Edible Cupcake Box: A Valentine's Treat


I saw these on sweet simple stuff last night and thought I HAVE to make this... IMMEDIATELY!! They are so super cute and perfect for Valentine's which is coming up. They are really easy to make and there's no baking involved (unless you want to bake your own meringues)  They are not perfect but I am really, really pleased with them. I have a big smile on my face and can't wait to give them out! These would be great as party favours or gifts and they can be adapted for different holidays... the possibilities are endless!

I am linking this to Sweet Luv @Zesty Palette


 I used mini cupcake liners 

 Melt strawberry buttons (available in the supermarket) or candy melts and spread a thin layer over the case. I did 2 layers to make the cases sturdier. 

 Fill with little goodies - I used love hearts - and top with a meringue

 I used edible glue to stick the hearts and sprinkles on the meringue.
