What are some common materials used for cake boxes and their pros and cons?

Common materials used for cake boxes include cardboard, paperboard and plastic.

Cardboard cake boxes are a popular due to their affordability, recyclability, and sturdiness. They are also customizable and can be easily printed with your bakery's logo or design. However, cardboard cake boxes may not be as moisture-resistant as other materials, so they may not be suitable for cakes with high moisture content. An option is to use grease proof paper with the cardboard.

Paperboard cake boxes are similar to cardboard but are typically lighter in weight and less sturdy. They are also recyclable and customizable, making them a good option for lightweight cakes or pastries. However, paperboard cake boxes may not provide as much protection for heavier or taller cakes.

Plastic cake boxes are durable, moisture-resistant, and reusable. They are ideal for cakes that need extra protection during transport or storage. However, plastic cake boxes are not as environmentally friendly as cardboard or paperboard and may not be biodegradable.

Ultimately, the choice of material for your cake boxes will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Consider factors such as cost, sustainability, durability, and presentation when selecting the best option for your boxes.
