Domes are a piece of cake!


Packaging and transporting gorgeous cakes and appetising tarts is a tricky business but one that can be conveniently carried out using the right type of container. Created by RPC Astrapak Thermopac, the distinctive thermoformed black cake bases, and clear dome lids are fitting, high-quality containers ideal for the task, making the transportation and storage of freshly baked cakes and tarts “a piece of cake”.

Along with being premium quality, the base and dome lids are gentle on the environment, as they are reusable and recyclable.

PET (Polyethylene terephthalate), a favourable material for storing food, is transformed through the thermoforming process to create the base and dome combos. It is a safe, non-toxic, lightweight plastic, yet it is strong and flexible, preventing breakages. PET gives the containers an excellent clarity and, as a result, contributes to the effective display of the contents.

Ample surface area on the lid’s top allows for maximised branding and labelling. The pronounced ridges on the base keep the cake centrally positioned and prevents slippages during transportation and stacking. In addition to preserving freshness and protecting the contents from bacteria, the rigid nature of the PET clip-on lid ensures the cakes’ decorations are not ruined.

With an attractive smooth finish, the cake domes are tailored to suit a variety of cake shapes, loaves and sizes. The innovative 10-Sided Cake Dome has minimal ridging on the transparent lid, providing a great optic effect to view the contents.

According to PETCO, as well as boasting to be the most recycled plastic in the world, PET plastic is lightweight and therefore reduces the costs and the carbon emissions involved in transportation, making it easy on the pocket and easy on the environment.
