3 Unique Ways of Showcasing Awesomely Decorated Cupcakes - PackQueen
If you love baking creatively decorated cupcakes, you'll want to package these tasty treats in style. This article explores 3 unique presentation ideas to showcase your cupcake-decorating talents. We'll cover cupcake stands displaying different height levels, clear-top boxes that provide a peek at the decorations, and mini cupcake wrappers to showcase each piece. With these clever packaging techniques, your cupcakes are sure to impress any guest or gift recipient. Let's look at some eye-catching ways to present decorated cupcakes!

You’ve spent hours decorating each cupcake to perfection. Now you’re wondering how you could transport, present, or ship them out. You can always go the traditional route and choose cupcake boxes that come in single, double, half-dozen, and dozen cupcake slots (usually with inserts included), but if you’re looking for unique cupcake packaging solutions, check these three ideas out:

1. Bite-Sized Cupcakes for Kids.

When creating party favors for kids, tiny cupcakes are always a win.

Bite-sized cupcakes are not messy to eat and avoid wasting those precious treats when kids’ tiny tummies become full.

To show off your product, you can use chocolate or macaroon boxes. These boxes come with dividers and clear lid that could work well for separating decorated mini cupcakes, and presenting them perfectly.

2. Surprise your customers.

Everyone who orders cupcakes, expect to receive them in a box. Stray away from the norm and surprise them with unique packaging.

You don’t have to order custom-made boxes just for this purpose.

Other options include paper bags with windows, chocolate/macaroon boxes (as suggested above for bite-sized or mini cupcakes), boxes for mini cakes, and lunch boxes with windows.

If you’re not comfortable with other packaging solutions, you could also checkout transparent cupcake boxes and other food packaging options. These high quality PVC boxes are see-through from the sides, top to bottom, so if your goal is to proudly present your cupcake products, these can solve your problem and add a certain edge to your brand.


3. Organize cupcakes in hampers or trays.

Whether you’re attending trade shows, providing two or more dozens of cupcakes for parties, or simply finding a way to pack yummy cupcakes in bulk, hampers and food trays can solve your problems.


If the cupcake order is for a party or any event where they will be eaten at the venue, food trays could be used not only to transport these delicate treats easily, but also to highlight your cupcakes for everyone to see. They come with sturdy handles made from durable kraft cardboard, and are perfectly safe for food transport.

However, if you’re preparing cupcakes for presentation or sale, our cupcake boxes not only keep your products fresh, they could also entice would-be customers from buying as they could see through the clear plastic window.
