Serve up some delicious holiday treats in style with MEL's Confection Carrier. The Small Confection Carrier features beautiful holly and poinsettia designs and measures 9" in diameter and is 3" tall - making it a great option for a plate of cookies. 

The Large Confection Carrier is decorated with fun pumpkins and the pretty vine to add even more details.  It is 12" in diameter and 3.5" tall, giving your famous holiday pie plenty of room.

Both carriers open like a picnic basket and feature a drawstring top to bring it all together neatly and protect your precious cargo. The handles make for easy carrying and the removable base means every last detail is beautiful, even the inside!

Make extra removable bases to decorate your kitchen or use as hot pads for all that delicious holiday food.

The bases fit snugly and give your carrier a nice bottom while still being removable for easy clean up!

MEL is excited to use her carriers for her famous Pumpkin Pie and Shortbread Cookies! What will yours hold?
