I have one of those I put one whole or half used onion in it. Would not want to use it for a cup cake after that. Onion smell seems to have permiated the plastic. But brand new seems like a good idea. I did purchase cup cake holders at a specialty kitchen store. It is the shape of one decorated cup cake. But I would like the price of the dollar store one better. Sorry don't remember what I paid it was years ago. And the ones I bought do work well, I use to send the kids banana muffins or carrot muffins to school for lunch.

Yah, nothing like a safe cupcake onion flavor. :lol:

For 1$ it also won't hurt if I ever do forget it somewhere..which knowing me I probably will.

Each time I see that first picture I have a moment where I try to figure out what the heck it is!

Great idea and will definitely buy a few since we freeze cupcakes for those last minute events. Hope it is big enough for the cupcakes from our nut-free bakery :happydance

It's pretty big. I might even stick some tooth picks inthe the cupcake base fanning out in 4 directions so it doesn't roll around in transit.

Last time we transported cupcakes, we put the decorated cupcakes back in the cupcake pan and used q-tips (instead of toothpicks) and wrapped the end that was going in the cupcakes and then placed the wrap over that. Then we froze the entire pan. Since the q-tips were soft they did not puncture the wrap but it did look funny when we removed the wrap at our destination :rofl I know there are cupcake holders out there but this worked surprisingly well.

:rofl

I put icing under the cupcake to hold it in place as much as possible. Then I put a twisted paper towel around the edge. Other option, bake jumbo cupcakes. :lol:

My kids are older now, we all love cupcakes but now we cut them in half and put the icing on the inside. Sometimes, we put a surprise inside as well (edible).

Also, now that DD's friends are older now, she likes to make and decorate as an extra gift to take to the party. She decorates them fancy and we drive very carefully so the cakes can make an entrance on a very fancy tiered tray. Even though some are adults now...they still like cupcakes.

I love the cupcake decorating parties where the kids do whatever they want with their own cupcake :happydance

Yes, we buy CakeMate Scribbles and let the kids squeeze it out onto their cupcakes! That and a few sprinkles and their happy. The last Birthday party (10 years old) this and the silly string were the hits of the party-what do you do with 'big' kids?

They make the cupcakes themselves and do the dishes :banana

Legit answer: we bought a birthday cake from our one safe bakery and the kids had that and then we let them stay up as late as they want for a sleepover --- which meant I texted them from my room at 5:30am to tell them to be quiet since they woke me up :swing
