Look what I bought for ten bucks at Costco the other day! Problem solved!
This has enough room for 3 layers of 12 cupcakes each--a whopping 36 cupcakes total!
I wish I had owned this when my kids still had birthday parties at school and belonged to Scouts, etc. where we often brought snacks. Regardless, this is still a useful container because in addition to transporting cupcakes and muffins, it can be used as a cake carrier (2-layer or up to 9x13" rectangle) and even a cookie carrier.
There are three plastic sheets that go over the cupcake wells to create a more "solid" layer.
I think this is going to get a lot of use when I bring food elsewhere, which is quite often! This could, of course, also be used to carry things other than sweets: side dishes or appetizers, for example. This unit is very well designed, so there shouldn't be any unpleasant spills.

Do you have any tips for transporting food neatly and/or creatively?
