My New Cupcake Essential

default-image


It took a Tasting & Testing assignment (just wait for the May issue!!)  for me to find the perfect cupcake carrier—one that transports enough cupcakes to feed a New York City-public-school size class (more than 24). After years of digging out shirt boxes or aluminum roasting pans, always at 8:00 in the morning, just as my kids are heading out the door, I've most thankfully found the ideal solution.
The carrier is a little bulky, but is the most efficient  (and pretty and relatively inexpensive) way of hauling  36 standard-size cupcakes—even ones with an oversize pile of butter cream—without  them teetering or toppling over.  Plus the cupcake tiers are removable, making room for a large 3-layer birthday cake (with candles)  or 9 x 13 inch sheet cake.  I figure that after two more birthdays (for each of my two kids)  and a picnic or two,  the carrier will pay for itself.
