About the Wooden Cakebox Co.


FEBRUARY 2017 PRODUCT UPDATE: The Wooden Cakebox Company are committed to providing a quality heirloom baking product that will last. We make our cakeboxes from native Kahikitea sourced from fallen logs on the South Island West Coast. This timber is known for its clean white timber and neutral odour, so it is perfect for use with food products. This year, we have found that some of our larger, 23cm and 26cm cakeboxes are warping significantly after some time in the oven. While the baking results are still excellent, the cakeboxes themselves are pulling apart in places and not lasting as they should. If you have purchased a cakebox that does warp and pulsl apart after baking, please return it to the retailer and they will refund you. If it was purchased through this website please contact me and I will refund any purchase that is not up to our usual quality. You can email me at

We are currently trialling new timber and new cakebox design to improve the original wooden cakeboxes, these will become available from May 2017.
