I'm in Toronto, Ontario and wondering if anyone knows a good supplier for a 6-cupcake cake box. Until now I've been using a pie box & square board from Bulk Barn but I'm hoping for a box that fits the 6 cupcakes a little better. I guess a board that fits would be good too.
Any ideas? I'd even purchase online if you had a good reference/buying experience.
Cheers!

Wow, that was an amazing deal on ebay and thanks for the links to the other online companies, I'm checking those out too. I'll have to keep my eye open on ebay for a deal!
Thanks icon_smile.gif

I bought the same ones on ebay and split them with a friend. It was a great deal!

The ebay ones look good, but here's my question: How big of a cupcake can you get in them? Has anyone actually received them yet? The site says the exact size is: 9 3/8 in x 6 3/4 in x 2 7/8 in, accommodates six 2 1/2 in muffin/cupcake. That doesn't allow for much height. Or could that be just the base? But in that case, why not give more dimension in the overall measurements? I'm not sure. Anyone have these? I'd love to know! Thanks!

Would you mind letting me know who that was from? Did you get stung with the duty?

It seems to me that when I want something, Ebay never has a good deal...but it seems like people are always telling me about these amazing deals on packaging! LOL! One day I'll get it right!

Mellee,

They hold a standard size cupcake with room for a bit extra.The lid is also deep so when you put it down it doesn't smush the top icing.

I just found the 6 cavity plastic cupcake boxes online at www.countrykitchensa.com GREAT site for supplies, I use them all of the time! 12 count is $9.50 and 300 count is $191.00 plus shipping. They also carry mini cupcake containers, single containers and much more! I just packaged Easter Cupcakes in the 6 cavity containers, plenty of room, no smooshing, etc! thumbs_up.gif

BRP Box company lets you buy small quantities - nice for a hobby baker. The have a good variety of sizes and items too.

I've placed two mall orders with them and had good experience overall.
