I typically use cake and cupcake carriers both for transporting and storing baked goods. I’ve gone through a variety of carriers over the years, and generally opt for lightweight, plastic containers that have an airtight seal because they are the most versatile and the most durable options for baked good storage. But even the well designed ones don’t qualify as cute (and some don’t even qualify as being particularly attractive), so I will often transfer baked goods to a bakery-style box when bringing them to serve to friends and family for a better presentation. I could just as easily transfer them to either a Glitterville Vintage Cake Carrier or Cupcake Carrier, both of which offer a lot more style than most other baked good transport options! Made of thin metal, these carriers have a very cute, retro look to them. The Cake Carrier measures 13 x 7-inches, which makes it large enough to handle most layer cakes, while the 14.5 x 10.5 x 4.5-inche Cupcake Carrier will hold a dozen cupcakes securely within a small rack inside of the carrier. The rack that holds the cupcakes in place is removable, and when taken out this carrier will also hold a sheet cake.
The containers are not airtight, so they’re not as good as most plastic cake carriers when it comes to storage and keeping baked goods fresh, but you can’t beat them on presentation when you arrive at a party or bbq with one of these carriers in hand. They also make a sweet birthday gift if you bring it filled with cake and leave the tin with the birthday girl to use for her own future baking endeavors!
