I have a great recipe for using ritz crackers. It calls for a soft frosting. I need something to transport 2-3 dz without them being stacked. I don't want to take two cookie sheets. It's too difficult to handle. Even with using the cookie sheets, I would have to be very careful that the foil didn't touch the crackers. I don't care for trying to put them in the slots for deviled eggs. They don't really fit. Any suggestions? It sure would make me happy - and others too! Thanks!
Just curious...can you transport the bare crackers and frosting packaged seperately and then frost when you arrive?
Yes, that could work, but it's not what I want to do. We enjoy our time with friends when we first enter and just want to have fun. There has to be an answer to this! Thanks for trying!
Are you looking for something like this? I found it on Amazon.
Cupcake Courier 36-Cupcake Plastic Storage Container
Cupcake courier for transporting up to 36 cupcakes at a time
3 stackable trays, each with 12 deep cups to securely hold cupcakes
Comfortable carry handle; 4 bottom latches secure the base in place
Doubles as cake courier with trays removed
Available in a variety of colors
Tupperware makes a cupcake carrier. It has 18 depressions for the cakes. You could place a cracker in each one, cover that layer with foil-covered cardboard to hold at least that many more on a top layer.
(Tupperware sure isn't bargain-priced, though!)
What about inexpensive plastic serving plates covered with plastic wrap?
I have a bare-bones Tupperware container that will hold a two-stacker platform for pies. Similar concept to the cupcake carrier Still Tryin posted.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
I line a "shirt box" with waxed paper, place the cookies/crackers in one single layer and put the lid on. The box is deep enough that the lid will not touch the crackers. Use as many boxes as necessary.
I often transport things this way and take a pretty plate along on which to display them.
When I want to tote my TX Sheet Cake, I use the cake box that I got from Safeway many years ago. It would hold a lot of cupcakes.
I agree, Tupperware ain't cheap. I'm betting I have that same piece that Sherry has. I think it's for carrying two pies. There are 3 pcs. to the unit. The large round bottom, the lid, and the shelf for Pie II that gets inserted after placing Pie I in the bottom unit. I think I got it at a Tupperware Party back in the 60's. Tupperware may be expensive, but it lasts forever!
Sherry, didn't it come with some kind of a flexible/removable handle to carry it with? I sort of remember that, but I have no idea where it might be. I haven't seen it in years!This message has been edited. Last edited by: CA Lori,
Hi Deeanna, I think you could improvise something if you have a square container large enough. Take pieces of cardboard (or poster board from the dollar store) and cut to fit box, leaving an inch or two more on each side. Bend that extra length into an L shape so there is sort of a flat bottom. You just need height enough to accommodate each layer of frosted crackers and you don't need something permanent. Just something you can carry upright.
No. Mine has no handle. It's also larger than the regular cake tote. I place my cake in the bowl part and cover with the lid.
Found it on eBay!
Edited to add:
And you can't put a meringue covered pie on the bottom. Well...you can, but it won't be pretty. AMHIK
I use it to stir up a batch of fruitcakes - 2 tube pans or 4 loaf pans...hmmm...THAT sounds good! LOLThis message has been edited. Last edited by: KeepYouInStitches,

What about pop can flats. Line them with paper toweling or foil, cut notches in one so you can stack another flat crosswise.
Try using waxed paper to cover if the flats are tall enough so the frosting doesn't touch.
At least you can throw them away when you're done.
Or how about a pizza box.
I take Vegetable Pizza to many potlucks in a Pizza Hut box. Several times the kids come along before hand and remark that at least there is pizza to look forward having. Too bad it isn't the hot meat topped type!
I love grapefruits idea of using a shirt box with one layer in each box. They are inexpensive so they could be disposable. You could stack them up and tie them around with twine and off you go.
Thanks for all your suggestions! I'm impressed! Will try a couple of "homemade" boxes first. I knew I would get help here! I really appreciate everyone who replied.
Lady of shallot, I really like the idea of having a container to reuse. However, with the cupcake slots being deep, I believe it would be difficult to remove the crackers without messing up the icing. Thanks though!
I always have several shirt boxes on hand and have used them for years in order to transport cupcakes, cookies, etc.
Yes, and they are disposable!!! They have always worked for me.
This wasn't my suggestion, Deeanna, mine was the one about the cardboard dividers!
Hope whatever you decide to do works well and be sure to let us know if you have success so we can try the idea too.
