guest post / amanda, joy ever after:

August 7, 2012

Today's post comes from Amanda from Joy Ever After. I'm not exactly sure when I came across Amanda's blog but I've been following her for a while now and love her aesthetic and all her blog content - just gorgeous. Thanks for this sweet post Amanda!

Hi there! Amanda from the blog Joy Ever After here, so excited to be posting with you today. I've got a fun project that will work well as a favor, individual servings at a brunch, or just a great excuse for random kindness.

When I came across these ruffle baking cups, I immediately thought of this mini bundt cake that Danni made. How fun to use for a sweet gift!

Since I have plenty zucchini from my CSA, I chose to make this zucchini bread recipe. Any bread recipe will work, and the cups could be used to bake anything (think mini quiche!).

To package them for gifting simply wrap in wax paper, tie with bakers twine, and add a kraft tag. Anyone will be thrilled to receive such a thoughtful tasty treat!
