Real Simple magazine recently showed this easy way to transport cupcakes.
Use a shirt box, cut one X per cupcake and push the corners down like pictured above.
This is great for many reasons... don't have a fancy cupcake carrier? don't want to lug one around? wonder if you leave it somewhere if you'll get it back?
The box carrier is great to take to a child's party or office potluck or maybe you're donating cupcakes to a good cause or maybe you're bringing them to a tailgate. It's lovely for the host not to have to worry about cleaning it and getting it back to you. Just toss it when they are done!
Also, these can be used for cupcake display. You can even cover the boxes with wrapping paper to match your decor. Place them on a table for a uniform, modern look.
