Though these whip up easily, we recommend a cutting machine to help keep things nice and straight. However, a detail knife and ruler will do the trick if you prefer to cut by hand. Once you’ve gathered your materials and tools, get ready for a big slice of crafting fun!

Inspired by our memories of Easter feasts past, we thought the humble carrot cake needed a little celebration. Though it’s been popular in the United States since the 20th century, carrot cake has been around since the Middle Ages! Carrots added sweetness to cakes back then since sugar was a rare and expensive treat. It’s amazing how something so simple and readily available could evolve into the yummy, spiced treat we know and love today!

These Carrot Cake Boxes are the perfect blend of playful and practical. Made with sturdy cardstock and embellished with our pearlescent paper for a shimmery carrot top, they’re guaranteed to add a playful touch to your Easter table or spring soiree. Plus, the lid pops right off, making them ideal for stashing away slices of cake (carrot, of course!), cookies, or any other sweet treat your heart desires.

When you’re finished, don’t be afraid to add your own creative flair. Sprinkle on some glitter for a touch of sparkle, or even personalize each box with a guest’s name for an extra special touch. No matter how you decorate them, we can’t wait to see your batch of adorable Carrot Cake boxes. Remember to share your creations with us in our crafters’ community or on Instagram using #MadeWithLia.
