Cake-Cetera is ready to grow nationally but would love your support to make this happen!
Following a career in clothing design I spent a year caring for my mum who was diagnosed with a terminal tumour in 2010 aged 54. During Mum's illness friends, family, colleagues and neighbours popped in and out wishing her well and each time brought cakes and goodies, which was AMAZING! I was inspired after mum's death last year to set up www.cake-cetera.co.uk and design a unique range of goodies to send as an alternative to flowers!
Anyhoo enough of the sob story ... I have created a range of cupcake bouquets which consist of 13 cupcakes plus chocolate leaves, arranged in a reusable ceramic flower pot. They vary in colour and flavour and are also available gluten free. The cakes are so unique and delicate that I have to hand deliver them, so I'm limited to delivering personally in Lanarkshire and Glasgow. Mothers Day and Christmas Eve were amazing and we delivered more than 50 bouquets on Christmas Eve which was manic for a one-woman delivery driver.
The cupcake bouquets also make amazing centrepieces and we were delighted to sponsor this year's Scottish Fashion Awards and provided bouquets for the VIPs and celebs.
I'd love to send the cupcake bouquets via courier around the UK, as no company exists which sends this type of cupcake bouquet nationally. In order to do this, packaging needs to be designed to ensure the delicate bouquets are completely protected en-route.
The University of West of Scotland are currently working on a packaging design for me via a government project and I will have 10 workable samples by the end of July. Woohoo! No more white van lady!
Once the samples have been designed it is then time for a packaging company to make the expensive tool for the packaging, and then we order each packaging container from them. The cost for them to create this new design tool mould is more than 1300 GBP, which is the stumbling block for me to take this project further.
Once we have this tool created we can then send the cupcake bouquets nationwide via our website but also supply to various outlets. Potentially with this packaging solution we can also eventually franchise the company overseas which would be a dream journey on which I hope you can join me!
