What Type Of Cake Box Should I Use For My Cake?

With so many different types of cake boxes available, it can get a little confusing when trying to find the best one for your cake. Cake boxes are crucial for protecting your cakes during transit or storage so it's important you find the right one to suit the size and style of your cake. 

Many of our boxes are strong enough to support any cake type, from a light sponge to heavier fruit cakes. Always pick a box at least 1 to 2 inches larger than your cake to avoid the sides causing any damage.

Cake boards are also important as they prevent your cake from moving around in the box. Your cake board should be the same size as your box and, a general rule, for fruit cakes you should use a board 3 inches larger than the cake and 2 inches larger for sponge cakes.

No matter what style, shape or type of cake you have, we're sure to have the perfect box for you!

Assemble the lid and place on top once your cake has been positioned in the box.

Please note: each base card has a perforated insert so two sizes of cake can fit into each box, therefore preventing the cake from moving inside the main box.
