I want to tell you about this awesome cupcake carrier! Over the weekend I made some Vanilla Coffee cupcakes and headed up to our church to hear a special speaker. As I was frosting the cupcakes, I was wondering how I should pack the cupcakes.

I didn’t want to box them because it’s only 8 miles to our church and I hated to use up cupcake boxes for such a short trip (they leave oil rings, so I don’t re-use them).
Anywho – then it hit me that I had this brand new cupcake carrier in the closet that I bought a couple of months ago and hadn’t had a chance to use!
Ya’ll… this Fox Run Cupcake Carousel is IT when it comes to carrying cupcakes.
I used to be a Tupperware consultant and I have their cake/cupcake carrier but honestly, that thing is a joke with cupcakes (sorry Tupperware… I do love 99% of your products. Just not that one!).
In the Tupperware Cake/Cupcake Taker, the cupcake holes have walls about 1/4″ high and they’re spaced so that the cupcakes don’t touch each other. That sounds all good and fine except the first bump or tilt and the cupcakes topple all over the place. There’ s nothing to hold them in place!
Usually for big orders, I box them if my customers will be picking them up (and I don’t use cupcake inserts – I pack them in next to each other) OR if I’m going to be setting up myself, I’ll even transport them in cake pans. The 2″ high sides on the pan make the cupcakes secure from tipping over.
But for things like today – short trips to the church, I hadn’t found a good solution. Then my friend Abeer over at Cake Whiz talked about this new Cupcake Carousel that she bought and loved and I knew I had to have one!
Well let me say this – after packing up these cupcakes today, I have to agree that this cupcake caddy is amazing! I piled up the frosting as high as I always do and I was still able to securely get 2 dozen cupcakes in here without damage. Love it!
When I find a product like this one that I really love, I feel obliged to share with all of my cake (and cupcake) friends just in case it’s something you might love too!
Anywho – I’m off to relax now. I hope you’re all having a fabulous week!! xx
Do you have a favorite product or trick that makes carrying cupcakes easier? I’d love to hear about it!
