Baking for our Election Day back sale to help the school's PTO, I was thinking about making cupcakes, but how would you package them without ruining the icing? Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
Not sure how much you would want to spend since its for the school. But, there are single cupcake boxes that are for sale online 4x4x4, fairly cheap, about $32 for 100 boxes and free shipping http://www.brpboxshop.com/
Also, I've seen people just wrap the cupcake in wax paper so that the paper just sticks up and touches only the sides of the cupcake not messing up the top.
Cupcakes also fit in those small soufle size solo cups and I belive they have lids for those. If you put them in upside down then their tops stay perfect.
Hope that helps! And hope you guys raise a lot of $$!
Wilton makes single-size cupcake boxes, which come in a package of three for 3.19.
I didn't even know that cupcake boxes existed in singles. Thanks for asking the question! And thanks for the brbboxshop website. I'll have to check it out...
there is a cupcake shop in my neighborhood that uses deli containers, like the kind you would buy your bulk liquids in.
they put the lid upside down on the counter, place the cuppie on top, and then put the lid on upsaide down over it. make sense?
you might be able to find them locally if you have a restaurant supplier in your area or maybe even Costco.
I buy them in sleeves of 100 for a good price at a store called Cash & Carry here in Seattle
I use the cello bags from Hobby Lobby. I believe they are $2 or $3 for 50. I just tie with a piece of ribbon. Wait until your BC crusts so it doesn't stick to the bag. Since they are so inexpensive they are great for bake sales at school. I transport them in the top and bottom of full sheet cake boxes.
Thank you so much for your help. I think I am going to do the boxes. A bit more money, but I think this will make the cupcakes sell faster and look really cute. This site is the best
The cello bags and the little cups are great idea's as well!! Thanks again!
Leanne, thanks for the tip about the plastic containers. So simple! Brilliant!
