Want to share your baking gifts far and wide, without the travel? Got a long-distance relative with a sweet tooth? Simple. Post it to them!
Our postable cake boxes allow you to ship your cakes up and down the country without it getting damaged or squashed. It's perfect if you run a cake business and find yourself on the road more than in the kitchen, or if you just want some extra security when storing and transporting your cakes.
The boxes include both inner and outer supports, as well as insert to slot your cake in, and a cake collar to wrap around the cake for extra support. See our video on the left to see how to assemble these.
Boxes come in three sizes to fit the following round cake sizes: 7", 9" and 12". Please note, this is not the size of the boxes, but the size of cake itself. Please also note, the boxes are designed to fit a cake board that is one inch larger than your cake. For example, a 7" postable box will fit a 7" cake on an 8" board. All boxes fit cakes up to 3" deep, and suited for 2D cake decorations.
One box includes:
Please note, these boxes have been tested and proved to work effectively. However, we cannot 100% guarantee that your cake will arrive undamaged. There is always the possibility of damage on route, e.g. dropped during loading, or unpreventable circumstances e.g. bad weather conditions at the time of shipping.
To prevent this, we recommend using labels or writing 'FRAGILE' on your box in large lettering, as well as 'THIS WAY UP' so the cake isn't to be carried upside down. This will encourage couriers to take extra care when delivering your cake.
We also recommend securing your cake on your board by applying some royal icing beneath your cake and allowing to set before shipping your cake. This ensures your cake will remain stuck to your board during travel.
Outer Box Measurements:
7" - H 6.5" x W 13.5"
9 & 12" - H 6.5" x W 15.5"
