Anyone know of a company or manufacturer to order custom plastic cupcake containers? I have tried plastic container city.com, I've spent numerous hours researching but have not been successful. icon_sad.gif

The clear hinged cupcake containers. I want the ones that hold a dozen cupcakes. I have not found a company that sale the container measurement Im looking for. I imagine they need to be special ordered . Thanks Cupcations I will keep the company in mind you suggested to purchase liners in the future.

What size cupcakes are you making? Custom cupcake containers are probably going to be very expensive, you might be better off changing the size of your cupcakes to match one of the standard size containers available.

if you are looking for a travel container try Ross or TJ Maxx. I have this container that keeps 24 cup cakes with a lid. It works so well!!! I love it . it has two layers and it can convert into just a cake holder. I love it ! so easy & it never pops open

this is what I use. I get them from Target for $11.99. Hold 24 cupcakes. But you do have to make inserts. My husband made these. I hope you can get these pics.

Amaryllis, how did you make those blue inserts? Did you use a special punch? I'm looking for ideas on making them myself.

And how do the cupcakes rest on the box with that inert? Dont they slide around? Thanks so much for sharing!

Those particular inserts are made from corrigated plastic (like cardboard) from containers my husband got from his work. But we have used foamcore and it woorks too, but probably don't last as long. My husband made a pattern of where he wanted the holes, pre-drlled little holes in it, then used a (I don't know what you call it), but it is a drill attachment that makes door knob holes. It gives you the best circle, because circles are hard to cut by hand. If the holes are the right size, the cupcake fits right in the hole. I transport about 180 cupcakes a week, and don't have problems with them tipping, of course you have to be careful. I sometimes put a little piece of foam 1x1 inch between the holes on the bottom of the insert to make it sit away from the bottom of the container, so my cupcakes sit deeper into the holes. I do refrigerate my cupcakes over night, because I use swiss meringue buttercream and it is really soft, so if it is cold, even if one tips, it doesn't get messed up. I hope you understand this. I am not the best writer. HTH

I wish I could provide a tuitorial, but I never took pictures while he was making them. Now he doesn't have time for anything but school. I hope I don't need him to do anything else for me LOL
