Where do most of you purchase your boxes and boards? I would really like to get the best deal possible and I don't mind buying a large quantity but I've been looking a websites all morning and just trying to decide what's the best deal. Anybody have a favorite site you purchase these items from. I also am going to need some of these quickly so if you've used someone with a good turn around time that would be helpful to know as well.

Thanks so much for the help!!

I get mine at a local cake supply store..I did get quite a few boards at Hobby Lobby when they had everything half price..I don't like the boxes at Michael's because they are not very sturdy....

I think you can order them off the web, but I checked into it and the shipping made them really expensive...HTH

I buy most of mine at Hobby Lobby. They're about $3.00 for the big ones with windows but go down in price from there. The small square (pies fit great in this one) are about $.97.

I purchase my boards at Hobby Lobby, too. I've been bugging my husband or my oldest son to make me some out of plywood -- hasn't happened yet.

I usually buy my during the Wilton Tent Sale by me. Everything is 50-75% off. I stock up on what I think I may need.

I also look for the coupons/sales that Micheals or Hobby Lobby has.

I buy my boxes/boards at If It's Paper. They're MUCH cheaper than the craft stores and really good quality. I'm not sure where you are in NC, I'm originally from Greensboro and I know they have on there. Although, it's been 10 years since I lived there so I couldn't tell you where the store is now! HTH

I have been pricing boards and boxes this morning and the best I can find is www.papermart.com. Their prices are good and the shipping 1/2 of what I found at other places.

I buy all of my boxes and boards at a cake supply store when I'm in Memphis. I try not to order them online because the shipping costs are so much, especially with the large sheet cake boxes.

you might call some of your local box stores...many carry bakery boxes and boards. Also they are usually better quality than those you find at Michael's and Hobby Lobby. If you are looking for heavier boards...Home depot ans Loews can cut scrap wood to size for really cheap.

Does anyone know where you can order the plastic cupcake holders??? I get tired of going to Kroger...they tell me they can only sell me 1 or 2.

They called them cupcake inserts on the www.countrkitchensa.com site. That is the only place I have ever seen them (CK Products)

The ones here are:

They come in a big quantity though. If you use them a lot they are worth it.
