A new idea for frosted cupcakes

I was searching the net for ways to transport frosted cupcakes. It's always such a hassle for me.. I came across this article on about.com and thought it was such a great idea, I had to share..

They suggest that after the cupcakes are cool, you slice off the top 1/3, put your frosting on, and replace the top of the cupcake. You can then wrap it in platic wrap to transport it or even wrap each individually and freeze till you need it for lunchboxes or snacks...

I never would've thought of that myself, but now it seems as plain as day! lol.. So I thought I'd share for other clueless cupcake toters like me

I just saw a container from Wilton that has little spots for 12 regular size cupcakes in a 13 x 9: tote that carries regular frosted cupcakes safely. It was a package deal though that has other things with it that I don"t need so I am on the lookout for just the tote cupcake carrier. You can flip it over and it will carry 24 mini cupcakes too safely. Anybody seen one of these carriers by itself?

Good Idea for Selling Cupcakes at Bake Sales

I icing my cupcakes and add any decorations needed. And then drop each cup in one of those 6 oz. clear solo cups. Then put saran wrap around the top of the cup (sometimes with a rubber band). This keeps them from getting messed up, and the kid also has a cup (for water or other drink to share) an added bonus. Everyone loves this idea.

Both of these ideas are fabulous. Love the frosting sandwich thing, that's so cool! And the cupcake in a solo cup is fab too!

Catlover, we have one of those carriers. I got it for my daughter when she was taking the Wilton cake classes. It can take the mini cupcakes, regular ones or a 9x13 cake. I got ours at Meijer & I think that Michaels & Hobby Lobby may carry them,too. Walmart carries some of the Wilton line also. I got it for about $15.00 on sale.

I was watching Cake Boss and his sister showed a kid how to eat a cupcake. You break off the bottom and put it on top to make a frosting "sandwich"! I'm so gonna try that next time I get a cupcake.

When DDs were smaller and I had to take cupcakes to school for a treat, I would frost them and put them in a lasagna pan. I would put a toothpick in the middle of each top and then cover with foil. The toothpick would keep the foil from touching the frosting. Just be careful about removing all of the toothpicks before handing out!

I wish that we were allowed to take homemade treats to our schools. I miss making treats like this.
