One Carrier. Plenty of Uses.

IMG_20013

I’ve shown you guys this Cupcake Courier before. It’s been awhile, but I still love it and I wanted to show you a couple more ways you can enjoy it.

Christmas Cupcakes

First and foremost, it carries cupcakes.

IMG_20014

It can hold 36 cupcakes. Or 24 or 12 or any amount in between. Just remove the stackable trays to suit your need.

Perfect for larger batches of cupcakes or taking them to a holiday party or get together.

IMG_20015

And if you remove all three trays…

IMG_5355

Then you can use it for cakes. And pretty big ones, too.

But here is the best part. The real reason I have fallen deeper in love with this carrier. It allows me to do much more when it comes to carrying my baked goods.

Christmas Tree Cake Pops

I am talking specifically about cake pops here. Yep, because the courier is so tall, it triples as a handy dandy cake pop courier, too.

It serves multiple purposes. One… it simply allows you to store them upright without having to wrap them in treat bags.

And two… it allows you to carry them more easily to happy recipients. With or without treat bags.

Here … let me show you what I mean.

IMG_20012

Tah dah. Perfectly protected pops. Of course you’ll have to imagine them made for full effect. I just used sticks and styrofoam to illustrate the idea.

IMG_20011

If you use 6-inch paper lollipop sticks (8-inch sticks would be too tall) and some styrofoam, it will fit just fine in the base of the courier.

IMG_2001

Styrofoam blocks come in many sizes and one of the common sizes is 4 x 12 x 2 inches high. Grab two of them and place them side by side on the base and then make 12 holes in each block. You can then easily carry 24 cake pops. And if you can’t find the styrofoam in that size, then cut down a larger piece of styrofoam to 8 X 12.

Either way it’s a great way to get more out of an already handy product. You can find them on amazon.com.

Hope that helps all you guys that are cake popping and cupcake making… and of course, carrying.

And to celebrate finding ways to do more with less, here’s a fun giveaway.

I don’t have anything remarkable to contribute. I actually can’t think of a darn thing.

I did just recently get a great present for my birthday- it’s a Williams Sonoma embosser. It has a plate that reads from “The Kitchen of Lisa T” I recently made some Star Wars cookies for my son’s birthday treat bags, wrapped them up with one of the labels. All the Moms thought I was a professional baker! I like to fool people like that :)

Having moved so many times with my husband’s job, I’ve learned to pack one kitchen box with everything needed to “get by” with until the moving truck arrived. My box included one large bowl, medium sized pan, a few spatulas, portable hand mixer, measuring spoons and measuring cups! It showed me how little I could get along with — not needing everything I accumulated over the years, that I thought I couldn’t live without! Now, I think twice about purchases that would be nice to have, but don’t really need! A real eye opener!

I do not own a pastry blender (or a food processor), so whenever a recipe calls for me to use a pastry blender to combine cold butter and dry ingredients, I use a cheese grater to grate the butter into the dry ingredients. Works like a charm!

Seriously! You are having awesome giveaways these days!
I found a 3 pack of little mesh drawstring bags at the Dollar store. $1 for 3 and I use them for produce at the grocery store instead of the plastic produce bags. They weigh basically nothing and I use them over and over! Doing my part to go green!!!

Not my original idea (from Martha Stewart) but a secondary use for a bamboo steamer is a pie carrier! It’s probably going to be the primary use for my steamer from now on, since I hardly use it to steam anything.

I make a To-Do list on my phone every day, even on weekends. Although many of my tasks are mundane (of the laundry, workout, grocery variety), it really helps keep me on track & feel more accomplished each day. I also use the same app to keep lists of grocery items for stores I visit infrequently. SUPER handy!

Our family puts a price cap on Christmas presents, so it makes you get really creative to feel like you’re giving a great gift for under $20. Usually we end up making homemade presents, which is a great reminder of how inexpensive things can be when you make them yourself.

