Regardless if you’ve decided to bring cupcakes to a dinner party for dessert or for someone’s birthday party, you’ll need to transport those pretty little individual cakes safely and securely.
Cupcakes. They’re tasty, look dainty and pretty, and are always a hit with all regardless of what the flavor, occasion, or how you’ve decorated them.
But you don’t want to risk ruining or dropping even one of your cupcakes! Therefore, how can you transport cupcakes so they get there in the same condition in which they left your kitchen?
Baking pan in a roasting pan
Set the cleaned cupcake pan in a roasting pan that’s big enough to completely cover the tops of the frosted cakes. After your cupcakes have cooled, put them in the cupcake tin and frost them. Cover the pan with foil, and you’re good to go.
Resealable, shallow container
If your cakes are slightly frosted, put them in a big, shallow plastic container so they are slightly touching. Make sure to keep the container horizontal while you travel.
Non-skid shelving liner
To stop extensively decorated cupcakes from moving about, layer a non-skid shelving liner or Silpat mat in your shallow boxes or resealable container that’s deep enough to hold all the frosted cakes. Put the cupcakes in so they’re close but don’t touch. The liner will help keep them in place.
If you’re a cupcake lover and have some space in the kitchen, it could be worth buying a cupcake carrier. Several are stackable, letting you customize them according to how many cupcakes you have to transport.
Purchase a cupcake box. These are readily available online or at your local gourmet baking and cooking store. Some craft stores might also have a small selection. Boxes are available to hold six or a dozen cupcakes securely.
