Single cupcake holders that work!

Posted on October 20th, 2009 by Alison Read 7 Comments - Add Your Own »

If you have a gluten-free child or a child with food allergies, you are no stranger to packing his or her “special” cupcake to bring to a birthday party. The challenge is how to send one cupcake and not smush it! I have found the answer my friends… Go Go Cupcake Holders!


These cupcake holders are awesome! Not only are they cute, but they really hold the cupcake in place with a perfectly tight fitting bottom and a spike in the top so the frosting doesn’t get smashed. Stick it in a backpack or hand it to your kid to take to the party (just make sure the latch is completely closed).

Here is a picture from the last time I used them:


The best part is that they are cheap: $6.99 for 2 on Amazon!

  1. Wow, super cool find Alison! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. Nothing like keeping the child with the “different” cupcake safe and making them feel extra special–way cool!


  4. Awesome – so cute! I use a cup-a-cake holder but it pierces the cake a little too much for me. Gotta get some of these for Bella – it seems like there’s always some kind of celebration in her class 🙂

  5. They work fantastic!! I have 2 sons with food allergies, and when there is a child’s birthday coming up in their class, their teachers send me an email. I grab one of the cupcakes (I made ahead of time) out of the freezer – and put it in one of these carriers. By the time the party comes around at school, their cupcake is thawed and ready for them to eat!

  6. KW,
    Are your boys okay with the pink carrier? I was thinking boys may not like these!

  7. Alison – I actually found these carriers at a store – it’s been a while – but I believe it was at Williams Sonoma. They had other color choice options. All 4 I have are tan on the bottom, and 2 look like Chocolate frosting, and 2 look like Vanilla. I will look around and see if I can find exactly where I bought them and let you know – because – NO, my boys would not carry around a pink cupcake holder. 😉
