You Take the Cake

Living about a hundred steps from the famed Billy’s Cupcakes presents many problems, but transporting the fragile creations home is not one of them. After a short walk, they’re safely in my kitchen — and then my mouth — without incident. But not everyone has the advantage of proximity.

For them, there’s Cup-a-Cake, a cleverly devised container that holds the frosted cake in place with protrusions positioned so that it won’t move around the container if bounced or turned upside down. No longer must anyone suffer the fate of a discombobulated or unsightly cupcake. It’s ideal for picnics and lunch boxes and visits to grandma, and its colorful design is vaguely reminiscent of the early iMacs.

Now if only they can invent a cupcake holder that sucks out the calories.
