I don't buy online, but our local Party Depot hands down has the best prices. Much cheaper than the craft stores.

I don't have any place local that sells them. So far i've been getting them at Micahel's but it is soo expensive! So i was thinking about getting them in bulk and just having them.

I found the cheapest for me is Sams Club I get 50 boards and 2 piece box for 50.00 for all three pieces. I have to use my 40% off coupons to get my 1/4 sheet boards at Michaels or Joannes and get my 1/4 sheet boxes from Pat Catans for .56 each. I hate all the running but I buy lots at a time so I don't go often.

I like to get mine from hisandhertreasures.com. They have a wide variety of boards, boxes, colors, tools, etc and ship quickly. I don't live anywhere near a Walmart, Sam's or Hobby Lobby. (Actually, I'd never even heard of Hobby Lobby until a couple of weeks back.)

Has anyone bought the plastic tray/dome cake containers shown at this website?

I don't need a case of anything, and these can be bought by the piece. My cakes are taller than 4 inches. I could find only a couple of sites with 5.5 or 6 inch tall boxes, and you have to buy so many of them.

Where do you want the cake boards shipped to? If you live in US I'd find an american site, if the UK try this one http://www.cakescookiesandcraftsshop.co.uk/acatalog/Cakeboards.html

I live in Denmark so having things shipped from the US usually costs a small fortune if it is even possible. HTH icon_lol.gif

I think the very best cake boards come from Caseland Company. They're call Tuff Boards and they are really tuff. It's not my company, just a satisfied customer.

I am able to find boxes at a local cake deco store. However, they are expensive. I bake as a hobby and I dont need much of them. So, the price isnt that bad. I've purchsed from the local craft store in a pinch, but the boxes are so flimsy. Each time I use them, I am reminded how much I dont like them! If I were to go into business, I'd probably have to order them online!

i bought several cases of pink ones from papermart, the pink ones were a bit more expensive, but they are really cute....the shipping alone was 70 bucks...but the company gives you 15% off if you buy over 200.00.

You don't say where you're from ... and most here are from the US, so that's the advice/references you'll get ... but ...

If you're in Canada, I get mine at Bulk Barn. If you're in/near Hamilton, try GT French Paper Supply (off Rymal). I like that I can buy what I need individually, since I don't need 2 dozen cake boards at a time, and don't have the storage space anyway.

Another source to check would be cakedeco.com.
