Hi everyone.

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).
