I was wondering where do all of you get your cake boxes and boards from? Are you buying them in bulk? If so, where? Or are you doing like me and buying them one by one whenever I need them?

I have a cake supply store that is close to me that I get mine from. icon_smile.gif Also found that in an emergency *this past weekend* that you can find gift boxes at Walmart that are cake sized... I found a 19x14x4 box to deliver a cake in. Saves you in a pinch! thumbs_up.gif Not as pretty as those from the cake store, but they'll do.

I buy mine at a cake supply store too. I used to just buy them when I needed them but I've found that it's much easier to have some of the typical sizes on hand. So usually when I got I'll buy 5-10 at a time. Usually when I make a cake for someone I have most things on hand, rarely need something just at the cake supply store, so why go just for a box?!

If it is a fullsheet or something that large, I go to a local bakery to get the box.. but for the smaller boxes (1/2 sheet and smaller) I went to the bakery at walmart and they sold me the box and the board for a dollar.. not too bad, but then again I dont do that many right now.. nor do I have the space... poor dh is losing floor space as we speak..

I buy them at one of the local cake supply stores. . .
I bought 100, 10x10x6 boxes for $25.00 I think, maybe it was less.
If you have a cake supply store close by, then buy as you need them.
Or if you know you're going to be using A LOT of a particular size, then
spend the $ & buy the pack, it's more economical in the long run. . .
I try to have a variety of boxes and cake boards handy so I don't have to go to the cake supply store too often icon_surprised.gif I know, can you believe I try to stay away???? Shocking isn't it? Well, the reason is, I'd buy the whole freaking store every time I go!!!!!!!!!! icon_cry.gif

I buy my boxes and boards at a local cake store. In a pinch you can buy them at Michaels.
