Carrying Cupcakes in Style
Gone are the days of cardboard boxes— these nifty cupcake carriers keep frosting and sprinkles intact, even on frenzied Metro trips and bumpy car rides.
After too many cupcake-dilemma-induced headaches, frustrated mom Jennifer Gunn came up with the idea, and she now sells the triple-tiered carrying case online in translucent shades of petal pink, saffron yellow, sky blue, and lemongrass; each case holds 36 cupcakes. On the NBC comedy The Office, the Cupcake Courier is a favorite of character Pam Beesley. Actress Jenna Fischer, who plays Beesley (and is Gunn's real-life cousin-in-law) hypes it on her MySpace page.
The Cupcake Courier is available at cupcakecourier.com. The Crate & Barrel carrying case can be found at the store’s five area locations and crateandbarrel.com. The Oneida case is available at Bed Bath & Beyond stores.
