Local food spots are getting creative with their take-out options, offering make-at-home kits for everything from cupcakes to cocktails (see Inlander.com/food for more on drinks).

Lilac City Bakery and sister location Celebrations Bakery are taking preorders for themed cupcake-decorating kits ($40 each; gluten-free and vegan kits also available for $50). Each kit comes with a dozen premade cupcakes, piping bags of colored icing and decorations like sprinkles. Last week's theme was a sunflower-inspired cupcake; new themes are announced Mondays on the bakery's social media pages.

Vine & Olive Eatery and Wine Bar in Coeur d'Alene is helping take craft night to the next level with a DIY wine cork trivet kit that comes with a bottle of bubbly rose. The $20 kit has all the supplies and instructions you'll need (minus a hot glue gun) and can be preordered for pickup. Make one for yourself, your best friend or as a Mother's Day gift. Find details on the restaurant's Facebook page.

Restaurants in the Goodwin Group — Backyard Public House, Barnwood Social Kitchen, Remedy Kitchen & Tavern, Brick West Brewing — recently introduced a collection of "avoid the store" home cooking and entertaining packages. A movie box ($29) comes with candy, popcorn and soda, while the dinner box ($49) comes with basic ingredients to make up to eight meals. The restaurants are also offering brunch boxes ($39) and cut-your-own steak boxes ($85-$135). Call your nearest location to order a box for Friday pickup.

Pie + Pints Pop-up @ Lumberbeard Brewing

Fridays, 5-7 p.m. Continues through Oct. 29
