Does anybody know where I could get tall cake boxes. Sometimes I have a cake over 6" and would really love to have a great box for this. Thanks.
I often have the same problem! My cakes are a minimum of 5" tall and I usually have customers picking up tiered cakes too. The regular cake boxes just aren't tall enough, grrr!
Go to your local Business Depot or Staples (Walmart, Kmart, whatever!) and get Banker's file boxes. (I get 6-packs for about $13 dollars here in Ontario.)
They are VERY strong, sturdy and about 11" tall. They have built-in handles and are a good 12" wide usually. They work perfectly with a tall cake or even tiered ones.
What I do is cut out a square of non-slip- rubber matting for the bottom of the box, then lay the cake on its board on top. SOO perfect for transporting cakes!
You Rock!!! Thanks, I never would have thought to use one of those. I love the idea of the handles (since cakes cakes cak get heavy and transport can be a nightmare)The no slip thing is great too
Thanks bunches and bunches
The file boxes are great and I use them too. For cakes even bigger, WalMart sells moving boxes (extremely sturdy), that are 15" X 15" X 16" for $3 each, and Home Depot has some even larger, like 20" square for about $4. (hint: turn the boxes on their sides and then the openings will be like doors and even easier to access; hope that makes sense )
