Yellow Layer Cake

Baked goods should usually be stored in airtight containers to give them the longest shelf life and keep things from becoming stale. Airtight containers will keep cookies crisp and chewy and keep cakes moist and fresh tasting much longer than simply leaving them out on the counter. During the summer, however, keeping your baked desserts in an airtight container can actually create some unexpected problems, ... Read More »

Cake carriers are a must-have tool for bakers who want to be able to easily transport their goodies from one place to another.

Cakes and cupcakes are carefully placed in cake carriers to be delivered to parties, potlucks and other celebrations.

Vintage Cake and Cupcake Carriers

Vintage Cupcake Carrier

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.
