ISO: candy wrappers

I searched here but perhaps I'm using the wrong terminology. I'm looking for the little (waxed, I think) wrappers that I can use for making homemade caramels. They can be plain but different colors would be cool. I'd prefer a source on the UWS but anywhere else is fine too.

Thanks for any pointers!

  1. I know what you are talking about, and they are hard to find! I hand-cut small squares of waxed paper to the size I need. I haven't found any in Manhattan, sad to say.
    You might try NY Cake on w22nd st, but I had no luck there a year or so ago. They have plenty of candy cups and bags, but not these little squares.

      NY Cake carries foil candy wrappers.

    2. Thanks to both of you. I knew there was a cake supply place that people always mention and couldn't figure it out. And iluvcookies, thanks for the do-it-yourself idea. I hadn't thought of that.
