I was in Costco last night and picked up this cool little carrier for $16.99! It's just like the one in the link but it has three layers instead of two. You can buy more layers and snap them together too. The little trays can be flipped over to carry 9x13 cakes or you can put the tray handles down to make layers (two per box) for decorated cookies or bars/brownies. You don't have to take the whole thing either as they snap apart and the lid can be used on any of them. I just thought I'd share. Especially since my Costco had the three tier for such a good price! Now I don't have to carry several of the regular cake carriers lined with the no slip junk. icon_smile.gif

(Like I said, I didn't buy it at this store, I just wanted to show you what I got.) Love new kitchen toys! lol

Wish I had one of those right now! I have cupcakes needed for Tuesday for my son's class. I'm going to be making my first decorated cuppies! I am so excited.

Sadsmile - I can't take credit for this cuz I saw it here on CC somewhere and can't search for some reason from work but...if you don't have a Costco nearby you can do what I do when transporting cuppies. I take a shallow box (or say the cardboard box the packages of personal water bottles come in) and get yourself some of those Nut Cups (I get them at Micheals or Party City) and glue them to the box (I've used Elmers or even a glue stick). Cupcakes just sit perfectly in there and you have the added bonus of not having to worry about the height of your icing/decorations. Here's a pic of my baby shower cuppies in one of these. NOTE: You'll want to take a small butter knife to pop them out.

Is the bottom that holds the cupcakes an insert? Does it pull out? Cause that would be cool for cookies too if it does.

It is! And not only does it come out but you can flip the handles the other direction for 9x13 cakes too. The other really cool thing is the handles for the insert can act as little legs so if you use the insert smooth side up you can put it in as a divider. This will allow you to layer frosted cookies on the bottom of the carrier, put the tray in and layer on top of that giving you two layers per container!

I love that container. I've been looking for one like that. Sounds like I might have to make a trip to Indy. Thanks for sharing!

I bought that a few months ago and am in love with it. I have the 3 tier as well, I like to store some tri color cookies on the bottom level (flipped tray) and than cupcakes and cookies on the others. icon_biggrin.gif I'm a little obsessed! Haha!

cool! Am glad you use that idea icon_smile.gif I also read on here to use a foam board and then stick toothpicks on it and stick the cupcake on. i haven't tried it but it seems like a good idea unless you do filled cupcakes. anyway, am glad my idea is of use icon_smile.gif made my day. thanks!

I'm very jealous of how cheap things are over there in the States. At the weekend, I saw the same cupcake carrier at a store here and it cost A$60.00!!!!!!!

Wow! That cuppie carrier is awesome! I wish I had it this past weekend when I delivered 52 cupcakes to a friend for her daughter's 1st birthday. It would have made it soo much easier.
