What Cake Board Do I Need?

We stock a huge range of high-quality cake boards and cake cards that are perfectly suited for use with any celebration cake. We stock silver, patterned and coloured cake boards in a variety of shapes and sizes, from 3” cake cards to 30" x 18" rectangle cake boards.

If you bake a lot of cakes then you can save money by buying our bulk packs of cake boards in quantities of five per pack. Buying in bulk will ensure that you get the cheapest price per cake board and it will help to keep costs down. We also offer combination packs of round or square cake boards with their matching sized cake box. These cake board and box combos are cheaper to buy than individual cake boards and boxes, and they are shrink wrapped to ensure that they are hygienic.
