Do any of you CC'ers have any creative suggestions for packaging individual cupcakes for clients? I was thinking of using the Chinese take-out boxes which can be purchased at any craft or party store. I am assuming these are considered food safe for the cupcakes?? Do the cupcakes transport okay or tend to tip over when packaged individually? I'm trying not to spend too much on the packaging but want them to look nice.

Hi- I went to a cake demonstration this weekend and they had some cute little cup cake holders. They looked like something you would get pudding in. Little plastic cups with dome shaped lids.

That sounds perfect. Any idea on where to purchase these?

Hello. I'm also a newbie but I've done bulk baking of cupcakes, also. Wilton sells individual cupcake boxes in packages of 3. They come in all sorts of decorations and have inserts to hold the cupcake in place. You could also use individual cake slice boxes or mug boxes. When I use these, I make a nest of colored tissue paper to match the icing decorations. It holds the cupcake in place and adds a decorative touch. thumbs_up.gif

Hope this helps!

you can get the clear plastic containers and dome lids at GFS Market Place stores. Here is a link to their web page and you can put in your zip code to find a store located near you.
They come packaged 50 to a sleeve and honestly don't remember what the actual cost was, but I wouldn't buy something if it was not reasonable cost. The containers fit a regular cupcake perfectly.

Thanks for jumping in and helping out with info - to be honest I did not get the name of the person who sells those.
