If nail care looked good enough to drink then consider me drunk! This is such an easy and fun favor to put together – purchase a bulk of wine glasses (cheaper to do this) and add items like nail polish, nail file and some sweets.

16. Ring Shaped Cake
I love pull apart cupcake cakes – absolutely no slicing just digging straight in and stuffing your face with cake ! Arrange the cupcakes into the ring shape first (you could draw a template on card ) and fit them together as tight as possible. You can either use a box cupcake mix or even store bought cupcakes and just ice them together in this shape (it’s the thought that counts right?!)
