Suggestions for Cake Box

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello Everyone,

 

I wanted to find out, how to box your cakes? For large tiered cakes, I usually take the tiers in separate boxes and then assemble them at the party. However, for small cakes (1-2 tiers, each one of them being at least 4" tall), how do you box them? Do you buy boxes at Home Depot ? How do you deliver them (boxed or open)? I never deliver cakes without a box but its getting more and more difficult to transport cakes with a cover. 


Please advise.

Thank you,


Kosha

You can use two cake boxes. Place one inside the other with the top flaps facing each other. Form a tent with the flaps and tape them together. This should fit two tiers.

www.bakeabox.com....their tiered cake boxes are awesome! For bigger tiered cakes, I rig one up with moving boxes.

I get moving boxes also at my local Walmart. I assemble the box and then cut down from top to bottom on one side and then at the bottom I cut across and stop at the next corner. This makes a "door" that can be taped up and when delivered untapped and the cake is easily taken out of the box.

You know if you lay it on it's side so the top and bottom are facing you, and assemble one end, you can just slide it in and tape it up? Then you don't have to cut on it. So in these cases, you buy wider boxes versus taller boxes, since the "wide" will now be the "tall" that you need. I hope that made sense. :D

I buy all my white bakery boxes from Back River Paperbox Company -  - they sell them in wonderful heights and with window tops.  I purchase mine in quantities of 100 to avoid paying for shipping.

I don't see tiered boxes, or am I on the wrong page?

Sorry I should have been more clear. The moving boxes I buy from Walmart come in 12", 14", & 16" tall.

Thank you all for your helpful suggestions. Do you generally leave the box with the customer or bring it back? I'm assuming you would include that in your charge for the cake.
