Im going to be making 450 cupcakes (regular size) for a wedding in a few weeks. And the couple want them individually boxed as favors and i have no idea were to get those clear boxes. And i also dont know what size box will fit the cupcakes nicely so i really need help.Can you guys please help me out.

I leave in a few days to go to the wedding location (its a destination wedding) so i dont have much time to prepare. They gave me rather short notice of this.
Thanks for the help.

here's a couple places i found that have individual cupcake boxes. the clear plastic one seems most like what you might be looking for. hope this helps!

I typed clear cupcake boxes into google and several places came up.

There are also some on ebay and at www.graciousbridal.com

Good luck!

I got some from here: http://www.clearbags.com/boxes/cube-boxes

I got the 4x4x4 & 4x4x3...i think, i have to check. The smaller box was a perfect fit if you want to use just the cupcake(reg.size), the larger box can fit a cupcake and any extras you want to add.

So, did you decide if you will use them or not? If not, you can always attach a ribbon to the cupcakes. Then again...thats alot of ribbon...

I hope you dont mind me asking but how much is 'cheap'? I've been looking as well and the cheapest I have found is about a $1 each + ship.
Good luck w/ the wedding! It sound like alot of work but FUN! icon_biggrin.gif

I used to have a cookie business, and I found that the packaging took forever, and wasn't cheap.

To answer shell62995 i found them on ebay for about $20 for 50 of them (3x3x3) making it about 0.40 cents for one. but i ended up not going with ebay because i found it even cheaper still at this website

Thanks Marmett! That is a great price compared to the ones I found!

For those boxed cupcakes that are in style now, how do you "secure" your cupcake to the bottom so that it does not tip over in the box? I thought about dabbing a bit of icing on the bottom but then you got icing allover the place????

Thanks,
Naty

hmm im not sure i usually use fondant so it doesnt matter if it moves around but if anyone has any ideas that would be great to know.

When we do cupcake favors, we do a 4x4x4 clear box, put one of theos sticky " glue dots" on the bottom, put the cupcake in cold, and tie a ribbon around the top.
