I have been asked to make 100 cupcakes for a non-profit organization that helps families whose children need physical and/or occupational therapy. Their organization color is white. They want white cupcakes with white icing (no problem) and want them in white cupcake papers (is that what they are called?) and packaged individually in white boxes.
My questions are:
1. Where can I find good quality white, heavy duty cupcake papers that won't show grease through the paper? What brand is good?
2. Where can I find white, individual boxes for cupcakes?
The event is not until May but I need to find out how much the extra supplies are going to cost. Thanks for any assistance!
I can't help too much on the wrapper question, but here are some cupcake boxes that would work for you. http://www.brpboxshop.com/bakery_boxes/cupcake_boxes.html The boxes for individual cupcakes are about 1/5 of the way down the page. Shipping is FREE and their customer service is great. They also ship lightning fast. They will even send you samples if you want to check them out before buying. I have worked with them once before and I will work with them again no question. HTH!
You might try cakeart.com. They have a section on cupcake supplies. I don't know if they will have what you are looking for, but you can browse through it and see!
I have only bought the boxes through my local cake store, and I know they aren't the cheapest option, but I was in a time crunch when I bought them.
One trick they did show me to save money was that you can cut the double inserts in half and they work just like the single ones, but you save lots of money this way!!! The double inserts I bought were a few cents more than the single ones but you only need to buy half!!
Good luck with the cupcakes!
You may need to bake the cupcakes in one wrapper, then place in another wrapper to get the white. I haven't seen any wrappers not change color when baking. A bit of icing in the bottom of the second wrapper would "glue" in the cupcake.
