Edible Wrappers Just Solved the Only Bad Thing About Cupcakes

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Cupcakes could quite possibly be one of the world's most perfect foods—a tiny cake, just for you!—were it not for those annoying wrappers you have to peel away. But thanks to Dr. Oetker, those are now edible too.

There's no proof that the genius behind these edible cupcake wrappers is even an actual accredited doctor, but who cares? Made from a crispy wafer-like food material, these wrappers are bake-stable, so not only will they survive a run through a hot oven, you also don't need to use a cupcake tray for support. That alone is a big selling feature.

The edible wrappers are also gluten-free, so those jumping on the bandwagon or who actually suffer from Celiac disease can enjoy them. A pack of six will set you back £2.49, so they're obviously more expensive than paper wrappers. But while you can actually eat the paper versions (who hasn't accidentally, in an icing frenzy?) these sound slightly more appetising. [Dr. Oetker via PSFK via Yebaa]
