Hello all,

i have an order for 40 cup cakes in a few weeks that i just got. i am wondering how i can transport these without them getting ruined or the icing getting squished.

do i have to go out and buy special cup cake containers (those clear ones) or can i use a cake box some how?

any tips would be greatly appreciated!

You can use a cake box with a cardboard put into the bottom of it.

If you're just doing swirls on top, it's easiest to put the cupcakes in the box and then pipe the swirls.

A cheap and reuseable alternative is get a thin sheet of styro (from craft store), put in inside one or more cookie sheets, stick toothpicks evenly spaced, pop your cupcakes on (so toothpick pierces bottom of cupcake).

Then when you arrive, you can pop them off and set on a platter, serving tray, etc. Obviously be careful not to lose a toothpick when removing the cupcakes. This is how I always brought them to my kids class or delivered for use on a cupcake stand.

The same theory works even better in clean boxes to prevent dust, etc. HTH

You can also put them in a tray cut from a cardboard box and lined with nonskid drawer liner, if you're going to be delivering and setting them up.

I transported some cupcakes in a gift box, the ones with lids, they arrived perfectly.

Try going here! They talk about a really creative and genius way! Not to mention very affordable way to transport any number of cupcakes! I have tried it several time and it really worked amazing. At one point, 60 in a box, and not one fell or got mixed up!
