DIY "ghetto fabulous" cupcake courier

post #1 of 108
Thread Starter 
I made my own cupcake courier because i can't afford the plastic ones. You guys can try this if you wish to. it's very easy and fast.

***

i bought 14" x 20" cake boxes and boards. then i got small plastic cups. these plastic cups are kinda like your party nut cups but made of plastic. you can probably use the nut cups but i think they're expensive. all in all my cost was about $4 to $5.

then i lined up the cups on the board, making sure there's enough space around each one and then started gluing them to the board. i was able to glue 24 cups in each board.

the cupcakes fit perfectly and they don't budge. and that's my ghetto fabulous cupcake courier

so here are the pics.

this is the plastic cup i was talking about. it's 3.5 oz exactly like the party nut cups!

Image

it was a little too tall so i had to cut off a little bit. this way i can easily grab the cupcake.

Image

all i did was glue it to the cake board, spacing them carefully (i did not have the time nor patience to draw a "grid" to make sure they're evenly spaced. as rachael ray would say I eyeballed it LOL). As you can see the cupcakes look so cute and well-behaved sitting on their cups.

Image

another pic just for the heck of it. and that's how i made my ghetto fabulous cupcake courier* As you can tell it's just a way to transport cupcakes, it's definitely not for packaging. but i'm actually thinking up ways to make it work for packaging too. i'll keep you guys updated

This is an excellent idea!!! I think this is much better than the plastic thingamagig........You can just throw this away and don't have to worry about storing it if you don't want to. Thank you so much for sharing.

illini89 that's the same reason i "made" this. shipping is too expensive. and i'll use it just to deliver cupcakes so i can still have it back.

heehee great! am glad this is not a harebrained idea LOL

am kinda full of them haha.

with that size of box i was able to put 24 cups in. am planning to buy a smaller box so i can put one dozen cupcakes in them and maybe use it for packaging too. am gonna try to "pretty" it up.

no problem guys, glad to share something with all of you.

make sure you snip the top part of the cups so that you'd have room to grab the cupcakes. the ones i got had ridges and i just cut across them so i didn't need to measure.
