#2: Collapsible cupcake carrier

Over 500 customer reviews of which 87% had given a 4 star and above rating.

  • Collapsible design. This space saving feature allows you to easily store it in the kitchen cabinet without taking too much space.
  • Carries up to 24 cupcakes
  • Downside: Tray don’t interlock with the base which means it intend to slide around after the lid has been put on. This is not ideal as the cupcakes might be damaged during the loading and uploading. This downside is why we put it at #2 rather than #1.

#4: Snapware’s 24 cupcake carrier

snapware 24 cupcake carrier

Snapware is well knows for its line of solid food storage containers. So, why do I put it here rather than the editor’s choice? Read on.

  • Carries up to 24 cupcake cakes
  • Deep holes in trays to prevent movement of cupcake cakes
  • Stackable like the Vonshef model above
  • Downside #1: Plastic used here is a bit flimsy so it tends to break easily if you drop it on the floor
  • Downside #2: Clasps are filmsy as well so they can break rather easily if you mishandled them

#5: Wilton cupcake caddy

The Wilton 3 in 1 caddy is on the bottom of the list for one reason only: it can’t do what it is suppose to

  • Cupcake tray is too shallow to prevent cupcakes from moving around and smashing into each other
  • Good for transporting other types of food such as other baked goods but forget about cupcakes in particular
  • Cheap price
  • Solid material
