So you've made a delicious batch of cupcakes that you want to share with the world! Do you use your super-specific individual cupcake holder and your snap-on-snap-off carrying case?! Ok, or perhaps you're not a tupperware fanatic such as myself who spends 30 minutes in the tupperware isle at the grocery store trying to rationalize the purchase of more tupperware and who has an entire shelf in her tiny kitchen for just tupperware.... I mean, who needs plates or cups?!
Well it's as easy as a stop at the local grocery store or Target for some Ziploc! I've found their sauce container to be the perfect size for an average cupcake or their salad size has room for two cupcakes. You can get four for under $4, and plus, they're also reusable for holding salad dressings or mini chicken wontons. Rationalized for practically sake! You're welcome - rationalizing the purchase of tupperware is what I do!!
Additionally, you can take a cue from Dots and throw the cupcakes into a random box and surround them with festive tissue paper to keep them from tipping over. If you really want to take it to the next level, you can pick up a four pack of these cute cupcake boxes from Michaels - big enough for five cupcakes or one-two jumbo cupcakes. This really makes cupcakes as a birthday present extra special.
Whatever option works for you - enjoy! Oh, sweet cupcakes containers, how I love thee!!
