Lots and lots of mini cupcakes.

 In keeping with the springtime theme
I used a white cake mix and
a little colored gel....

 To make pastel colored mini cupcakes!

 To the mini cupcakes I
added lots of
squiggly buttercream icing.
And of course a bunch of sprinkles!
(Notice I did not bake them with wrappers.
The picture with the wrapper is for a whole
different dessert, but I liked the pic!)

 Then I put my decorated
mini cupcakes
into these little
push up containers
that I had ordered online.

 Don't they look cute as a
spring bouquet?

 Two mini's fit
the pushup.

 The pushups
come with a
nice little lid
as well.

 The possibilities are

 Since they are all
they keep for several days
all neat and tidy.

 Not to mention
how well they travel.
I know that for a fact,
because I carted mine for
over 50 miles
no problems.

It all started with my
mini cupcakes,
an idea from Food Network.
Now my very own version
