How important is your packaging? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

I just wanted to say thanks to "From Scratch" for turning me onto boxes with no liners!! I have hated those liners, because they are too tall and they cut off the tops of the cupcakes. So for years, I've been cutting down each and every darned one!! This Christmas I went "commando" and WOW no one even noticed! I love that I am using fewer boxes and SMALLER boxes!! Overall, I think it looks better to have a compact box with a dozen cakes in it, than a giant box with 12 CC or worse 2 boxes. 

 

I'm in love with this usage! Thank you for sharing so generously!

Hey Everyone,

     I buy plastic cupcake cases (I think from Paper Mart) and I love them! No assembly required and you can see the cupcakes without opening the lids. I have 12 packs, 6 packs, and 4 packs. Every cake or cupcake order that leaves my business will have a label on it with my contact information (you can see it on the picture I've attached here). I actually just printed up a whole bunch of return address labels and put my business info on it (from Vistaprint) instead of getting custom stickers and so I have a ton of them ready to put on every box, tray, or container. Then, I also put a handful of postcards or business cards with my info on it for them to pass out at the gathering in case anyone wants to contact me. I don't do really any advertising (at least no paid advertising) and I have a steady business by just word of mouth. I hope that helps :) Happy caking!
Jennifer

Hi! I use the plastic containers too and I love them....but this April I am going to a festival that is for Earth Day so everything is about recycling and etc....so I was thinking about for the festival to get boxes, so they are biodegradable and etc...thoughts on those? Thanks! Lisa

just as an aside, Just Sugar Coat It has the heavy brown mini paper with a 1.5" base http://www.justsugarcoatit.com/mini_brown_baking_cups_p/mbbc96.htm  

 

Thanks for the link to the whites. These are tough to find in the wider base.  I found some little 12-spot pans from Kitchen Aid at Target that have the wider base. 

 

 

On the topic of boxes, if it is a present cake or a may be for a new customer I will use my standard craft brown brp box with logo sticker and a ribbon tied around it. I stock up on spools of ribbon in logo colors at the dollar store on on seasonal clearances to use for this. There is a bit of extra specialness in pulling open a bow to get to your special cake.  But it really depends on the situation.
