I am new to cake decorating and am taking some classes this weekend and am not sure what I should take all of my supplies in so I was wondering if anyone can give me some suggestions as to what you use.Also, when the class says to bring a box, do you bring cake boxes or just any old box you have around the house? thanks for any suggestions!

I usually take a container with a handle on it, I got several from my discount store (family Dollar, Dollar Deals) etc. they are not costly at all. they kind of look like toolboxes but they are clear/see thru.

I believe that you should take a cake box. Usually, the class instructor will give or suggest the size of the box depending on what the class will be doing. if its not a big project, i woyld take a reasonable size box ie: 10x5" or 12" sq box. but check with yr instructor.

My favorite is a fishing tackle box. It has adjustable sections, closes tight so nothing moves from section to section, great handle...

I'm a WMI so I have seen all kinds of ideas from the big reusable shopping bags, to laundry baskets and everything in between.

I have two rolling cart tool boxes I use for my classes. Got them at Home Depot for $33 and they work prefect for me.

I've learned that it really all depends on what all you need to take and what the items are.

As far as cake box vs other box, I am sure either will work. It is probably so you can get what ever you make home safe. Some other boxes are stronger than cake boxes.
