    Anyone have a good idea for packing cupcakes? I don't have any nifty container thingie. I usually put them in a shirt box but I don't have one.

    How many are you taking? If you want to pack them individually, I saw a cute idea on pinterest putting each one in a little clear punch cup and then wrapping the whole thing in a party bag. If I take a whole bunch I usually put them on a cookie sheet.

    Toothpicks work really well for keeping the wrap off the frosting. Or I've had some luck with building a cover with tinfoil.

    you might want to invest in one of those rubbermaid cupcake containers. You can find them at WalMart.

    If you'd like to practice packing cupcakes, I'm a willing recipent. (Of course, you'll have to practice shipping, too...) :)

    I think a cupcake holder is well worth the money...you get them at Walmart for less than ten dollars.

    Or get cardboard holders for six-packs and cut them down to a shorter size.

    Avon had the coolest holder about 7 or so months ago.
    Who does Avon on this site needs to hook the sista up!

    Now! If you are talking about packing to take to a party,
    then one of those covered cake holders would be just fine.
    They are going to be snugging tightly to each other and you
    do not have to worry about them moving around.
