A cupcake carrier is a tool that allows a person to easily transport multiple cupcakes at one time. It's equipped to hold and carry numerous cupcakes without compromising individual cupcakes' form or making a mess. The best cupcake carriers can be modified to carry different numbers of cupcakes, are made of silicon or another safe material, have lockable lids and handles and come with lifetime warranties. Their durability and handiness make cupcake carriers a popular gift among amateur and professional bakers.

A cupcake carrier can be useful in any number of ways. Whether you have a large number of cupcakes to transport to parties, picnics or work or school functions, or if you simply want to have a way to keep and organize all of your cupcakes in one place, a cupcake carrier offers an excellent solution. In addition, cupcake carriers can be used to store and move other food such as muffins, rolls or cookies. Cupcake carriers that come with removable trays can double as cake carriers if the trays are removed and space is made for a single cake rather than many cupcakes.

You probably want to consider purchasing a cupcake carrier that can have extra, stacked levels added. For instance, a standard cupcake carrier capable of carrying 12 cupcakes can be purchased, but if you need to transport 24 cupcakes, another level can be purchased to fit onto the cupcake carrier tray. Some cupcake carriers come equipped with this added feature. Carriers made from silicon allow you to choose carriers in different colors. Silicon's composition deters odors from forming and lingering in the carrier.

Lids that lock and handles that provide for easy gripping can ensure easy transport. Locking lids protect cupcakes from elemental damage and keep them fresh. Handles can be located either on top of the carrier or on its sides. Some cupcake carriers come with nonstick baking pans that can be easily inserted into the carrier so that the steps between baking and transporting are reduced. The best carriers are also dishwasher-safe, which makes cleaning up a hassle-free task.

Of course, the best cupcake carriers also come with lifetime warranties. A lifetime warranty can save you money if the cupcake carrier ever is damaged or breaks. You also will save money simply by using cupcake carriers, because the carriers protect the cupcakes and guard against their toppling and the wasting of icing and decorations.
