I have done some research on CC and read through a few threads on transporting large quantities of cupcakes and decided the underbed storage route will work the best for me. I was wondering if anyone had correct standard size cupcake counts per container sizes? There are references to the "small" one holding 160 cupcakes, but there was no specifics besides that . Anyone have counts on the links / sizes listed below?

I use them but I can't give you a count. I have an FJ Cruiser and I bought ones that fit my cargo area. That is more important. Mine are about 3 1/2 feet long. These can be handled by one person, another issue if you are alone. I have longer ones, but they need two people to carry them. I don't use them as often.

As for count, I use mini, tulip, and regular. So the count is subjective too.

I think I get 60 (12 x 5) regular and about 35 tulips. I just used two containers for a wedding with the tulips and I had 75. For minis, I use mini and micro. I have no idea. I just delivered 386 minis and I used 2 3/4 containers.

It's very simple to figure this out. Just measure the top of your cupcake and the bottom of the container and do the math. All of us bake differently.

Thanks, I should have thought of that!
