does anyone buy bulk cake boxes , fondant , ready made creams? If so where, is it online? I love baking as a hobby and have some friends at work that wants me to do some cakes for them. The problem is I don't want to over charge them, then again I don't want to be under charge.
We buy cake boxes and flour at Restaurant Depot, a national chain of restaurant supply stores (they do require a business license). We make our own frosting but buy most of the ingredients at stores like Costco, Smart & Final, and Target, except for fondant which we buy online.
One thing to watch out for is whether or not your state allows you to legally sell cakes from home. Some states have cottage food laws that allow this, but other states require a licensed and inspected commercial kitchen if accepting compensation for cakes.
I get bulk boxes from brpboxshop. Super fast and free shipping! The quality is really good too.
jason_kraft may I ask what online site you buy your fondant from? So many out there always looking for good price and shipping can be a killer. thanks
