Bakery Boxes?

Does anyone sell a small quantity of “to go” containers for baked goods? Cake boards and boxes for cakes, pies, tarts and cookies that are disposable. I don’t want have to remember to schlep a plate home.

I picked up a couple of the plastic cake carriers at my local Dollar Tree (when items were $1 and not $1.25).
Any who… I take cakes to friends’ houses in those if I know I’m going to leave them there for the host and hostess to enjoy the leftovers. I usually get them back next time I’m invited to their home, but am not worried if I don’t get it back.
I made a HUGE birthday cake for the hostess’ birthday not too long ago, I know the wife and her husband enjoyed it over that week. When I go there for their Superbowl party, I’ll retrieve the previous cake carrier.
The husband has requested a “hot milk sheet cake” that I made in the past, he very much enjoyed that treat!! I’ll put that one in a disposable foil “lasagna” pan (also from Dollar Tree). When they finish that cake, they can throw away the foil pan.

Jo-Ann craft stores do, or Michaels & similar stores should as well.


I’ve had luck, occasionally, just asking a local bakery (or a grocery store bakery dept) for a box. Sometimes they’ll charge me a buck or two. Sometimes they’ll just give you one. Couldn’t hurt to ask.

Probably helps if you buy something first…

Amazon for cake boards and boxes.

For the rest, I use repurposed takeout containers that work perfectly well for anything other than a loaf cake.

That said, people use cake carriers for exactly this reason (among others like protection) — you can remove the cake and take home your carrier.

Webstaurantstore sells small quantities - like 10 or 25. The craft stores like Michaels carry them. In NJ we have PartyFair which sells all that stuff in the catering supplies aisle.

Walmart, Joann’s, Hobby Lobby, Michaels and most crafting stores that sell home baking supplies like the Wilton brand carry them. I have asked local bakeries to sell me an odd sized box for something I didn’t have a box for, like a 9x13 inch cake. I used to buy stuff from Maid of Scandanavia years ago, too. Don’t know if KA supplies these.

Thanks, my wife is an artist/crafter and visits Michaels on a regular basis. I’ll put her on the case.

I buy them at a store that has party supplies or a store that sells organizational supplies. In Canada, Bulk Barn sells them as well, as do baking supply stores.
