I am not sure what made me think of this originally, but I have been doing it for many years now. My kids have always liked having a cupcake in their lunch but they would either get smooshed or the frosting would get stuck to the baggies. This simple and completely free idea solves the whole problem.
The container on the bottom has cupcake liners in it. The container on the top has a cupcake in it. When you bake your cupcakes save the container and use it to transport cupcakes in your lunch.
You can see from the above shot, there is still plenty of room left for more frosting on the cupcake.
The best part is that if the cups don’t come back home, it is no big deal you will have more the next time you bake cupcakes.
