Hi, I have these 2 photos saved on my computer, I tried searching for their creators, but couldn't find them.

I was just wondering, how can I transport these to the customer?
The cupcakes in a cone are placed in plastic cups, but I don't think it's enough.

Thanks a lot.

I think the person that made the cupcakes in the first picture said that putting the candy in the bottom of the cup gave them the weight they needed not to topple over during transport.

I'd like to know, too. Aside from putting the plastic cups into a large box so that several fit snugly in the box, I don't know how people transport these without them falling over. Although...you could put a few more candies in the bottom maybe.

One thing you might think about if you wanna do ice cream cone cupcakes is to use the waffle cone BOWLS instead of the stand up cones. Keebler makes a waffle cone bowl (10 to a box, I think it is) and they're perfect for cupcakes. The JOY brand bowls are way too big. Just put the bowls in your cupcake pan like you would a cupcake liner because I found that the bowls would flatten out a bit during the baking process. But I think if they were in a cupcake pan or had a metal ring around each one or something, they'd keep their shape better.

The bowls are much easier to transport - just put several in a cake box and they won't tip over like the top-heavy cones do.

would the cups fit inside of a muffin pan?

I would put the cups in a box close to each other, a box just big enough to fit them all. The others, just like they are in the box. Take corners slow. icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

Sorry for the late reply, just realized I had new comments. All you do is use the cones as your cupcake papers, so you bake in the cone and voila! Fill it maybe 1/2 to 2/3's, I filled up mine too much! I wrapped them in cellophane bags, just fit them snug on a box to transport. The m&m's and cups do a really good job keeping them in place. Hope this helps!

I did these for valentines day - i had candy in the bottom of the cups, it really adds stability. I transported in soda flats - the half boxes that water/soda come in. worked fine.

Thanks a lot for your replies.
I don't deliver the things myself, it's always the customer who picks up, or sends someone to pick up. My concern is that the cupcakes tilt and the icing gets ruined.

AmandaRiley: Thanks for finding the person who did the cones in a cup.

newmansmom2004: The bowl idea is cute, but kids won't see them as "ice cream".

Do you think that the clowns cones are filled with anything?

cupcakemkr: do you mean the soda boxes that have a separator with holes?

If you do the big swirl of icing on the top and put sprinkles on them, they look just like ice cream sundaes in a bowl.

how does one get the cupcake out of the plastic cup without touching the icing?

cupcakemkr Posted 4 Apr 2009 , 4:09pm

no, the ones that look like half boxes.

Who knows who made the clown cones? Do you think there is something inside them, or just empty cones?

Me and the kids tried making them today, they looked like they needed to be filled with something.
