Hello all. I am currently using another business kitchen so I dont have to deal with walk-in customers. I am in the process of opening my own shop and I know that some customers will want single cupcakes. I will have boxes for dozens and I will have bags for single cinnimon rolls/ cookies but what do you guys use for single cupcakes. I would like to have one size that will work if you buy less than a dozen. Just thought I would see if anyone has any ideas. The single cupcake boxes are such a high percentage of my total cost. Thanks

I use a 8"x8"x2.5" bakery box for cupcakes less than a dozen. It holds 9 perfectly!

I know you asked this question a while ago, but I'd thought I'd post anyway....we use a styrofoam cup and plastic lid from Dart. They run about 17 cents for both pieces as opposed to 46 for the box and insert from BRP. I can't remember the size of the cup off the top of my head, but I'd be happy to look tomorrow and let you know.

Don't get me wrong we love BRP and sell the cute single boxes as well.

I'd love to know about the Dart cups. Single containers always seem like such a waste unless they are being done as gifts. Usually people pick up a single to eat right away or for the kids.
