Christmas is around the corner so that means it is time to make cookies to give to teachers and friends. But this year, I am going to add a few cupcakes. How should I package these to be delivered? They will be delivered in person. My son will be delivering 7 packages to his teachers. (not all on the same day) But it needs to maybe be boxed so he can carry w/out problems.The rest are friends and family. I usually make a sampler box of cookies maybe 7 different kind-prob. 5 each. And then a few cupcakes. Hummmmmm....ideas? icon_biggrin.gif

I personally think go ahead and do the tins with the cookies and then as an extra maybe put the cupcakes in shallow clear cups (like disposable "drink" cups you can buy at the party store) and wrap with clear wrap or colored saran wrap with a pretty bow. Other than that you could get cupcake boxes (at walmart, michaels or joanns) that have a spot for four cupcakes. Just my measley 2 Cents though.

I probably would do tins or plastic tubs. I know Walmart has some plastic ones every year that have a handle to them.

I would arrange cupcakes on the outter rim then put the cookies and other goodies in the middle of the cupcake circle.

I did a fund raiser last year for breast cancer so I bought several of the smaller chinese take out boxes in pink from Michael's.I then used a darker tissue paper and lined the box and then set the cupcake down inside.They were the first to sell out!! I think I priced them at $3.00 and of course the money was for charity!!
