I don't frequent the cooking boards, though I should (I'm a culinary school drop out).  I was hoping that you lovely  people would have some advice for me.  Next Tuesday (4/22), we're having a potluck thing at work, and I'm supposed to bring cupcakes.  I work for a fairly large company, so that means I have to transport 60+ iced cupcakes.  Is there an easy way to do this by myself without messing them up?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I was actually just eyeing this the other day, they were selling them in my local grocery store. I dont know of anything better, though I dont know if you want to go spending money just for this one occasion.


Other than that - I've put cupcakes into this brownie pan that has a snap on tupperware lid. I'm not sure what brand it is, but its pretty convenient, the lid is raised, so as not to interfere with the heaps of icing I put on my cupcakes Smiley

this is kind of like it, only its a longer pan and this isnt the same brand I have:

I saw a cute cupcake carrier at Target the other day- three layers and different colors.  My sisters are cupcake afficianados, so I'm always looking for some cute trinket or bobble.

I have a pan, with a snap-on lid, that I use now. But before I had it I got all crafty with cardboard and hot glue to make a multi-level carrier when I had to transport 50 cupcakes. I cut a box up to make long flat boxes (like Krispy Kremes come in!) with lids, then tied ribbon around the whole shebang for handles. It kind of took a long time, and I used a lot of hot glue, but it worked well.

Science is crafty too.

Wow, thanks guys for all of the ideas!  I have one of those pans with the lids, but that only goes so far.  I think I may be robbing visiting my local grocery store to steal acquire donut boxes this weekend though, that's brilliant!  I considered buying a plastic cupcake transporting thing that I saw at a few stores, but it was like $20 and only held around 20 cupcakes, so I'd have to buy at least three!

Thanks again!

I will gather boxes from some stores that have a good lid. I will also save containers from store bought cakes and cupcakes. Wash n reuse.

Interesting fact (brought to you NOT by Dwight Schrute, but from Pam Beesly), Jenna Fischers (Pam) ex-sister in law (Jennifer Gunn) invented and designed the cupcake courier!


I remeber hearing about that like, two or more years ago, right when I first started watching The Office. I had to look most of that up...I'm not that wierd!
