You know....I use egg cartons! CLEAN AND UNUSED egg cartons so they are safe.
I always keep them on hand just in case I get a mini cupcake order. They are great and pricing is not bad at all (IMHO). 25 for about 12.00! You can just put your own label on them. They are really, really fun to decorate. Good luck!

No, they don't get messed up...That's why I use them. Everything else I tried didn't work nearly as well for me or were way too pricey. They actually fit in there perfectly! Almost like they were made for minis. I have a bad habit of not taking pictures of stuff that I do (never even thought about it before Cake Central) so I dont have anything to show you but trust me, they fit perfectly!! Good luck.

HA!!!!! Found a link with a picture of the mini cupcakes inside of an egg carton! This is just how SNUG mine look. But I use the plain white box with my own logo and info and decorate them according to the theme/event I am taking them to. Good luck

Another idea is to take foamcore board (when it goes on sale for .99, preferably) and use either toothpics or skewer sticks about 2" apart. Place the cupcakes so the bottoms are pierced by the toothpics and it holds them in place.

I have one that is semi-permanent (I hot glue the toothpicks int he base) and then when I take them to the school, I cut the foam core to fit into my sheet pan. If you had some other boxes (deep dish pizza boxes are nice) these can hold them in place and be put into the boxes.

Obviously, be careful when you pull the cupcakes off making sure the half toothpick stays in the foamcore and not in the cupcake. It's never happened to me but who knows??
