any help would be great! i'm also looking for boards.
Where in Canada are you. I order mine from H.Y. Louie a wholesale store in B.C. I think they get them from Snow Cap in Burnaby,B.C its just easier for me since you have to order over $200 from them. Boards can be bought from Nicholson Equipment located in Vancouver and Edmonton,AB
I live in montreal and buy my at Rose Blanche in Lachine.
I live in Ottawa and bought my boxes at Bulk Barn a few weeks ago They were on sale and pretty cheap.
I buy mine from J Wilton in Edmonton, AB.
They are expensive to start, but once you've spent $300 in their store you get 25% off everything in the store, which makes it cheaper. And they ship.
In Ontario i get my supplies from Dawn Foods Ltd.
I'm from Ottawa and Bulk Barn has lots of stuff at reasonable prices. There's always Michael's too. They're pricy though.
How's it going! I know where you can get some cake boards and boxes. But what's it worth to ya....huh???
Ok, fine I'll just tell you.
GT French Paper in Kitchener. I don't know the exact address of it but it's right by my aunt's place. What's-her-face's mother used to get all their stuff there.
Sounds like some pretty good prices.
When Bulk Barn has a sale they're reasonable, just stock up then.
This is cool to see so many Canadians on this website! Since I usually only make cakes for family and friends (and friends of family, and friends of friends....!) I usually get my boxes from the grocery store. Food Basics always puts their boxes right out front for people to use. Every time I'm in there I look through and pick boxes that are a good size. It's just the bottoms of course, no lids. Then I cut my foamboard (which I buy at Michael's when it's on sale) to fit perfectly inside the box - and cover the board with shelf paper (mac tac, whatever you want to call it). Once the cake is in the box, I cover the box with clear basket wrap or even just saran wrap. I just hate paying $3 or more for a box....I guess if I was doing this more "professionally" I would buy boxes....Last time I bought a box (because the cake was for one of my kid's teacher) the side flap hit the writing on my cake board and I had to do a couple of the words over! By the way, not sure if I'm allowed to promote another cake decorating website on here - but there is a Canadian version of CC at cakescanada.com !!
I'm in Gatineau (near Ottawa) - I usually get my boxes at Artistic Cake Design, on Wellington st. Their prices are reasonable and they have both the foil covered cardboard cake boards and the foil covered wooden cake boards.
I usually buy most things at Bulk Barn. I've done some shopping for "special" things at Golda's Kitchen. They have lots, but I wait for sales. They are great to deal with online. Never had a problem and fast service!
I also make my own cake boards sometimes.
Discovery Paper in Edmonton.
The Paper Place here in London is usually cheap always under a dollar for a box.
Bulk Barn or Artistic Cake Design in Ottawa..
Michael's has some too but I never get them there..too expensive
I am going to ask where the guys in the shipping dept at my work get their boxes and then check that out for Cake boxes..I will let you know if anything good comes from that.
