Cup-A-Cake

We love the entrepreneurial spirit especially when coupled with a great design idea.

This container solves a long time problem. It will hold a frosted cupcake in place with internal, bonded holders which are positioned in such a way that the cupcake will not move within the container if jiggled or turned upside down! No frosting lost! From Cup-A-Cake.
