I went into a little grocery in my neighborhood to pick up some baking cups. Or muffin liners. Or whatever you want to call those little paper things that sit in your muffin tray and wrap securely around your baked goods. Cupcake condoms?
It took some hunting but eventually I found what I needed.
Take a look at the name of the company that makes these things.
I married into a Jewish family and am a recovering Catholic. Guilt is something I’m quite familiar with and I know it when I see it. Is this what companies are forced to do now that there is such a push for “going green”?
(What’s next? Companies named “If you love your children” or “If you want to live to see 80″?)
To address the packaging and its passive-aggressive green guilt trip, I do care.
This was the ONLY baking cup that the store had in stock.
Even if I didn’t care, I didn’t have any other choice. The lack of supply in the store forced me to purchase these. Which leads me to think that perhaps this company should be called…
If you can’t find anything else.
(Not as catchy, I know. But guilt-free AND true.)
