If you spend a lot of time making custom cupcakes the last thing you are going to want to do is risk transporting them in a box where they could slide around. The trouble with most cupcake holders and carriers is the size of them when they aren't being used. This cupcake container can carry about two dozen regular sized cupcakes and about fifty mini tart sized cupcakes. You do need to make sure that the two sections are connected together correctly or you will end up with cupcakes falling out of the bottom section. The top and bottom sections are clear but over time this can get hazy if you wash it out with a scrubber pad. I have never had any problems with this carrier regardless of how it was used; if you need to transport a cake or want something to protect sweets during the summer when having picnics or parties outside this is a good pick because of the size of it and that the sections can be stacked with little effort.
