How do you guys transport cake pops, I have to make 40 Santas with hats so I can't put them down in a box, any ideas or tip would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Styrofoam would work, the 2 inch thickness, so you could push them in deep enough to handle the road.

I use the metal round cupcake stands that I have. The stick goes thru the bottom (which is all open due to the metal scrolls) and the pop sits in the actual cupcake holder. It makes a nice presentation and is very secure, no chance of them tipping over. I even use the cupcake stand for the cake balls without the sticks. I just sit the ball in a cupcake liner, then right into the holder. HTH

How about egg cartons? Also, how long will these last do you think.

I transport mine with the stick poked into styrofoam and haven't had a problem yet. That is usually how I present them too. Of course the styrofoam is wrapped in coordinating wrapping paper or contact paper.

Glad the styrofoam worked for you. As for me, i was a lil sketchy on using it because i was afraid that after a while, the hole might get bigger and it will lose its ability to hold it steady... so i went a lil further and made a stand out of wood. Just drilled in the holes and put foil around the wood and some decorative holiday ribbon around it (kinda candy cane style). Came out great and i dont have to worry about the holes getting bigger!

I am thinking I will have my husband make me one out of wood, since I am getting a bunch requests lately.

I used styrofoam covered in wrapping paper and it worked great. They traveled an hour away with no problems.

my husband built me a board with drilled holes in it just the right size for the pop stick. Made it on 2" centers and my board can hold 3 dozen. You can see the board in my photos (cake pop photo). It works great for making and transporting pops.

Yeah, wood is nice and heavy so no worries of toppling over =)
