How to Assemble Cake Boxes: A Step-by-Step Guide

Assembling cake boxes is a simple task & ensuring they are sturdy and secure is crucial for safely transporting your baked goods. A properly assembled box makes all the difference especially when transporting a delicate cake. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process with detailed instructions and two instructional videos to make it even easier.


  1. Prepare Your Workspace: Begin by laying your box flat on a clean, flat surface. This will help you work more efficiently and keep your box clean. White boxes can be easily stained with debris and oils from buttercream or food colors.

  2. Fold Along Each Crease: Every box comes with pre-scored lines that indicate where you should fold. Start by folding along these lines to begin forming the box.

  3. Secure the Tabs: Most boxes have tabs that fit into corresponding slots. Insert these tabs into the slots to lock the sides in place. This ensures that the box remains sturdy.
