Packaging Baked Goods in Your Kitchen - Creative & Resourceful Ideas





When I owned a catering company, I learned that it, indeed, is “all about presentation,” as they say.  I’ll never understand how someone can spend so much time and effort into making a delicious and beautiful treat, then put it into a plastic tupperware box or put it on a paper plate wrapped in plastic wrap.  Drives me crazy... I realize that most people do not have all the time in the world to dream up how to package their cookies.  Yes, I know there are more important things.  Buuuut, it is so easy with just a little effort.

Take a cue from you favorite retail boutiques, do they put your purchases in a plastic grocery stack?  No, they wrap your items lovingly in tissue sealed with a branded sticker and then into a color coordinated gift bag.  Packaging your kitchen goodies nicely might even make them taste better... if that is possible.

Now, you can find all of this packaging supplies in my online store : Everyday Occasions - enjoy!

  1. These are all gorgeous packaging, and they seem to be so inexpensive! I have a bunch of cello bags. I just need some pretty ribbon.

    Thanks for sharing, and saving me a ton of money, of course.

  2. Thanks! I agree, it is all in the presentation. I buy my cellophane bags at a restaurant suppy company where you pay a lot less than Paper Source (I love that store). And yes, it has to be the crinkly bags not thin bags which will rip. As always, you do such thoughtful and beautiful posts.

  5. These are adorable ideas! You have exceptional taste. I have started to look forward to what beautiful inspirational idea you will share next everyday. My family has always been all about the presentation. I love that I have finally grown to appreciate & love the extra special details. I would love to know where you found the brown paper round labels. Carrie

  7. You are so right, presentation is everything. Love all the examples you shared.

    I especially am interested in the one in the last photo. I have seen in some bakeries where muffins are wrapped like the cupcake you have shown. Is that parchment paper, or some fancy schmancy stuff we could buy at a kitchen store?

    Thank you once again for sharing your ideas.

  9. So true...presentation is key! Love how your simple packaging materials end up looking so polished (the circular fold-over bag toppers are a neat idea)!
