Cupcake Carrier

When it comes to kitchen gadgets, I love them all. Okay, maybe not all, but I do find some things to be very clever and very useful.

For years, I was on the market for a cupcake carrier. I had just been using large plastic containers to hold them, but they always seemed to get squished if I took them anywhere and they were hard to get out without making a mess by touching the other cupcakes.

After some looking, I found one online at Crate and Barrel, but the shipping was more than I wanted to pay. I kept putting it on my Christmas list, but never got it. I always had good intentions to get to a store, but never seemed to be near one or only was near one when I had no time. So, after a couple of years of wanting something, I bought myself another cupcake carrier. It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but it would hold 24 mini-cupcakes, 12 regular cupcakes or a 9x13 cake and allow me to transport them more easily, so it certainly met part of my needs.

I was happy to have a cupcake carrier, but still, I thought about the cupcake carrier from Crate and Barrel whenever I had to take more than 12 cupcakes with me somewhere.

Well, about a month ago, while participating in a work function, I found myself right by a Crate and Barrel. I had to stop in. Sure enough, they had the cupcake carrier that I had been wanting. I, of course, bought it. I have already used it a couple of times and I love it!

What makes it better than most, in my opinion, is the fact that you can carry 24 cupcakes in it. When I make cupcakes, I tend to use a boxed cake mix, which makes 24 cupcakes. (of course, for my son's half birthday last week, I had to make it into 27 cupcakes and make them fit on the carrier) It is so nice to have a carrier that fits them.

This is one cupcake carrier that works for me!

You sound just like me! I've wanted one of these for awhile but just haven't ponied up the money.

I'm glad you're enjoying yours!
