So if an item looks large, is it actually smaller?

It may be smaller. All dimensions are listed. Please use a ruler & compare our container dimensions to your cake, cookies etc..

What is the difference between outer & inner dimensions?

Outer dimensions are the total outside dimensions of the container end to end. This includes all surrounding lips & locks. Inner dimensions are the inside dimensions at the widest point. Please be aware that most containers are slightly tapered to enable stacking. The actual bottom of the container may be slightly smaller than the inner dimensions listed. Bottom dimensions are the dimensions at the bottom of the container

How do I determine which cupcake or muffin container will fit my cupcakes and muffins?

You need the bottom diameter of your cupcake liner & the total cupcake height.

First, measure the bottom diameter of your cupcake liner. Then check the bottom cavity diameter of our cupcake containers. Your liner should be about an 1/8" smaller than the bottom diameter listed for each cavity.
Second, measure your cupcake or muffin from top to bottom. Then check the height listed for every container. Please ensure that you choose a container whose height is greater than your cupcake /muffin. All dimensions are listed as length x width x height. The third set of numbers is the height of the container.

How do I determine which cake dome will fit my cake?

You need the total diameter and total height of your cake.

First measure the complete diameter of your cake, including cream or frosting. Compare your cake diameter to our bottom cake container diameters. Most cakes need about 1/2" of clearance all around. So if your cake measures 9" round, the correct cake container would have a 10-10.25" diameter. Now you know you need to be looking at the 9" cake containers with a 10.25" diameter.
Second measure the total height of your cake from top to bottom, including cream or frosting. Now check the listed "dome depths". Choose a container which has a dome depth slightly taller than your cake height.

Should I choose a cake circle / cake board that has the same diameter as my cake or the same diameter as the cake container?

Generally choose a cake circle with the same diameter as the cake container. This ensures your cake stays put & does not move around.
