I made cupcakes for my son's class on Tuesday and carried them in a box-they toppled over.

I am now in the market for a cupcake carrier. I have seen two on Amazon that look interesting:
The Cupcake Courier
and Oneida Cupcake carrier

Does anyone have any feedback on cupcake carriers?

I have 2 of The Cupcake Courier. I bought one and loved it so much I searched high and low for another. It travels like a charm and has plenty of room for lots of icing icon_smile.gif I have nothing but praise for this product.

Stay away from the Oneida one. I'm assuming they only have one kind, so if it's like mine, you would be better off with a couple of Rubbermaid bowls lol. The way that piece swings around to connect the 2 pieces just isn't secure enough for me. I have a Wilton one that works fine, but am looking to buy the Courier soon, I've heard great things about it.

I always did a 24 can soda tray, covered in foil. That wedged them in pretty full. I could get all four boys to school with cupcakes- all standing.

Kid's classes are limited in size, I always made 24 and that allowed one for each kid, and teacher, and aid, and may a parent or two. Also an extra for an occasional dropped one. That way, I didn't have to wait to get it back.

But I must say, at 20 bucks- cute! icon_biggrin.gif

I agree about the Oneida one, I have it and not only does the latch seem unstable, but there really is not a lot of room for icing. Also the bottom tier is actually a cupcake baking pan...ever try to get a fully iced cupcake out of a cupcake pan? icon_confused.gif

If you REALLY want a lot of room for icing, just go to Target and get their run-of-the-mill 12-cupcake/24-mini carrier. It's a single level, kind of like the Wilton one, but is only $5!! I purchased it in-store (I have not seen it on the website), and it's so cheap you can purchase more than one..you just have to work out the logistics of carrying two containers. One caveat: the cupcake holes are rather shallow, you might still get some falling over...but if that happens to you, you can just recycle it as a great cupcake keeper for your home.

That said, from all of the rave reviews, I do wish I had just bought the Cupcake Courier to start with!

Ditto what cas17 said. I travelled from Canada to the US to search for a cupcake courier! I use it for square cakes and smaller stacked that don't fit in my round caddy.

I use these longish shallow storage containers from IKEA that work really well, especially since there are no pre-divisions, I can put all sorts of things in them without being restricted by shape or size. But at 20+shipping, the courier is begining to look cute. I wonder if I should get one or two?!!

I have the wilton carrier and if you hit a bump or stop short in the car the cc's will tip over icon_sad.gif

I also have the cc courier...IT IS THE BEST!!!! Works like a charm and can fit a cc decorated with tall frosting without squishing. thumbs_up.gif

I have The Cupcake Courier (I believe that's what I have.. I bought it in Germany and it has a different name here), here is what it looks like

It's excellent! You can carry 36 cupcakes or muffins in it. The only thing tricky about it is getting the iced cupcake out. I'm usually just using two forks to get them out and it works just fine. thumbs_up.gif

hmmm...looking good was just wondering they dont look too big-the cc's ...are these medium size? I usually make mine large..would it still fit 36 large ones?

I have 3 of the Cupcake Couriers and I love them! If you have a Target, Homegoods, or Bed Bath and Beyond near, try there first before you order online and pay S&H. I got one from Target for $19.99 and my mom got the other 2 at Homegoods for the same price. I don't think you can go wrong! I know the creator of this product was at one point and time a CC member too! icon_biggrin.gif

I have 2 as well and couldn't agree more, I look forward to having to take cupcakes places icon_smile.gif I bought 1 for myself and 1 to put away for a future gift, I loved the first so much I couldn't part with the second one thumbs_up.gif I was lucky enough to catch mine on sale, but I would pay full price for it and still be very happy. Good luck!

I recently (Oct.) bought my Cupcake Courier at Home Goods for $19.99 and love it. It accomodates standard sized cupcakes with a moderate amount of frosting. If you have large toppers, you'll need to put them on at the site or just use them for 12 and keep them on the top tier.

Ditto on the Cupcake Courier! I got mine on-line for about the same price. I wished I had two.

The lady who invented them was/is a CC member. Now, I wished she'd come up with a carrier to hold the TALL ice-cream cone cuppies. If she did, I would soooo buy it! icon_biggrin.gif

I love my courier. I bought it at bed bath and beyond with the coupon. I recently made mini cupcakes for work. About 200 of them. Then I thought how the heck am I going to transport them. so I used the cardboard of the ceral box,put them in the courier and I transported 110 mini decorated cupcakes. I still had to take two other boxes for the rest of the cupcakes. But It worked.

What about when you don't want to leave the carrier. Those look great for when you can go pick them up or have your children bring them home but what about when you drop and leave. I make a lot of cupcakes that I drop off and don't necessarily want to go back and pick up a carrier. Does anyone know of any disposable ones that work great?

i just use those plastic boxes that you store ornaments in.. i got them at bed bath and beyond, they were only $10 with their coupon... they are square clear plastic boxes that latch together with a green cover . i removed the ornament dividers, but you could leave them in... i have 3 sets and they all can be attached to each other, so that i can easily carry up to 8 dozen cupcakes at a time.

Tupperware. It holds 18 good size icing tops and flips over to hold a 9 x 13 sheet cake. Pricey at $46 but has a LIFETIME warranty against breaking!
