350 cupcakes: storing and transporting - Page 2

post #16 of 25
If you have to buy a bunch of plastic storage boxes, that's going to really cut into your profits. Personally, I would invest in the them if I knew with some certaintly that I would be using them several times. Otherwise, I'd try to find a cheaper way to do it.

Just a little something to consider.

(And it used so much icing.) The worst part was trying to find a place for them in the kitchen. Cupcakes were everywhere!
I know you didn't ask for this advice, but I'll offer it anyway......give yourself plenty of time to get the job done, and make LOTS of icing.



Rather than spending time and mess refilling the bag every 10 cupcakes, I prepare a bunch of large icing plugs (using my 18" plastic wrap) in advance. When it's time to refill, just pull out the empty and drop in a full. Makes the job go quickly and with fewer headaches.

Good idea! Wish I had heard that tip about a year ago.

I just did an order of 275 cupcakes and for tranporting I tried an idea I saw on CC; I purchased styrofoam, wrapped it in pretty cake board foil and put the wrapped styrofoam in the bottom of the largest cake box my local cake store carries. Then I placed toothpicks into the styrofoam and the put the cupcakes on the toothpicks. It worked like a charm!! The only thing you have to be careful about is that when you remove them from the box you have to make sure that the toothpick didn't come with it icon_lol.gif And icing "plugs" are the only way to go!! This site is amazing for time saving tips.............love it!!!!

I just made 200 cupcakes for an event and I took chocolate candy melts and but a drop on the bottom of each cupcake and stuck them to cake boards. Worked perfectly. Not one moved.

Thanks so much for the tips!! One question...what's an icing plug??
post #23 of 25
Icing plug is icing wrapped in saran wrap to fit in your piping bag. You cut the pointed end off and insert.

Same as mommy...

Walmart has them for $4.00 but they may be a little smaller, about 1.75ftx3.5ft. I don't put anything in the bottom, I just fill them. Any extra space I fill with full paper towel rolls.

For thansport, I use the industrial shelf liner on my vehicle carpet and one layer in between boxes. Even frosted, they don't move.

Hello ladies...

 

I'm excited to have my first cupcake order for christmas fellowship at the church - 375 uniced cupcakes and same have to be individually wrapped in cellophane paper with a ribbon...and yes was surfing on how to transport the same. I prefer to bake in advance and freeze them however i have a small cupcake pan which bakes only 12 cupcakes at a time.

 

Questions: would you suggest i freeze them packed in cellophane paper or better to thaw them the day before and pack them in cello..just for the info ..i will be adding choc chips on the top before baking..

 

Awaiting suggestions
