Who Sells Cake Carriers?

I didn't know where to post this, but I need to find someplace in the 5 boroughs that sells cake carriers (useful when you are bringing a cake somewhere). This is for Thanksgiving, so mail order is pretty much out of the question. New York Cake & Baking Distributors doesn't sell them and they were pretty snippy when I asked if they knew who might. It doesn't have to be fancy, and I'd prefer it had a handle. Ideas?

Steph, I have one (Tupperware from the dark ages) It may not be beautiful but its perfectly acceptable. You can borrow it.

They are snippy about almost everything. I try to boycott them if at all possible by either purchasing out of Manhattan or by mail order.

What about a place like Lecters or William Sonoma. You could probably check on line or phone and then go to a local store.

We recently found a nice one at The Container Store--decent size square, 5" high, clear plastic with a snap-on lid and with a flat, white lift-out base with two handles. Would probably serve you very well. I think the brand name of the line of plastic containers is "Decor" from Australia. We use alot of them.

There is also a very nice long rectangular container in the same line with a lift out base just perfect for a Buche de Noel or other roulade-like cake. It's called a "Marinator/Storer."

I dislike the "customer service" at N Y Cake & Baking as well.

Other places to try are Bed Bath & Beyond, The Kitchen Store (L --- something?), and those big grocery stores that sell tupperware or something like it. Linens and Things, the Container Store. Places like this usually have a stock of plastic things to tote stuff around in. Run down the hall and ask someone's grandmother - all grandmother's have these things. :biggrin:

Thanks for the suggestions. Steve, I'll check out The Container Store; if they sell square carriers then they ought to sell the round ones I'm looking for.

Stefanyb: If I am completely unsuccessful at acquiring a "permanent" carrier, I will certainly take you up on your offer. Thanks!
