Cake delivery and its challenges
It's a topic that sends us cake bakers to bed with worry and frustration most nights...maybe that's a bit extreme but it is a worry and a barrier to cake businesses being able to offer their cakes nationwide.
I get a lot of requests from all over the country for my cupcakes - and I really wish that I could send them all over but I am yet to find a courier that can get my cakes to their destination in one piece (any cakey friends - who do you use?).
My only solution so far is to make my cupcakes into yummy cake jars! My large cake jars hold THREE WHOLE CUPCAKES and are only £5..it doesn't get much better than sitting down on the sofa in the evening after a long day and just grabbing a spoon and digging in...
This is the only solution I've found so far, and don't get me wrong - it isn't a bad one as cake jars are bloody delicious, but I would still love to send my beautifully decorated cupcakes far and wide too.
If anyone has any advice or knows of a courier that can send cupcakes far and wide - I would love to hear it so that I can really spread my wings and make Victoria's Sponges a fully fledged online business!
