I have 2 ways of packaging the above treats, but have had 1 of each tip over on the customer during transport. I don't know if it was the packaging or the crazy driver!

How you you package your cupcake bouquets for transportation? (as in the customer taking it home)
How would you package your flower pot cake for transportation? (as in the customer taking it home)

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made a bunch of cupcake flower bouquets for mothers day they were all presented in flower pots. I put the flower pot into a shoe box, the smallest one it would fit in, and then stuffed newspaper all around the sides to the point where the flower pot could not move. Customers that had someone else to hold it while they drove went fine, other said it was stable until they went round a corner.

This packaging works if there are 2 people to transport it, but a little hit and miss for one.You can make it look prettier by using coloured tissue paper, but it needs to be packed tight. I'm still working on transportation for this as well, but that was one idea! If I come up with any others will keep you posted - and visa versa!
