I am doing a wedding in July with 200 cupcakes. What is the best way to get them from point A (my house) to point B (the beach about 2.5 hours away) without them nudging into eachother? I have a van, so space is not an issue. I have never transported that many cupcakes before, and I don't want them smooshing into eachother during the drive.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I just transported 50 to a party and used 2 1/2 sheet boxes. I wanted the cupcake inserts, but my local store did not have them.

Just be super careful driving and you should be ok. Also, maybe take something and "bumper" your boxes so they don't move too much.

Someone here on CC (sorry! can't remember who) said to get those foamcore boards and stick toothpicks (or halves, skewers, etc) in the board and space them out. Then you can press each cupcake onto the skewer and it holds it firmly in place during transport.

The when you arrive to the venue, you can take them off (carefully & making sure the toothpicks, etc. don't remain in the cupcake) and place them on the stand. HTH

I have to transport 190 cupcakes next week. I bought cupcake carrier trays. They hold 12 cupcakes and you can put it into a cake box for traveling. They came 4 per package and were not that expensive.
I got mine at country kitchen

I just bought my first cupcake inserts today at a local store, and love them! Now I know why they are always sold out!

I thought it was pretty ingenious too..... I am fairly certain I did NOT come up with this myself though. Sure wish I could remember who it was that suggested this. They deserve a cupcake. icon_wink.gif

If anyone is still looking for cupcake boxes which are safe for transporting cupcakes withour nudging into each other.  These heavy duty corrugated cupcake boxes are great.
