DIY "ghetto fabulous" cupcake courier - Page 3

post #31 of 108
I bet this would also work well with cupcake cakes! thumbs_up.gif

You could ice the cupcakes without any danger of sliding, it would also keep them close together.

Maybe you could use foam core to do this idea. It should be thick enough to hold the cupcakes in place, and it is inexpensive and easy to cut with a craft knife.

Hey cool, that's a thought! I'll post my creation when I actually get it together, then we'll see. icon_wink.gif

But seriously, cupcakeshoppe's invention is such a great idea...I think I'm gonna first try to find a deep sheet cake box (no small feat here!) and build myself a lovely GFCC!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Your idea with the drill to make the holes? I did that so I could transport the ice cream cone cupcakes to school years ago and it worked great!! Then realized that on the box of ice cream cones you can send for their carriers. But I started out cutting each hole out of cardboard, then got wise and drilled the holes.

For cupcakes that would also work.

LOVE THIS! NEED THIS!

How about dressing it up? I plan to glue down cups as recommended, and take 1" by 1" or 2" by 2" tissue squares (complimenting icing color) , wrap over a pencil eraser, dab in glue, and "pop onto" the board decorating the board (IF I am really bored). That way both the cupcakes AND display look great!

I totally forgot about that tissue paper activity!

Great idea though!

last weekend I delivered 12 dozen cupcakes.

I was looking into buying the cupcake carriers but the are too expensive and I didn't think I would get them in time for my order.

I ended up going to a party supply store and buying aluminum chafing trays and lids. They were 1.00 each!

Kind of like this:

http://www.partyatlewis.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=7746&Category_Code=2533&Product_Count=4

they were about 3 to 4 inches deep. I fit 28 in each.

I had to put them in there snugly so they didn't slide around. I think I will glue the cups to the bottom of the aluminum tray that way it is a wipeable surface.

I was thinking of sticking (good quality) toothpicks in foamcore to hold the cupcakes in place. Much like the cupcake bouquet-I wonder if it would work?

Has anyone been able to locate the plastice cups in the 3 oz. size? I've looked at WM, Sams, Kroger, KMart... can't find them. If you do, let us know please!
