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! icon_mad.gif

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. icon_smile.gif

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! thumbs_up.gif

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 icon_biggrin.gif )
