Cake and cupcake carriers are staples for home bakers. Not only do they make it easy to transport your goodies from place to place without disturbing all of that frosting, but they provide a convenient, airtight environment to store them in and keep them fresh. Cook’s Country magazine rated cake carriers recently and decided that the Progressive Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier was their top pick, as was easy to use, easy to store and help up to 24 cupcakes, in addition to 1 large layer cake.
Progressive International isn’t limiting itself to cake carriers, however, and the Collapsible Pie Carrier is proof of that. This carrier has the same design as the cake carrier – with silicone insets in the lid that allow the container to collapse fairly flat for storage – and it can hold two pies inside, thanks to a removable tray that creates more holding space inside. If you have a larger pie, or a meringue-topped pie, the tray creating the second tier is removable, so your meringue won’t need to squish into a small space. The tray is also double sided and will hold things like deviled eggs or other appetizers if you’re taking something savory to a party with you.
Overall, the pie carrier is a great idea and it’s nice to know that, because it is collapsible, you’ll probably be able to make room for it in the kitchen. It keeps pies much more secure than other pie-storage options (usually covering with plastic wrap and simply carrying the pie, hoping not to disturb it too much), is easy to transport and is large enough to store other foods, so you’ll get use out of it even when you’re not baking pies.
