Where do you all purchase your boxes and boards besides Michaels?

Thomas and Howard. Rest. supply stores. I don't get my boxes anywhere else that than the 1st mentioned. And they also have the grease proof boards as well at Thomas and Howard.

I like tall cakes- never made a short one. I'm a hobby baker but usually give my cakes away to friends. If I need a box, I go to department stores that have cosmetic counters and ask for a tall box. Slice one of the sides down to make a "door" that folds up, and wrap it with wrapping paper.

Great idea about the tall boxes. Is Thomas and Howard online?

Thomas and Howard is online. You can find there locations on the site.
Google it and put in Thomas and Howard. It's like a cash and carry. But it's open to the public too and deals more with businesses.

I get mine at my local cake supply store... the boxes are much better quality (thicker) than the wilton ones and are cheaper.

Cake supply stores if I need a few in a hurry. Otherwise I buy from Globalsugart(dot)com and order at least 25 in each size I use frequently. I love having them on hand!

As an alternative to boxes, If you wish to purchase plastic cake "boards" and domes, the best place is - they allow you to purchase just a couple of as many or few items as you wish - no minimums.

Thank you ladies I will look into them all. I am just getting ready to get licensed and between that and my fulltime job, I just think it would be easier and more efficient to have them shipped to my home.

Check out your local restaurant equipment stores. Also, look in your phone book under "paper goods" or "restaurant supplies." You'd be surprised about where you might be able to purchase them. When I lived in a small town where I had a coffee shop, I discovered we had a "box" company that had been there over 100 years. Unfortunately, they went out of business while I still had the coffee shop. But, I really stocked up during their "going out of business" sale.
