Here are the cupcake containers I bought for a craft show. How am I going to keep the cupcake from sliding inside it's little container??? Eeeek! (A regular sized cupcale paper is inside)

AIs there any way you can replace those with smaller ones? If not, double sided tape or glue dots?

AThat's why I use upsidedown 9 oz cups. The lids have a raised ring, that when used as the bottom, holds the cupcake in place. I 've literally transported 1000s of cupcakes that way.

I had been racking my brain trying to figure out how you did that from another thread.... you use the lid as the holder!!! Genius!!!! And here I was thinking you were just turning the cupcake upside down so the icing was smooshed :duh:. herp derp. I will be doing that for the next holiday I bake for. ;-D Thank you!

Yep!  It's waaaay cheaper than specialty cupcake containers too!

If there's a cheap, practical and/or easy way to do something, I'll bet I've done it.  I'm not into complicating my life any more than it is naturally.

I buy the cups at GFS.  They cost about half that and there are 3 GFS stores in my city.  But really, 30 cents is a great price for those cupcake holders.
