Hello All,

I'm just getting into selling cakes and looking into getting cake boxes and cake boards.

I do cakes any where from 6"-16" round cakes, 9"x13"-12"x18" sheet cakes, 6"-16" sqaure cakes, and cupcakes by the dozen.

 

For the cakes I'm doing, I dont really want to buy cake boxes & boards for each size so what is your suggestions for cake box & board sizes to start with to have in stock?

 

I'm going to buy them wholesale so they come in cases of 50-100.

 

Any help would be great!

AFor rounds and square would do 8, 12, and 16.

You almost HAVE to buy each size to present a nice delivery look.  It will mean a lot to future business.

The good thing is that they can easily be stored until used.  Keep them in the box they come in. 

I'm sure you have had orders already so look over those and determine what has been the most common size(s) ordered.  Each person/bakery/area is different.  For me (when I had my bakeries) it was a 10"R and 9x12 sheets.

Those are my most popular sizes as well. I just dont have enough storage for 50-100 of each size, although I still would like to have a nice look to them when delivering. Buying boxes and boards at Michaels is getting too pricey. Thanks for the advice!

ACheck to see if you have a "if it's paper" on your area. I purchased about 10 at a time when I first started.
