Does anyone have any ideas how to best wrap individual cupcakes for a bake sale that won't mess up the icing on top? Any ideas would be appreciated.

If you get the tall squared-off treat bags, you can put a square of cardboard or card stock at the bottom of it to keep the shape, and you can sit the cupcake on that square. You could even "glue" the liner to the card with icing, perhaps.

You can also order small boxes...I don't know if the expense would be worth it for you....but they really look nice in the boxes.

I have seen them in clear boxes too. They kind of look like a Chinese take-out boxes only clear. Like SG said, I don't know if the expense of them would make a profit in the end or not????

that's the ones I'm talking about bunny.....a store here sold the large cupcakes in them and they were a big hit, especially when they were decorated with the different school colors.

Thanks for the good ideas. I think I will try the cardstock in the bottom of one of those clear treat bags.

If you are using the clear bags, try to find the ones that are gusseted. They will sit better.

I have seen the clear boxes that Bunnywoman mentioned at the dollarama store. I picked up some in a winter theme. The cost was 3 for a dollar.They also had them decorated for other holidays. I am in Canada so I don't know about the U.S. Good luck!

I have sold cupcakes and several bake sales and have placed the cupcakes, without wrapper, into a small clear plastic punch glass, then I decorate them in the cup and then either wrap them with clear wrap or placed them in a goody bag. Sorry i can not attach a photo now, but will when I get to my other computer tonight. I get the cups at the party supply store or hobby lobby. Using this method, your frosting does not get smashed!

Here are some ideas (that have been mentioned above as well)

clear cupcake boxes


white cupcake boxes

Another thing you can do is freeze the cupcake after you decorate it. Just enough to get it hard then slip the cupcake in the cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon. It should be thawed in time for the bake sale and no icing sticking to the bag.

They are probably quite pricey though...
