Lovely cupcakes, the perfect cupcake carrier, and a bright green pot of beans.

A big big thumbs DOWN to that crate and barrel carrier...I have it and want to chuck it in the trash.The only good part is you get a cupcake pan out of it, but the space between the layers isn't enough and any decent frosted cupcakes I bake, they get smooshed into the lid and the top of the second layer. The second layer is flimsy plastic that mine at least, also has a slight bend to it so that doesn't help any.If you want a real cupcake carrier, get that 3 level Cupcake Courier. I need to get one myself!
I had the Target equivalent to the CB cupcake carrier. It sucked. jmorri's comment about the muffin pan is right--that's the *only* upside.I'm a big fan of my Snapware container--I'm not beholden to three dozen, and I can ditch the cupcake tray and use it for cookies or brownies. Infinitely better. Plus, I got it for a screaming deal at Costco--three-layers for $16.
I have the Martha Stewart carrier from Macy's which is exactly like that snapware carrier and I love it.
Three-tiered carrier is where it's at, y'all!
Agreed. The Crate and Barrel/Target carrier sucks. I have the same one and it always smooshes the frosting.
