  1. That is such a handy little carrying case for them! I bet my kids would love to have these mini muffins.

  2. I want to get one of these because I have been using a casserole pan to transport cupcakes which is not the best way to transport treats to school. This would be really nice and wouldn't mess up frosting.

  3. That is such a cool container. I think it would be extra helpful for parties when brining mini cupcakes so that the frosting stays in place.

  4. I really want a Party Serving Kit. It would be so handy for birthday party cupcakes at my son's school.

  5. These are perfect for the holiday season! Thank you for sharing.

  6. I love that!! What a great carrying case and perfect for parties! Save a muffin for me, kay? :)

  7. These are one of my favorite muffins, no matter what day it is! In mini form they are even better!

  8. I love that case!! We are always making mini muffins they are the kids favorites.

  9. Those do look tasty. I love that they're many sized. :)

  10. That is a fantastic container! I am always looking for a good way to transport my deviled eggs.

  11. Cornbread muffins are my favorite! I love that carrier and server too, it's so much better than tinfoil wrapped plates! :)

  12. That would come in incredibly handy for school parties! And I am a huge fan of corn muffins!

  13. Oh my goodness, these are just perfect for our church Thanksgiving. And I love that carrying case. Super-cute. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I do this all the time for the boydhild but I've never thought about doing muffins. That would be a pleasant surprise.

  15. We love cornbread muffins. Sounds amazing & that carrier would be great for the holidays.

  16. My family really enjoys cornbread. That Rubbermaid container looks perfect for carrying mini cornbread muffins or even cupcakes to school for a Thanksgiving feast or kids birthday party.

  17. I make this exact same recipe, but I throw a hot dog in the middle and they become instant corn dogs for kids! The rubbermaid platters are my favorite :)

  18. I love that carry container! That would make things so easy to transport.I have to buy one!
