I've been buying mine at Michaels, as that's the only cake decorating supply place around. Now that the word is spreading about my work, I'm getting more cake orders. Paying about $1 per board and $1.29 per box seems too much. Plus I hate that their boxes don't allow any room for me to use a board wrap on the 1/2 and 1/4 sheets. And the 1/2 sheet boards are just kind of flimsy sometimes.
Any suggestions for buying in bulk (probably online) would be appreciated!!
www.ckproducts.com and www.bakerycrafts.com are my primary sources, in addition to local restaurant supply stores.
I buy mine from a cake specialty store thats in the town i work in, (thank god there is one, be lost w/o it even though its 45 min away from my home)....but you could try talking to a bakery and see if they could order some in bulk for you. One time I got a FREE box when i went to wal-mart....i asked them if i could buy a full sheet cake box from them b/c the box i had got damaged (the cake for the box wasn't from wal0mart either)....Otherwise i would try one of the websites that everyone else suggested
Ok, I get mine from a cake decorating store. They're under a dollar a piece. Are you sure that Michaels is the only place to go? Look around, you might find somewhere. Otherwise online or mail order could be your best bet.
Thanks for the suggestions! I did a little more digging and found a company that sells boards and boxes nearby. They offered local pickup! I ordered last night and picked everything up today for about 1/4 the price that I was paying before!
