The question I have is: The cakes I make are non standard, as are most of the cakes on here. Are there boxes available? Should I put them in a box? Do you just have them picked up as is, no box? Also I notice most people are covering the cardboard with fondant to give a finished look. Is that just covered just over the sides? Are you using anything specific under cakes besides the cardboard? If so where can I get them.
Thanks! I'm such a newbie!
a source of boxes:
also, for really big ones -- consider moving boxes from UHaul and the like.
under -- can also use:
masonite, 1/4" plywood, 1/4" MDF (precut at better cake specialty stores, or cut your own from Home Depot, Lowes, and the like) usually under base tier only, those can be under tiers when doing a PVC support system for wonky cakes.
foamcore -- office supply stores, Dollar Tree
3/4" MDF or plywood for baseboard only for truly heavy cakes -- lumber yard, Home Depot, Lowes
cut piece of log for very pretty decorative base (ask IndyDebi about hers)
brpboxshop.com has pretty good prices and boxes of all shapes and sizes. Welcome to CC!!!
thanks i got the samples from them, they were great. I just can't afford a huge box of them. I wonder if I can keep ordering samples for 10 bucks? I don't really need 100 boxes. ($$)
Is the brpboxshop.com site working for anyone? I placed an order over 2 weeks ago, never got a notice that it was shipped, and now their site won't load for me! I'm worried
