Introducing Box Your Bouqcakes
As with most small businesses they tend to begin because a need is recognised. That is exactly why our sister business ‘Box Your Bouqcakes’ was created.
I will start by introducing my husband. You may have read about Brett in previous blogs as he is my rock. I think he got so fed up of me complaining about the lack of suitably sized and good quality boxes I needed for my cupcake bouquets that he set about doing something about it. I am the creative side of Kerry’s Bouqcakes whereas Brett is the finance and mathematical wizard. So, with paper, card and a ruler he set about designing boxes that were bespoke for my business. He established a contact with a box maker and sent them the prototype box. A few tweaks later and “Hey Presto” a bouqcake box was born. Not one box but two. (we don’t do anything by halves!!) More sizes are also about to go on sale too for the larger bouqcakes.
Our bespoke box design shows off the bouqcakes to perfection incorporating clear side and top windows so it can be viewed from many angles. To many people it looks just like a traditional flower bouquet at first glance which adds to the delicious edible surprise for the recipient.
The box card is strong and protects the product when it is being transported and covers the cakes completely protecting it from contamination and the elements. The boxes are also suitable for large cakes. What I love most is the ease of use. In my case, Brett makes up my boxes the night before the order so all I have to do is pop the bouquet or cake into the box. Sorry if you don’t have such an obliging partner!!
Our first test shipment of a few thousand boxes was so popular it sold out within a week with boxes mainly going to UK, America and Europe. Our next shipment should be here by the time you read this blog. The feedback from other cake makers was very positive and this can be seen on our Box Your Bouqcakes Facebook page in reviews. I have added a Box Your Bouqcake page to my contents page on this website and you can see the box prices on my prices page. This is for information only and all communication must go through the Box Your Bouqcakes email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This is hopefully just the start of Box Your Bouqcakes as Brett (with my input) has many ideas for more bespoke cake related products, some of which will be coming to market over the next few months with a fair wind.
Here is what are customers are saying about our boxes and our service.
- Jo “Today I took receipt of my presentation boxes that I ordered at the weekend. I absolutely love them!!! Not only was the service I received excellent (responding to my message straight away even though it was at the weekend), but I feel they really do take my Bouquets to the next level. Thank you” – Nov 2020
- Yvonne “I love these presentation boxes. They are such good quality and definitely give a high class finishing touch to your bouquets. I would highly recommend them and will definitely be purchasing from Kerry again. The service is great too” 10 Aug 2020
- Carol A “The best boxes ever for packaging cupcake bouquets. I have the boxes for the 7 and 12 cup bouquets. They make it easier for delivery and safer during this pandemic. I have also used them for cakes as they are easy to use, as you put the cake in from the side. Great service from Kerry and her husband. Recommended 100%” – August 2020

So as with the little acorn I am hoping our sister business will grow into a strong, healthy and lasting oak tree. We would love you to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages especially as this is where new products etc will be advertised.
Stay safe and keep baking.
Kerry and Brett
