Tall bakery boxes

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Has anyone found a place to purchase tall bakery boxes, like boxes over 7" tall? I'm finding that a lot of the cakes I do have decorations or something that put them over the standard 4"-6" cake box height. I'd love to find a place that offers bakery boxes over 7", do you know of one?? Thanks!! thumbs_up.gif

Hi Vanz icon_smile.gif I try to give myself and least an inch or so when getting a box, so for the two you need I'd do a 10x14 and a 11" or 12" for the round.

Most of my customers are people I work with, so I bring the cake to work and they take it home, which is why I always try to box them up. Lately though, the boxes have just been to short. icon_redface.gif

I didn't see any 7" tall boxes on that site. The tallest I saw was 5". Am I missing something?

I think she means if you click on the link, the page it takes you to has some shipping boxes, and those come in taller sizes. icon_smile.gif

Thanks KHalstead! Good luck with your move!

How about Uline. These are shipping boxes but I use them all the time.
I also stamp them and use my scrapbooking stuff to decorate them!

What I learned in a class is that you can put the cake in a box that is not tall enough. The way you do it is to position the lid of the box up where it doesn't touch your cake top, then tape it on each side in that position.

Maybe that will help until you can get taller boxes!

I saw that Risque, but how do you get a cake in and out of a box that opens at the top like that? You would have to leave a LOT of room to get your arms in it to pick up the cake and get it out it seems.

before you put your cake in you will have to cut down the side so you make yourself a flap.

the cover will hold this flap in place until you take it off at the deliver site.

Only a couple of times have I been lucky enough to close one of my cake boxes. Mostly it just bangs on the top when driving or walking. So anytime I have something on the top of my piece I make sure is Rock Solid so it doesn't break.

I am acually very impressed with how sturdy my cakes are!

Cutting down a side of a box or decorating a box just seems like so much more work after putting together my pieces. And at 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning I just don't care. icon_wink.gif

For tall cakes that are 12" or smaller, I use those file boxes/Banker's boxes, like these. They are nice and strong, inexpensive, easy for clients to handle, reusable and have handles too:
