How-to Make a Clever Cupcake Carrier

Unlike traditional cupcakes, Patriotic Cupcake Cones are top-heavy, making it a bit challenging to transport them to picnics. But you can create your own convenient carriers.

First search for some sturdy cardboard boxes. If they’re flimsy, they won’t hold the heavy cupcake cones.

Measure the diameter of the bottom of a cupcake cone. Draw the same size circles on top of the box, allowing enough room between each. Turn the top over and cut out the circles with a sharp utility knife. Put the top back on the bottom piece. To keep the carrier more secure, you may want to tape the top and bottom pieces together. Set a cupcake cone in each hole.
