Progressive International Collapsible Cupcake And Cake Carrier Review
The Progressive International Collapsible Cupcake And Cake Carrier Review
The Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier is just the item every creative cupcake maker needs to transport their creamy creations. One of the frustrations of a cupcake or cake decorator is transporting their cakes to the delivery location. Most cake carriers do not take into consideration the need for space between the cupcakes or cake for specialty frostings and towering decorations. The Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier has two levels of cupcake trays that hold 24 cupcakes, with finger holds to help remove the cupcakes without smashing the icing. The interior trays can be removed to transport either round or square cakes, and the base is marked with a slicing key for evenly sliced pieces of cake. The lid to the carrier is collapsible for storage convenience, even though the carrier holds two layers of cupcakes it is only 5 inches tall when collapsed in the cabinet for storage. Included is also a carrying handle that detaches and clips to secure the base to the cover of the carrier. This item is dishwasher safe.
The Negative Reviews
The most common complaint regarding the Progressive International Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier was the flimsiness of the carrier handle. Several consumers noted the handle was an accident looking for a place to happen and many had the accident occur, ruining their culinary cupcake creation. Other customers stated the smooth surface of the base of the holder did not prevent the cupcakes from sliding when the cover of the carrier was off. However, they did report that with the cover on the carrier the cupcakes were fairly secure. Some customers did report the cupcakes flipped and ruined the decorative icing because of the sliding factor.
The Positive Reviews
Most of the comments for the Progressive International Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier were very positive; there were over 100 positive reviews. Customers love the collapsible feature of the carrier; with cupboard space at a premium this container only takes up 5 inches of vertical space when collapsed. Several customers like the versatility of the carrier; without the tiers the Cake Carrier will carry either a round cake or even a square layer cake, with the tiers it will hold 24 heavily iced cupcakes. The locks on the side of the carrier are secure and the plastic case does not stain, even from black cupcake dye. The customers remarked upon the attractiveness of the container also and stated there was nothing else like it on the market for the price or convenience.
The Progressive International Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier has very positive reviews and is a good value in price and functionality; we recommend this purchase. The creative folding collapsible design allows for a minimal storage footprint. The wipe clean plastic makes a nice container that shows cupcakes at their prettiest. Experienced cooks noted they could place a four layer cake inside the carrier and still had the decorations intact when the cake arrived at the party. The additional bonus is that this product is dishwasher safe, making it easy to clean at the end of the day.
