Storage of Cake Box

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any suggestions on storage of cake boxes so as not to take up too much space? I have all sizes boxes starting from 6" up to full sheet and they just take up so much room. Stacking works for maybe three sizes then it gets too heavy. I just need more room and better storage for easy access.

Thanks!

I know where you are coming from!!! I keep mine over two freezers...stacked on top. The other day I went to pull one down, and the entire stack fell on my head! Of course, I had to take time fix them again, and that took me away from the cake I was finishing. I need some ideas, too!

I built a custom shelf unit for my boxes using 20x30 1/2 inch foamboard and 4 inch long pieces of PVC pipe. I just glued pipe to each corner of the board, then glued the next board on top, and so on.

I think I saw some storage that was like a shelf system, but sideways. So they store on their ends...

I don't like storing them vertically because they droop and curve. That's just me, tho.

You'll definitely want to store them horizontally, if you can find a cabinet (or build a custom one) that fits the biggest size box folded in half with some extra shelves that would be ideal.

The annoying part is folding each box in half when you first buy them, but it doesn't really take that long.

. I agree, but it would work if they were somehow adjustable, and able to pinch against them and hold them up a bit...

I buy from BRP. I keep them in the box they came in. I cut the front sides halfway down and I can slide them out. They don't roll. I have some on shelves and the biggest, 14 x 10, are on a rolling plant stand because they have to be off the ground. I just put them up against the wall.
