Dilemma: How to get cupcakes to playgroup without getting icing everywhere or spending a lot of money on a cupcake safe.
Solution: Turn a re-usable plastic container upside down. Use the lid as a tray and the container as the top. Instant cupcake transportation!
My friend Michelle clued us in to this great idea but warned, "Make sure your toddler doesn't grab the container and flip it over yelling, "MOM! You put this upside down!!" or you'll have a huge mess!"
**EDITED** I've received a couple of comments and emails about how this is any different from putting the cupcakes into the container and putting the lid on. Have you ever tried putting cupcakes down into a container? Icing gets on everything! Putting cupcakes on the lid and then setting the container down over them keeps the icing where it belongs, on the cupcake, and leaves much more to get into my belly!
