You can get cake/cupcake carriers at Wal-mart and the grocery store - they’re not as cute as these, but they are cheap.

You’re right, they are not as cute as these ones.

I found these really good, disposable cup cake carriers. I ordered them on line from a company called http://www.wesellcoffee.com  It isn’t just coffee…and they have a great selection of cake boxes, carboard circles and , yes, disposable cup cake carriers.  I’ve stocked up on boxes and circles.  I was spending a fortune at NY cake and baking buying gold cake circles and boxes just a few at a time.  I don’t have a lot of storage space, but I made room for the boxes, circles and cupcake carriers…in this case it was really worth it.

Mona:
I use tons of cake circles…so I bought this huge box of them on line…I have them stashed discreetly all over my tiny apartment (in a stock pot, in a book cabinet with a door, some in my night stand…I know its silly…but they are sooo expensive at NY cake and baking (best place in NYC to get this stuff)...and all it is is some cardboard with gold foil on it…buying in bulk worked well here.  Buying them online was great…they were delivered right to my door. Gotta love that.

Hi all,
I’ve not introduced myself formally, but since stumbling onto this forum 4 or 5 days ago, I’ve been a bit of an addict.  Anyway, I do have the cupcake courier.  It works for someone who needs to transport lots of cupcakes (more than a dozen) and don’t have the convenience to buy cake boxes and cupcake liners.  Of course, she’d have to get the courier back.  I just recently took a Wilton cake decorating class and turns out that this courier was the one box that fit my finished cake!  My round cake carrier was too short (about 4” high) and ended up denting my fondant covered cake!

To easily transport dozens of cupcakes, under bed storage boxes lined with a non-skid liner work very well and are easy to stack if needed.

I was at last week and I picked up a cupcake carrier.  It is called the cupcake courier.  It kind of looks like the Wilton carrier, rectangular but it has 3 stackable plastic trays that look like muffin tins. (only they are not as deep, so taking the cupcakes out is easy.)  It has a large plastic dome which covers the top and locks into place at the bottom.  You can safely transport 36 cupcakes or muffins.  It was $24.99.  I saw the same one on-line at Golda’s Kitchen but it was more expensive.  I think it will be perfect for taking cupcakes to my kids school for special treats.

My favourite stores are Winners and Home Sense.  They have alot of wonderful baking supplies and the prices are quite a bit less than alot of other stores.  They especially have a great selection around the holidays.  (christmas, easter, halloween, valentines days)  I have seen nordic ware fancy bundt pans there, 10 cup capacities for $24.99 and I have also seen chicago metal products,  Lots of wilton products, and numerous numerous kitchen gadgets!!!  I haven’t seen any magic line cake pans,  but I keep hoping as that is what I want to replace my cake pans with.  These stores are constantly changing their products so sometimes it is by chance that you find something.  It gives me an excuse to go often!!

Liza, I love shopping at Winners and HomeSense too. I have got lots of baking stuff from them. As you mentioned, they change their inventory weekly, so when you see something you like, you have to pick it up right away or you run the risk of not getting it later. Their prices are definitely better than Golda’s. I have never seen Magic Line pans though. They do carry lots of Chicago Metallic pans. I would love to get my hands on some Magic Line pans. If you ever find a retailer that carries it, please let me know.
