I've posted, searched and researched all weekend about packaging, but I just can't figure this out! I bought 9" styrofoam rings (only about 3/4" thick) that I intend to use as the base for this (and two other similar) cupcake wreath:

I have been looking for a cake or similar bakery box WITH A WINDOW that is 12" x 12" x 4" but I can't seem to find anything other than two wholesale places that make me buy 100 minimum.

Any thoughts as to either (1) where I might find smaller purchase ability for this box (and I've been scouring all bakery packaging sites all weekend and it's apparently not a common combination!!!!) or (2) a different packaging idea?

The only other thing I thought about is something like this:

but I'd have to use larger diameter discs and larger cellophane. I'm not sure if this would ruin the artwork on top of the cupcakes.

I would appreciate any experience or suggestions!

Wilton has a 12x12x6" cake box with a window on their website.

It is not pictured, but it's an option to select.

My Local Cake supply shop sells boxes that size but not with the window. I go there almost every three days, they always have a large amount on hand I know they ship but not sure of the cost for that since they are local for me. May be search for cake supplie shops in your area. Good luck super cute wreath

I get my boxes from Hobby Lobby (I don't do enough cakes to buy in bulk) and they have a 12x12x6 with a window. HTH icon_smile.gif
