just wondering what everyone uses to package their cupcake you use a board and then place them in the box, or just the open window boxes??? Thanks

I use cupcake tins- the plastic ones with the snap lids just like the grocery store. For big orders I went to Sam's Club, purchased a case of cupcake inserts from the bakery. THey hold 30 cupcakes, and I use those for weddings in 1/2 sheet boxes. I have also done many cupcakes in a simple 1/2 sheet box or 1/4 sheet box without an insert. Works fine- just make sure the box fits the amount of cupcakes you need.

Is this what you're talking about?

I was wondering if they worked well.

Yep- they are a lot like those. Except Sam's Club is WAY cheaper. I like how they work. You just have to make sure the insert is pressed into the box a ways, or your cuppies will fall through!

Can you share how much they are at SamsClub? I buy my 1/2 sheet boxes and the domes for the 10 in cakes and they come to about $1 each

The inserts at BRP are fabulous!! I use the 24 inserts and they were only $35 or so for 100, plus they ship FREE!

I didn't know they had them at Sam's!

Do I have to go to the actual bakery and ask one of the workers there? I'm always looking for a better deal.

for the last three years I have always used a 1/2 sheet cardboard in the bottom of a 19X14X4 box. A squirt of icing on the bottom of each one will hold them in place.

Just this week I bought the brpboxshop inserts that hold 2 doz.

I bought the inserts and they are great...I decorate them right in the box! A little hard to get out sometimes but otherwise they're a lifesaver.
