Hi! I am opening a bakery soon, and I'm exploring the world of cake packaging. I want to also offer individual pieces of cake and have noticed some bakeries using a clear plastic wrap. It looks like a small sheet of plastic and the ones I have noticed have a little chef's hat printed in them. Does anyone know what they are called or know where I can find them? I've exhausted Google and every possible word I can think of to describe them icon_razz.gif Thanks in advance for your help!

It is called 'acetate' and it is sold either in sheets or a long roll that you could cut to size. I am sure most bakery supply places would sell it.

called :clear cake collars, Clear Cake Bands (Acetate Strips)

sold in rolls but only in 2 and 2/5" width

Or in wider pieces but I have not found them in rolls. Wish I could.

4 inch wide Clear Cake Collar Strips are usually 28-1/2 inch long. Wish it was on a roll. If anyone knows where to get it , please tell me!!!!

Lynne3 - I pm'd you...

My local cake supply sells acetate in 4" rolls...
I dont think I have ever seen them have just sheets of it... but maybe I am not looking in the right section... icon_biggrin.gif

Okay... I was a bit mistaken...
I gave them a call when they opened... I haven't purchased them from them, but I asked about it... They look like a roll, but are the sheets...
But I found these when I was poking about:
