It's back! icon_biggrin.gif The 36 Cupcake Courier sold at Costco for $17.00. It also comes with 3 shelf liners for using for other things such as cookies!! Originally sold for $32.00 at other places. I only saw the clear/white & the blue this time. Hurry while supplies last. Don't forget you can also add a frozen cold pack to this courier to help keep items cold when needed. thumbs_up.gif

Awww, I was just there on Friday (in Spokane, WA) and didn't see it icon_sad.gif I hope it wasn't just a case of me being blind and not seeing something right in front of me again, happens way more than I like to admit shhh.gif

I just bought the cupcake courier and love it for the convenience, but I used it to bring cupcakes to work today and it was a disaster. The cupcakes were red velvet with cream cheese frosting and fondant accents. I put the cupcakes in the carrier last night and this morning they were fine but by the time I got to work most of the fondant accents melted somewhat and were sliding across the cupcakes. I live in Florida and it was pretty humid today, but I'm wondering if airtight containers are not the best option. Is it better to store/transport cupcakes in cardboard boxes when you live in the south?

Humidity + fondant + air tight + cream cheese = baaaddd!! I too am a good ol FL gal and yeah i once had the brilliant plan to stick a cake in my cake carrier and seal it. Totally fine in my nice air conditioned house but when I delivered said cake well let's just say hit molten lava couldnt have ruined it any worse!!

Im not saying its a waste, by all means try it w just BC, try it on a cool day, and maybe try it while praying??? Lol GL

I love mine too...BUT, there is one issue I have with it! I tend to put a big swirl of frosting on top of my cupcakes and the last time I tried to use it, the swirls were too tall and they got all squished!!! icon_sad.gif So, if you're doing lower swirls, then you're good...but medium to higher swirls is a no go!! Just an FYI!

I agree.

I always see them at the Costco I go to....they are right at the front door! I finally got one a few weeks ago....It's already had LOTS of use!

Is this cupcake courier at Costco an item that they normally carry? I bought one this year then I saw them on clearance for 11.99. I was tempted to get another or two but I already have two. I regret it now because I'm making 120 cupcakes for my niece's party and I could have used more to transport. Been hoping they get more in. Please if anybody knows if this is a seasonal item that will be back let me know. Thanks

Does anyone else have trouble getting the cupcakes out without smushing the frosting? That's my only complaint about these. I emailed them a while back and they were planning on making inserts for mini cupcakes that you could purchase. The minis supposedly will have indentions for fingers so you can get them out easier.

I love this carrier but I was having the same problem - so this weekend before my first big wedding delivery my engineer husband came up with a brilliant idea - he took all the trays into the garage and drilled a 1/2" hole in the bottom of each cup so you can lift the bottom of the cakes out and grab them without getting frosting all over your fingers. Also, this left a teeny bit more clearance for my tall frosting.
