I have just spent the last couple of hours surfing the web trying to find a good wholesaler for cake boxes and boards/drums. I am having trouble finding them in my local highstreet and the only shop selling them charge £1.50 for a square board (one of the really thin ones). I want to buy drums in quantities of 10 or 20 and boxes as well.

I seem to use my 8" round cake tin the most so Im looking for drums that are 9" and 9" boxes. I presume a 9" round drum will fit into a 9" square box. I also need some 10" square drums with 10" square boxes. I would also buy some of the cheaper thinner boards for lighter cakes. Ive found one website which seems pretty good (Rye-Pac) but the cake boxes are only 4" high which seems a little shallow considering there will be a drum in there as well and sometimes a fondant figure on the top. Can someone give me some direction as to what boxes/boards/drums you use the most and where you get them! Thanks so much

Hi there, I buy my cake boards and boxes from Almond Art. But I don't buy them in bulk even though they do bulks. Here is the link for you.

I think if you spen more £40 or £60, the delivery is free.

The other one is called Sugarshack, and they do free delivery if its more than £40 I think!

Yeah, the stack boxes are fantastic, as they are made to store American style cakes. They sometimes have offers on them as well. icon_smile.gif
