This is such a clever little trick. I have oodles of random cupcake and candy papers left over from all sorts of baking and confectionery. This is a great way for me to use them up and keep peoples' yicky fingers outta my M&M's. Thank you!

What a great idea. I might even take my own papers and select some goodies before the slobs get to them.

I reckon this would work with hummus too, I do hate double dippers. This effectivekly makes duplex intinge phobia a think of the past!

This idea is genius, it could stop the spread of viruses and bacteria.

Cupcake papers save lives!