I have found that when baking 300 cupcakes in 6 hours it is much easier to have someone help you then to try and do it all by yourself. Sometimes you need to just sit down and take a breath and sip some water.

One way I’ve had to learn to use less is with my baking. In our area, certain extracts and spices are super pricey. So I’ve learned to change up the ingredients on the fly to accomodate using what I have on hand instead.

My Kitchenaid mixer. At first I was really put off by the cost, thinking there was no way it would be worth the money, but now I don’t know how I survived without it. It makes mixing stuff up so much easier and saves time.

My Mom and I live in the same town so we share a lot of baking stuff, like grittles, large cake carrier, waffle makers. Thing that you like to have but don’t use all the time. It’a also great when we need to borrow each others crock pots for large gatherings, you don’t have to have two.

Kirstin said...

Dinner can be one of life’s biggest challenges, thinking far enough ahead to defrost something, buying all the ingredients I need, making new things instead of boring we-eat-this-every-week meals. So, I find it helps to sit down once a month with a blank calendar sheet I have printed off the computer and fill in meals for every day of the month. I compare it to my real calendar when planning so I know when the crunch days will be, when I will want to go out, etc. Then I can grocery shop for the whole month (except for the weekly fresh stuff) and I don’t have to think every day, I just follow the calendar on the fridge.

I cannot live without my ‘to do’ lists… Also, I tend to get sidetracked while cleaning, so I’ll put a CD in the stereo and limit myself to one activity for a few songs and one CD for a whole room. I choose CDs I’m familiar with so that I know when to pick up the pace!

We use the foil pie pans as a steamer mechanism when we do tamales. We poke holes on the bottom of it, flip it upside down and put it in the bottom of a tall pasta pot, add water and a perfect steamer :)

I am much more productive when my 5 little ones really want something and I can say ‘okay, but first this room needs to be clean’. Then we all scurry around like mad. My most productive tactic. This got my 10 and 13 yr old boys to set the table for dinner in about 13 seconds flat so they could play with a friend until dinner was done!

Mason Jars are great for organizing, canning, sharing gifts, etc. My new favorite is unbaked pies (pumpkin cream pie, cherry cheesecake) in a jar. Easy to share with others and super cute. Also you can screw a lid to the bottoms of shelves in laundry rooms, craft rooms for easy organization. Love them.

Well, I almost wish you were giving away the cupcake courier, but I guess a phone is just as well. ;-)

I have found that by keeping a list of all the things I have to do for the week/day and constantly adding to it every time I think of something then I always have something to check when I have a few moments and want to get something done. (instead of sitting on the couch and zoning for a while)

One thing that dawned on me recently when I wanted to make some shish kabobs… I don’t have a grill or a grilling pan, so I just lined a baking sheet with tinfoil and then used a metal cooling rack on top of the sheet, sprayed with a little non-stick cooking spray. There was about a half inch between the rack and the baking sheet, so I didn’t even need to flip my steak kabobs at all and got the great “grill” lines, to boot!

Old tip, but one that makes me very happy in the mornings. My coffeepot doesn’t have an automated timer, but I set it up before I go to bed so all I have to do is hit the “on” button before hopping in the shower. Hot cup of coffee right out of the shower is the way to start the day!

To be more productive AND make do with less I clip coupons and organize them in a handy case. Then I plan the next weeks meals and make a shopping list using those coupons.

Living in a smallish NYC apartment, I don’t have a lot of room for kitchen gear (BOO!) so I’ve learned to be very … flexible… with what a recipe says is needed, and what I actually use. As long as you don’t mind a bit of mess, I’ve found I can do most things with limited resources – it just may take a few more “transfers” than a recipe originally calls for!

Oh that tray looks amazing. I made cake pops as soccer balls for our kids soccer team and they were such a hit that a carrier like that would be awesome carrying them around.
One thing that I am finding more uses for is the ceral box boxes. I lost some kid homework and got my daughter in trouble so I have been taking boxes and butting them up into letter holders for next to their backpacks so we can file up all those things I need to be signing. Between three kids there is a lot of homework.
Then we took those scraps and made cutouts for printmaking cards and invitations to a party.
We had a lot of boxes saved up.

