I’ve been busy making Christmas cakes. As some of them are for others, like teacher thank you presents, they need to go in nice Christmas Cake Boxes.
Here are my favourite Christmas cake boxes that I use for small gifts.
I find all of these just perfect for small gifts, not just at Christmas but obviously at Christmas they get used more.
Firstly there are the Cube boxes
If you need something to put a small cake in then these are great. Approximately 10cm cubed they will hold a small cake or a large decorated muffin.
I made these Christmas cakes in a large muffin tin (it has 6 holes in the tin not 12 so you can imagine the kind of size). My mum tells me she used to make Christmas cakes with her school pupils in baked bean tins, so I think these boxes would work for those too.
By the way – do you like my snowman decoration on the cake?
Secondly there are the mini boxes
These smaller boxes will hold a standard cupcake or muffin. They will also hold sweets, chocolates, homemade biscuits etc.
oooh – or a surprise!
The base of these is about 6cm square and there are 5 in a pack.
I’ve also used these mini boxes for ‘party bags’ at my children’s birthday parties. I discovered pretty early on that when children get party bags all they were really interested in was the sweets! So not wanting to give out a huge bag of sweets I tried these on our guests. They went down a treat as they looked so different it was more like giving out a present to unwrap and I think the children liked that more.
So if you’re in need of Christmas Cake Boxes for those small homemade gifts then look no further.
PS I’d love to know what you put in yours. Do comment and share with us, or post a picture on my Facebook page.
