Hi! Calling all creative minds on CC. We are having a bake sale at church to benefit our youth group, and I am looking for some creative and inexpensive ideas for packaging multiple cupcakes together. I was thinking of breaking it up into a dozen and half a dozen. I've already thought about using cute baskets but was hoping you guys could come up with some other ideas.

Fore a bake sale, I'd be more likely to buy a box of 4 than I would a box of 12.

How about some cupcakes decorated with a rose and placed in a box that the floral shops deliver their roses in?

What if you put them in one of the little clear plastic punch glasses and then put the cupcake in a cellophane bag? You could tie it up with a ribbon and then they could buy them individually.

A bakery near me puts the cupcake in an upside down plastic cup. The cc sits on the lid, then the cup is placed on the lid. I thought it was an unique way to transport cupcakes. You could also use the square clear to-go containers.

my girlfriend just went to the local grocery store bakery and bought me a bunch of those clear plastic cupcake containers that they use for a $1 each. They hold a dozen but I think they have the 1/2 dozen size too.

If you have access to a GFS store they sell the clear plastic ice cream sundae cups (squat kind) with the dome lids, I bought these for other reasons but I don't know why they wouldn't be a great container for individual cupcakes

I've liked cupcakes from my childhood days. I started baking them from the time I was 12. Now I run a cupcake shop nearby my house. I'm really proud to say that I've converted my hobby into a profession. I am a newbie in this forum. I would like to get suggestions for quality packaging of my products. Or please suggest me a good packaging company. What about Goldrich Printpak at Toronto? They are of close proximity to my home. Also I have heard that their packaging is very much impressive. As of now, I've been using greased or parchment paper for the the covering and insert the pieces carefully into paper box. Now I feel that there is a need to improve my package. Creative suggestions are welcome.
