Upcycling: egg carton muffin box

I guess you could call this Part II of Upcycling: Transforming garbage. I have ‘a thing’ about throwing things away that can be used for something else – it drives my husband crazy.

A few months ago I posted about a collection of household garbage I had transformed into useful home storage items (see post: Upcycling – transforming garbage).

They’re cake mixture in disguise within a muffin paper – not to mention the white chocolate chunks added, or the cream cheese icing!
