I'm looking for some advice.
I advertise on my website boxes of cupcakes in 4,6,12 and 24. Occasionally I get an order for 10 or 13 or something random.
While I am happy to do the order, I never know how to package and present these as I only order boxes in the sizes I advertise.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Just say no, they can order 4 ,6, 12 or 24. Or leave a couple of spots empty, I really don't see any other options.
I just leave empty spaces if it's less. I try to make even boxes like if someone orders thirty I would put 10 in each box leaving two empty spaces in each rather than making two full boxes and leaving 6 empty spaces in one. I have a thing about symmetry and even weight distribution... but that's just my disorder.
AOk thanks guys. I just thought some people might get different boxes or containers from somewhere. Thank you!
I package cupcakes individually in 9 oz drink cups. Use the lid as the bottom and snap the cup over the cupcake. Works great.
ALol, pastrybaglady, I'm the same! No uneven numbers :D I have different sized trays which I cover in lotus paper. Can't get cupcake holder boxes here and so far it has worked nice like that and looks pretty to. But i insist on numbers which fill tray (otherwise the cupcakes start shifting during transport).