You know the little gadget for slicing hardboiled eggs? I use that to slice anything that’ll bit into it. It’s perfect for strawberries, mushrooms, butter, hunk of cheese, and of course eggs!
Another love I have is page protectors! When I print off a recipe it goes into a page protector. I can pull the paper out and make notes; the recipe stays clean when I’m cooking; and I can put them into a binder and pull them out when I need them! Nifty, huh?

We do more with less through DIY projects! I use tin-type trays and what would have been a built-in custom spice rack in my SewZone to help with extra thread spools, notions, and such. When I can’t find a perfect something for what I need, then I sketch up some simple plans and build it myself to save $$.

There’s the added satisfaction of having done it ourselves. :)

…I would have to say I have become diligent with clipping coupons, watching the store sales ads and planning my menu weekly by what is on sale that week. That is quite the change for me from before as I was always a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda gal when it came to that stuff… :o)

…Love the carrier! I have placed it on my Amazon Wish List… :o)

…Thanks for the chance to win and blessings too… :o)

Parchment paper is my lifesaver. I always use sheets of it whenever I bake anything which means the clean up time on my cookies sheets is way less and way easier! I keep finding new ways to use it, too, to cut down on messy cleanups. It’s amazing stuff!

Well, today (Nov 15th) is my birthday…. so hopefully the random number generator Gods will be on my side when this contest is up. I have always wanted one of these.

One way we make more with less, it homemade holiday decorations. Every year about the first weekend of December, we invite the relatives over, and the kids and relatives make loads of paper snowflakes and paper chains out of scrap paper we have been saving up all year. It makes for beautiful decorations and a great family tradition and we don’t end up buying loads of stuff in store that we simply don’t need.

I’m just soaking up all the great ideas from everyone else. My only contribution is my way of distirbuting my Christmas cookies. I make my famous sugar cookies and put together a basket with undecorated cookies, containers of frosting and candies. Each recipient enjoys decorating with their family at their convenience and I’m not spending hours trying to be creative with each cookie. A win win!!

I do this a lot with baking. But, there was a tool chest in my apartment and belongs to my dad. It was a big standing one that took up a lot of space. I converted it to my jewelry case.

I hate it when rolling out dough on a cutting board the darn thing slides around all over the place. I started putting my silpat underneath the cutting board…and no more slipping!

love that carrier! i always am looking for ways to transport desserts without taking away from their appearance. my way of being more productive is to make a list of things to do and a schedule – so with baking if i need to make a few different things i can make cake in the morning, cookies while it cools, and icing later on, etc.

I make baked goods for holiday gifts. It takes a while to bake and assemble, but in the end, it’s so much more cost efficient!

I use my baby’s bottle brush to clean out wine glasses, flutes and small juice glasses. It gets to the bottom and cleans perfectly!

I recently went through all my bowls (many) in my kitchen and got rid of most of them leaving only the ones that were stacking sets. This has made a huge difference in the organization of my cupboard and while it was hard to let go of some of those bowls I didn’t think I could live without. Life is now much easier.

I dont own a cookie pan, I use my muffin tin. All the cookies come out EXACTLY the same size, and I didnt have to buy another pan.

Upcycling! It allows me to take old clothing or linens and crochet them into beautiful gifts for others! It doesn’t get much better!

I use baking soda to clean EVERYTHING and it’s amazing. I’m in love with it. I don’t have to buy cleaning products anymore, just a huge thing of baking soda at Costco.

Not an original idea but ziploc bags of all sizes-I use for grandkid’s art supplies, cake pop,cookie and cupcake decorations, odds and ends in my purse, game pieces, note cards and pens, the list goes on and on. Great organizational tool.

I’m most productive when I have music or the television on so that I can’t hear others around me….strange but it works!
