Just wanted to pass along a website that I found that sells plastic disposable cupcake containers and you do not have to buy a case of them!
plasticcontainercity.com
I bought 25 of them at 99 cents each and used them this past Friday. I will attach a pic so you can see. I had 300 cupcakes to do and they stacked three high and fit perfectly in the back of my SUV.

I just checked out this site, looks good to me. I thought I'd post my find here as well. Walmart has cake domes that are seasonal for $3.44. They have two sizes, one will fit a normal double layer 10 inch cake (or smaller - I just put a piece of shelf liner in the bottom). It locks and has a handle to carry it too. They also have one for pies that would work for a single layer cake. The ones on this website plasticcontainercity.com are $2.50 for a 10'' disposable. Now I'm regretting only buying 3 of the seasonal ones at Walmart. I guess I'll buy like 6 more next time I go to walmart.

Y'all are welcome! I did order the deep ones and they are pretty deep. I do not think they are deep enough for my sitting up elephant cupcakes but for others they will work fine. I also ordered 5 of the individual cupcake holders just to see what they look like and they are pretty neat. Good for sending home the bride a cupcake for mom or hubby-to-be to taste.

Here is pic of all 300 cupcakes.

Thanks for the info. I will have to check that out. Do you usually put your cakes in cake domes? I always put mine in a cake box which cost a lot cheaper.

bjfranco-could you tell me what you charge for cupcakes? I made 150 for a graduation, WASC, choc., strawberry, and spice with a white and royal blue swirl on top - and delivered them 15 miles away. I charged $75 and I think she thought that was too much.

If its a round cake and I know I'll see the person again, I use a round cake dome. I dont have a lot of customers yet, mostly friends and family. I bought some boxes too, but if you figure up paying $1.50/box (plus gas because there's not aplace close by me) and the fact that the box can only be used once, I like the cheap plastic domes better. Once I get more customers I think I'll use the boxes more, but for friends, they like to keep the dome because it's air-tight and it gives them something to store the cake in until they've eaten it all. It's not a suprise when I send a cake home with someone and dont see the cake dome again for a week because they had to finish the cake.

I might be wrong, but I think Sams Club also sells these out of the bakery?

Thanks so much for sharing. I have been searching for a vendor that sells these containers. I was almost ready to ask Walmart or Sam's would they sell theirs to me.

Thanks again!

Here is another alternative from www.brpboxshop.com. (This company doesn't charge S/H). 100 of these inserts cost $19.27, so that's 19 cents each plus the cost of a 1/4 sheet box which I also buy from them. They also have them in variety of sizes to fit various boxes. The top pic is the one that costs $19.27.

Simply cupcakes like these (white almond cake/white icing) I charge .75 each and I do not deliver. Normally my cupakes start at 1.50 and most are around $2.

I did these for my neighbor's daughter's graduation (home-schooled kids) and it was also part of my "gift" to her so I gave them a break on the price and also did 16 jumbo cupcakes plus I delivered.

I think you should have charged more. Multi flavors & multi colors plus you delivered! .50 a cupcake was a deal. She should be happy! Especially with gas $3 a gallon with my big SUV it would have cost me $6 bucks in gas just to deliver! So right away I would be down to $69 for the cupcakes...that's only .46 cents each. Plus my time........

It's hard to price cupcakes because people want you to compete with Sam's/Costco/Walmart cupcakes and to me there is no comparison.

We found a company that also provides great trays. You can buy in smaller quantities for way less money. Their link is http://www.foodservicewebsource.com.Just click on bakery to see tray choices. Hopefully this will help someone out there. :)
