If you have a bakery or cake house, then you know that customers will always come in with big orders. They may be ordered for a birthday party or an anniversary party. You have to deliver the cakes in the right condition. This is where it gets tricky. Knowing how to pack the cake will need skills, patience, and the right packing box. Most of the times you will get bulk orders to deliver in bulk. Cupcakes follow the same procedure where you have to pack them and deliver to your customers at the right time, place and in good condition.
How then do you achieve a bulk delivery to your customers? While cupcakes look attractive and come out well when they are baked, you have to transport them all the way and still maintain that attractive nature. Customers want quality, and that is what you have to maintain. You might have the best recipe and produce the best cupcakes in the region, but if the packing is not up to standard, then you can lose good customers. When packing cupcakes for transportation, you have to consider the following:
The cupcake size
Cupcakes will come in different sizes. You have to consider the size before you buy the cupcake boxes. Different boxes will accommodate different sizes of cupcakes. It will depend on the order the customer has placed. You can buy the boxes after you have ascertained the size of the cupcake.
The number of cupcakes
If the order is in hundreds, then you have to buy more boxes for packing. It helps reduce the stress of having to transport to the customer. The cost will be more if the cupcakes are in bulk. However, you will be assured of their safety if you buy the right boxes.
The size of the cupcake boxes
Although the size of the boxes will depend on the size of the cupcake, you have to know how many cupcakes will go in every box. For example, you can buy a huge cupcake box that holds many cupcakes at a time. This might be cost-effective when transporting using a vehicle.
How far the cupcakes will be moved
The distance will matter. It will determine the cost and the mode of transport to use. If the distance is just a few blocks away, then you can use human transport to get the cupcakes to their rightful destination. However, if it is a long road ahead, you have to use a vehicle to make the delivery. The cakes have to be carefully stacked in the cupcake boxes in such a way that they do not collide with each other. It will, therefore, help to maintain their quality and condition in general.
The mode of transport
It might be a vehicle, or you can use your salespersons to deliver the cupcakes. In most cases, bakeries or cake houses will deliver cupcakes to business premises in offices or buildings. This will not prompt the use of a vehicle to transport them. In such a case, you will need a few cupcake boxes to go with the order. However, if the order is from a retail store or supermarket, you have to pack them in large boxes and transport them using a van.
