Where can I find packaging for bite size cupcakes,  not mini cupcakes, but the very small cupcakes, like the size of a quarter. Does anyone else bake this, if so, how do you package them.

How small are you talking? My minis are a standard size of 1.25" base width by 1" height. When I make minis I put them in a plastic egg carton, are yours smaller than that?

That is probably only available as custom-ordered packaging.

I can't attach a picture, but here they sell transparent plastic boxes with a top (good for stocking). They are cheap and they have varies sizes. I would look on the Internet for disposable food boxes or so.

they are only about 1"  in base with,  smaller than standard mini, tall  about 1/2 to 3/4 on an inch. It's literally one bite.

Jendeniz~~I was thinking before going to sleep last night and thought, AH  HA!  Candy inserts and boxes!     This is  a supplier I like, http://www.papermart.com/candy-packaging/id=20495-INDEX#20495

You can look all over the internet for food-safe candy boxes to get exactly what you want.    You can also use coupons at craft stores and purchase candy boxes made by Wilton if you don't need a lot of boxes.

Good luck with these bite-size cupcakes.  I made 15 dozen mini's once and they are incredibly picky to bake (seconds can literally make a difference between usable and not usable).  After that little experiment, I decided  the idea of the smaller, bite-size cupcakes was not something to look forward to.....

Here are some pics of the mini's I made and how I "rescued" the ones that were over-/under-baked by putting melted chocolate in a new liner and plopping in the failures.   There are also pics of 4 different flavor/filling combinations in a one dozen presentation clear plastic clamshell.

Are you a hobby baker?  Are you making one-bite size with different fillings and frosting?  I fell in love with the tiny little gems from the New York bakery, Baked By Melissa.

Thanks Apti, the candy box inserts would do the trick, I am a hobby baker,  sell to friends, family and co-workers....  The baked by Melissa look so tasty, never tried them, I live in CA .... I like baking tiny bite size deserts.. since in my family we are always watching our sugar intake,  I figured a bite size is good to not over due it, you still have to make sure you don't eat too many.

Actually you need packaging for cupcakes that are custom in size, you can get these packaging boxes from TheCustomBoxes. Packaging from them is very durable and also according to the need. There are also many other manufacturers but you have to talk them first.
