cupcake courier
It was love at first sight when I saw the Cupcake Courier. It holds 36 cupcakes and promises not to let the frosting get smashed. Plus, if you remove all of the cupcake trays you can even transport a cake. Not for sale on their website, I found a blue one on Amazon and I was comforted knowing that it would be there, waiting, until I could justify buying it. But three weeks ago I checked again and ack, it wasn’t on there anymore. Unavailable. And sold out everywhere I turned. Unrequited love is so painful. I finally tracked it down on Bloomingdale’s website only in pink. Good, because that’s the color I wanted anyway. And I thought I had it. The. Last. One. But no, I was wrong. They sent me an email apologizing for getting my hopes up because, unfortunately, it was out of stock. If you know me or if you’ve read my blog for more than one day, you KNOW that I’m always trying to make small improvements in my life to help save the planet. I cringe every time I go to pick up cupcakes for a party and I use another disposable box. A) It costs the bakery unnecessary money and B) I know the box is going to end up in the trash with all of the hustle and bustle of the party set up. But a little more internet sleuthing did produce one for me from Preppy Prints Baby Boutique. In pink. And now I just have to wait for it to arrive. Ahh, love conquers all.


  1. This is currently on sale (in white/clear) at Williams Sonoma ($19.99).

  2. Mikaela: Seriously? I looked everywhere for that and I guess it was right under my nose all along. And on sale. Ugh.

  4. I am also dreaming of having some cupcake couriers. Try my favorite site for finding stores that carry a particular item: It doesn’t show everything, but it certainly gives me some more options than I would have found on my own. Good luck, and let us know how you like it when you get to try it out..

  5. Hi there. This post made me smile so much. The cupcake carrier was my hands-down favorite holiday gift this year! I think I "sell" 10 of them each time I haul treats to one of my kids’ schools & the other moms ooh, ahh, and ask about it. I have found it’s also great for taking delicate cut-out cookies for a spin–I just place my silpats on the trays & they don’t slip around. Isn’t it the best?

  7. Costco carries these and they are much less there than anywhere else I have seen them. Michaels also has them and with a 40% off coupon it’s not so bad.
