To use these cupcakes as place cards for a party, pipe the initials of each guest on the "computer screen" before attaching the "screens" to the cupcakes.
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
