Go Go Cupcase Cupcake Holder
Any parent who has a child with a restricted diet due to a food allergy or Celiac’s, knows how difficult it is to attend family and friend functions, because you just never know about the food being served. For my peanut allergic daughter, Bean, we always bring a safe treat from home to friend’s birthday parties and family events. So many times, the cake or dessert is not safe for her to eat. Our go-to goodie is always cupcakes. She loves cupcakes. I have heard other allergic parents make cupcakes, and freeze them so they always have a short notice goodie to take with them. My biggest complaint is that a frosted cupcake is so hard to transport! They get smashed or they tip over and frosting gets all over. I knew there had to be a better way to transport them!
Range Kleen sent me an Go Go Cupcase Cupcake Holder to review. Their website claims that the “adorable GO GO cupcake case is designed to keep frosting and toppings in tact, even if you toss it in a lunch box or let it bounce around on your passenger seat!” I have to admit, I was very leery of those claims.
When I opened the box, my first thought was that it really was very cute! Even if it didn’t work, it would be a very adorable way of transporting a cupcake. My neighbor, Kelly, loves to bake and makes the yummiest and prettiest cupcakes! I brought the Go Go Cupcase Cupcake Holder over to show her, and she agreed to make some yummy cupcakes for the review. Aren’t they pretty? They taste as good as they look!
So we inserted a cupcake into the holder. There is a special bottom so that the cupcake fits snug into the case. There is a point in the top of the cupcake case the holds the cupcake in place.
So after we put the cupcake in, we decided to test out their claim of “keep frosting and toppings in tact, even if you toss it in a lunch box or let it bounce around on your passenger seat”. My daughter, Bean, drops things all the time, so we decided to put it through the ultimate test. We knocked the cupcase, with the cupcake inside, right off the counter onto a ceramic tile floor, then dropped it repeatedly (like 8 times) from various heights on to the same floor, and finally rolled it around on the counter. We were figured it would simulate it rolling around on the seat of the car, being in a lunch box, and getting tossed around and dropped. We really beat this poor thing up! We guessed that the cupcake was going to be mush, and all the frosting would be destroyed and stuck to the inside of the cupcase. However, the cupcase took the beating and never broke or popped open, AND the cupcake was still in one piece! The frosting was a little messed up, but for what we put it through, it still looked really good! We were both happily surprised and very IMPRESSED!! What we did is far worse than anything it would actually go through. We were REALLY surprised that the cupcase could take that much of a beating, and still keep the cupcake safe!
For anyone with a food restriction, this is a MUST have! This Go Go Cupcase Cupcake Holder is a great way to transport a cupcake for a party (Easter!), family function, on the go, or even in a lunch bag! They can be purchased in quantities of 1, 2, or 6. They have two different colors available too, since boys probably won’t want pink. They are also reasonably priced!
As I browsed through their website http://www.rangekleen.com, I saw lots of other great on-the-go items, and many other useful products too. Their items include parts to repair electric or gas stoves, bakeware & broiler pans, cookware, cleaning, decorative items, other on the go items, seasonal, specialty, and storage and organization products! Their site has so many useful and necessary things at affordable prices! Check them out & give them a like on Facebook!
