DIY "ghetto fabulous" cupcake courier - Page 2

post #16 of 108
This is a great idea. I can't wait to try it. I'm taking cupcakes to work next week and will transport them using this idea.

What a great idea! Now I'm going to check out the cups that I have at work (restaurant) and see what sizes the large rami's are and if they'll fit the cupcakes! Hmmmm, if they come up missing at work......

This is a great idea! I got a cupcake courier at Bed,Bath, and Beyond (only to find them at Target cheaper a few months later) and love it but the downside is I have to get it back after transporting cupcakes places! I still haven't gotten one tier of it back from my last batch (but that I have to blame on my boyfriend since he hasn't returned them yet icon_wink.gif ). This would be a great idea for cupcake deliveries!

This is great!! I have 6 dozen cupcakes to deliver later this month and I am totally making one of these.. thanks for the idea!

yay! am glad everyone likes it.

i used plastic cups. i don't know if it's available in that size where you're from (they're 3.5 oz) but you can use the nut cups i guess, although that might be pricey. i got 50 pcs of the plastic cup for less than $2. my cost for one GFCC( ghetto fab cupcake courier LOL) was roughly $4 to $6 i think, maybe even less.

This is great! I got one from Target for a wedding gift about a year ago and it broke! This is perfect.

Great idea!

This has been an all consuming worry for me for ages. I had the water guy at work save some flats for me to try to do something with, and that was 2 weeks ago - still bone dry in the idea well.

I have packaging for sales, but this will SO be perfect for deliveries alone! I feel a tryout batch of cupcakes for my daughter's class coming up....! hehe

i might also make another version for packaging but it could get expensive. unless i figure out a way to make my own cupcake inserts out of cardboard... which i probably will when i'm bored enough LOL

I had been thinking of using my husband's circle drill bit to make holes in the bottom of the cardboard flats/trays. Then the cakes would sit in the circles, and be lifted up and held by the tray when delivered. I would set the cardboard tray inside a lidded plastic box, or even a paper box as you did, for safe & hygienic transport. My fear was that the cakes wouldn't be held in place unless the tray was lifted out. Maybe you can use a version of that idea, then let me know! icon_wink.gif

yeah that's what i was thinking too but use a cutter because i don't really have a drill LOL but i'm too lazy to actually measure how big each circle is supposed to be. also i wanna duplicate the cupcake inserts with the two slits on each side so you can grab the cupcake with your fingers easily. but that might make the hole too big and the cupcake might slide and move. so yeah, definitely in the brainstorm stage.

my next ghetto fabulous project would be a cupcake stand.
