Tools of the (Cupcake) Trade

An essential tool for the cupcake baker is a carrier to transport the little gems from place to place.  There are all different kinds and some are great for presenting the cupcakes as a gift or for those who are serious sellers.  That’s a post for another time.  The carriers I am referring to today however are for the home baker who may be bringing small batches to a party or the office.

My favorite one is the one pictured below that I got at Walmart for just under $5.  It can also hold deviled eggs, a whole cake or pie and maybe a few other treats.  With removable trays, it’s easy to clean and dishwasher safe.  The only thing that would improve it’s functionality is if it could hold up to 24 cupcakes instead of 12.  It has also proved useful for hosting a number of mini cupcakes snugly.

I wish I would have as many great things to say about the 24 count carrier that I recently got from My Coke Rewards.  I saved caps and entered codes all summer for it and my students helped a great deal with getting me caps.  It’s not terrible, but the tray that holds the upper 12 cupcakes bends in the middle and squished the cupcakes in the pan.  But hey, it was free with a little easy labor and when all else fails, I still got another cupcake baking tin out of the whole deal!
