I am giving my niece a graduation party in a couple months and making alot of cupcakes for the party. I am ordering cupcake stand to put them on when I get to where we will have it. What can I put them in to transport them with messing them up. I don't know yet exactly how many people she will be inviting but I am anticipating on making at least a 100 or more. Right now I am planning on using BC icing and making little edible graduation caps to put on top unless someone on here has a different and better idea and please feel free to give me your opinion. TIA

Hi ddmom -

I use the under the bed boxes (snap lids) the go on sale around back to school to time and they will hold up to 50/60 cupcakes. I have found that the closer they are fit together they do not fall over. Also, place the non-slip liner on the bottom and you are good to go down the road!

I also put the non slip cupboard liners in the bottom of my boxes and they never fall.

I use the tomato/pepper/strawberry boxes that you can get from Costco or your closest supermarket. They hold about 40 cupcakes and stack together nicely with enough headroom for the decoration.

I went to my local dry cleaners and asked if they had any old wedding dress boxes laying around. They store cupcake air tight and you can get about 60-70 cupcakes per box depending how close you place them. I also use the gripping shelf liner as well. Good Luck

I thought the boxes should be FDA approved or somthing(so I heard), I use normal gift boxes from our clothing store but I line everybit of them with wax/parchment paper.... cuz I called the company & they said the boxes are not meant to store food thumbsdown.gif ...its kinda confusing
