I love that this gives me a way to easily transport cupcakes without worrying about slippin' and slidin' in the car. It's a lot easier than cramming into a tray, and a much nicer presentation to boot. This is a decent carrier, but not a great one. I've have mine for a couple years now, so here's my advice.
Never, ever, ever carry it by the handle on the top. It will slip or snap at the most inopportune time. Be smart, carry if by the bottom/sides. Do no count on the side snaps to hold the lid in place if being carried by the top handle. Those will break off. Those hinges do a good job of keeping the lid in place during transport, and that's about it. This is plastic, therefore fragile. Do not drop this, or toss it around like a kids toy and expect it to survive for long.
Treat it right, and it will keep your cupcakes safe n happy for a few years.
The carrier is adorable. The way the 3 trays fit inside is very creative and a good use of space. However, the plastic clips that hold the lid down broke after the first use...both sides!. I did not abuse the clips, they just broke. I'm now using a bungee cord to keep the lid attached to the base. I don't have any regrets because the carrier is cute and practical...but if you are concerned about quality, don't get it.
Imagine my surprise when I opened the shipment of my stainless steel cookie racks to discover they are chrome. Target needs to update their description. Now I have to spend my time this weekend taking them back to the store.
