My Baking Must Have! The Cupcake Carrier EVERY Mom Should Own!

It was 2006 and it was Johnny’s birthday. There I was standing outside the school with a newborn in his stroller and two cupcake carriers with 12 cupcakes in each container because I needed a minimum of twenty cupcakes for the class. I knew that this wasn’t going to work and that there had to be another way. Having already invested in these carriers I wasn’t sure what I could do. Then three months later my house burnt down and I was determined not to buy the things that drove me nuts again.

The cupcake carries were on that list. When it was time to move back in I needed everything. Honestly, the retail therapy really did wonders for the 12 months of depression that fell after the fire. Hubby insisted we not buy anything until we were able to be in our own home. So that’s what we did. We spent half the time living out of a bedroom at my in-laws I figured I could make it a little longer in the rental. So, for a couple weeks before we moved back into our house I started hunting. I was able to go on a shopping spree and it lasted about a month. I went to a lot of stores and stumbled upon this awesome carrier and fell in love.

Bed Bath & Beyond allows you to use as many coupons as you have items (or add up to $15 with the $5 coupons) and I had spent the last year saving them. Family member gave them to me too. I was loaded. So when I saw that it was $29.99 and I could use a coupon I was sold. It cost the same for the ones that only hold 12. So when I have to get 100 cupcakes over to the baseball fields for the league party it’s so easy (I have two).

I definitely didn’t want them to get damaged. Plus, since I made them the day before I needed an air tight container to store them in. These are perfect!

I really like that my carrier also turns into instant platters. The base can also be used for a cake. One you can even decorate because the high cover. The cupcakes sometimes can’t have toppers until later, but it’s worth it.

When it’s time to transport them just stack it all up.

Place the cover on and lock the sides. It even has a handle!

This post is not sponsored and I bought my carriers I’m just completely in love with them. I’m stopped all the time to ask where I got mine but sadly they aren’t carried by BB&B anymore. Amazon is the only place I can find them. They have a Cupcake Courier Cupcake Caddy in White Translucent
and in Soft Blue Sky
. They use to have a pink one too but I couldn’t find it anywhere.
Reader found it in Petal Pink
πŸ™‚ and in Saffron Yellow

If you have small kids I highly recommend this carrier. I couldn’t imagine using anything else. It worked awesome for my 3D Skull Cake too!


  1. Thank you for posting this. I was just talking to someone the other day and mentioned I really wanted to invest in a cupcake carrier. I love making cupcakes and decorating them. I just had a hard time getting them places without something happening.

  2. Thanks for sharing! I need one badly & honestly, that one seems perfect!

  3. Erin says

    OOh! Thanks for this post. I love unsponsored reviews – really lets me know you LOVE an item. That is cool, I do a lot of transporting cupcakes too!

  4. Lindsay says

    I have been looking everywhere for a huge cupcake carrier! This is perfect. Thanks!

  5. Melinda-LooKWhatMomFound..and Dad too! says

    I like that it holds a higher capacity! mine is decent but not awesome, i’m still on the hunt for something better. Will check these out next time i’m in BBB

  6. I’ve been looking for a carrier for awhile now and I love how big this one is! I’ll definitely be looking at it once I’m ready to buy, thanks for sharing!

    That is a mega cupcake carrier. I have the 24 cupcake carrier version (two of those to be exact).
    They are a lifesaver!!

    (Just watch out because other moms will start asking you to borrow it! =P … that is what happened to me at least!=P )

  8. marybeth @ says

    Yes! My friend just made all the cupcakes for her own wedding and she used these to transport them to the site. They worked beautifully!

  9. Christine M says

    Ohh I def need one of those! No more putting cupcakes in the cake container or keeping them in the muffin pan.

  10. Terra says

    I have the yellow. πŸ˜‰ My husband tried to get rid of it when we moved, and I told him NO way. Even if I use it once a year, it’s enough to keep it.

  11. Daily Woman says

    Thanks for posting, I have never seen one of these and I really need one. I hate trying to get cupcakes on a plate and cover them with wrap without pulling the frosting off. Great find!

  12. i love my cupcake carrier, but this one looks a bit more roomy…we use ours for all our parties…may need to upgrade! πŸ™‚

  13. JulieD says

    I have a cupcake courier and love it too! I wish I had bought that second one on the shelf now that you say BB&B doesn’t have it anymore.

  14. Diane says

    I have that cupcake carrier in blue; it came from a few years ago. It really is the best! It keeps the cupcakes looking perfect and I find that I can even fit the individual trays in the fridge to set the icing on hot days. Definitely a great buy! I love your baseball cupcakes!

  15. jenna says

    I love this! I make cupcakes for my kids’ birthdays and need something like this. Thanks for sharing!!

  16. Amy @ Marvelous Mommy says

    Love that! I want the pink one!

  17. I love the cupcake caddie

  18. Jayme says

    Oh that’s awesome, I want one! I really could have used it tonight- I brought cupcakes to a barbeque πŸ™‚

  19. Those are great! I really need and want one too.

  20. won says

    I have never seen such a thing. It’s brilliant!

  21. Doreen Riopel says

    I love this. It is so awesome. Look at all the cupcakes, it carries. πŸ™‚

  22. Melissa Barnes says

    i have been looking for something just like this for years! I am really surprised that there aren’t more products like this out there. I am going to go check it out at when payday rolls around. So perfect for birthday events – no more smooshed cupcakes and messy icing!!!
    thanks for the post!

  23. jen says

    I got one of these carriers too.. Im a cupcake fanatic. I found mine at Costco, hopefully that will help other readers get this awesome tool. I have made endless amounts of cupcakes already and while you cant have tall toppers (like you mentioned) i put them around the cupcakes and just attach while im putting my cupcakes on my cupcake tree. πŸ™‚

  24. Melissa Williams says

    Thanks for the review! I’ve been looking for a good cupcake holder for awhile now, but I’m always worried about which one to get and if it will work as well as the product info says it will. Currently all my cupcakes always end up touching each other or tipping before we get to our destination, so I definitely have to check this holder out!

  25. Jennifer H says

    So cool! And awesome job on those bball cupcakes!!

  26. Now this is something that I have been wanting for quite some time now.

  27. katklaw777 says

    I soooooooooooo need 3 of these…lol
    I have been looking for a good cupcake carrier for months now and none have come close to what I wanted.
    This one looks perfect…thanks for the heads up and the review.

  28. Charlotte Varner says

    This is one of the most awesome cupcake carriers I’ve ever put my eyes on!

  29. Nancy says

    How do I order this cupcake holder? And how much is it?
