I'm wondering how many different size boxes you have to keep in stock.  I usually bake a two tier 8-9 inch cake.  Mostly square, but round too.  I do cupcakes as well mostly by the dozen, and 8-9 inch pies.  I don't want to buy a ton of sizes.  Thanks in advance!  Doreen

AI made the decision about 6 months ago to simplify my life. All my birthday cakes, regardless of size, go on 14 or 16 inch square or round drums, therefore I only stock up on 14 and 16 inch boxes for cakes. I sell cupcakes with a 24 count minimum so only stock up on the 24 count boxes for those. I have small amounts of 6 and 8 inch boxes for smash cakes and the top tier of wedding cakes. Every now and then I will go to Big River packaging and get samples of larger or smaller boxes, but never a huge stockpile.

me too. I have 10 inch boxes and 12 inch boxes. The 10s fit a dozen cupcakes without an insert and all the cakes go on 12 inch decorative rounds, and into the 12 inch boxes.
