Those containers work great. I also use cookie sheets (the bigger the better) to transport cupcakes, or large cupcake boxes (I use them over and over) No matter what I use, I always use rubber lining on the bottom to keep them from sliding into each other. icon_smile.gif

I'm doing 150 for July and I am using pop/beer flats to transport them the bride has nice trays and a stand to put them on at the reception so this is a cheap/convenient way to transport them

I had a surprise 40th is Feb with 160 cupcakes and I put them right in 2 big old sheet boxes with the cake sheet boards.. It worked out perfect because I actually decorated them right in the box, closed them up, put them in the jeep and was off..

those ideas sound great!
what do you put in between them to make sure they don't fall over?? or will a rubber pad prevent them from sliding and tipping?

I put one of those rubber kitchen cabinet pads in the boxes over the boards.. They helped having them not slide.

I just LOVE this idea! I have those on hand already...I put ice in them for people to put food & condiments in for parties to keep everything cold & laid out. With using for the cupcakes, you also not only have them protected by using the rubber non slip mat in the bottom, but you have a top to keep the elements out! Great idea! Thanks for posting this! thumbs_up.gif

I use a full sheet box OR those under the bed boxes (depending on how many cc I have) and I buy the foil cupcake pans (3 for $1) and glue them to the bottom of the box. Then you can set each cupcake in the hole, pop on the lid and you're off. No worries about them tipping over or sliding into eachother!

This is what we use. Works great if you have a couple of these.

Whoa! These are what COSTCO sold for $16.00 not too long ago & they came in 4 different colors! Maybe they will get them back in their warehouse again for those that missed out. thumbs_up.gif

I am not sure where my wife bought these. I just did a quick google search and found the link for these ones but they are the same as the ones we have. They do work very well for transporting too.

I use these containers all the time for both customer pick-up and large deliveries.

I like those plastic clamshell containers because it keeps the cupcakes in place, but they are so hard to get out once you go to set them up. I took 75 cupcakes to a party last weekend, and I couldn't get them out without messing up the icing. I ended up using a plastic knife to wedge them out, and it was still a pain.
Does anyone know of containers where the well isn't so deep? I like the disposable ones because you can leave them with the client and don't have to worry about getting the nicer carriers (Cupcake Courier, etc.) back. Any suggestions?

I bought a case of the 14x19" cupcake inserts (2 dozen) then just put them in the 14x19" cake boxes. The case I bought has lasted me well over a year (I don't do a ton of cupcakes) so I always have them when I need them. Transporting 125 wedding cupcakes today in them....

I use the clear, plastic cupcake containers. I found them online at cuptainers.com and I think I paid $49.00 for 100 packs that hold a dozen.
