My new Cakesafe box! OMG!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 52
I am not in the cake business, just hobby, every so often, for fun decorator so there is no way I'm going to buy this. But if I were, that would be an investment quickly made. Every business has it's overhead costs and This would rate with mixer, good pans , sound oven etc. Just because you've got along fine without it before, doesn't mean you shouldn't add it to arsenal of tools now. I want to see how long it is before the TV pros start using it- particularly that gal in New York who has to carry the cakes down flights of stairs.

It is not refridgerated but made of insulating materials so it helps keep your cake at a good temperature. I'm more concerned with the toppling over thing...one good bump or stomp on the breaks and a stacked cake is going sideways on you.

I actually thought about the refrigeration thing...would be awesome if there was a way to make it into a portable refrigerator (like a battery operated box w/ a hose that hooks into a hole in the side of the cake safe or something, that could pump cold air in it) That would be amazing wouldn't it?? lol


In any case, my melty cake did just fine and though it was 95 degrees outside and IN my house....my car was even hotter when I got in and my ac is terrible!! It only comes out the defrost on the windshield not the regular vents (have no clue why), so even though by the end of the hr. drive my car was somewhat cool....it wasn't cool whatsoever to begin with and the cake safe I'm sure protected it from melting further.

The sides of the cake safe are clear (as you can see in the photo I attached on page 1) but look similar to corrugated cardboard if you look at the sides......probably close to 1/4" thick as well........they're lightweight but very sturdy and because air is between the sheets of "glass" (It's plastic not glass), it helps to keep the temp. from affecting the cake.

Would be so awesome if there was a way to adapt it to being a refrigerated case though wouldn't it?? Even if there was no battery but plugged into your cigarette lighter or something. Then you wouldn't even have to refrigerate your cakes, just pop em' in the cake safe and be on your way!

What and interesting variety of responses! I can see how the suggestion that I work for the cakesafe company might seem like a logical conclusion, until I saw the other posts from other people who have cake safes! It's so great to hear other people who feel the way I do about this thing! Best thing since sliced bread as far as I'm concerned!
As for my employment status, I'm just a lonely self employed baker in upstate NY, but if this cakesafe company takes off, I'm probably gonna wish I worked for them!

ibake, maybe you should consider talking to them on working for them on a commision basis so while you promote them you could earn enough to buy all the cakesafe boxes you want.

I agree about the refridgeration idea. Would be nice. Even if was electrical, you can get adapters for the car chargers

I have one here in Ohio too. For those that have a cake "business" - it would be just like buying anything else quality that you want to last. How much did you spend on an agbay? Your commercial mixer? Your magic line pans? I know how much I spent! This system is fool proof. And yes the sides are made of a material that does "insulate" the cakes. IF your cake is chilled - it will stay cool in the cake safe.

How much do you charge for your cakes? For a lot of us, the expense for a quality, made in america product from a small business (like my cake business) it is well worth the cost for the peace of mind and years of use you will get from a cake safe.

Scot and Juli are TOP NOTCH buisness folks. If any of you have ever talked with them, you would know how kind and generous they are. I wish them all the luck with their business, it definately has a LOT of potential!

ibake247, I'm glad noone hurt your feelings...
We've had many companies sign up and try to sell their product through the years, so we've gotten a little touchy about it.

I was thinking the same thing! I also read the Wilton forum and saw your exact same post this morning with the same username. I admit it crossed my mind as well that you could work for them or have an intent to advertise kind of post...but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt and happy you love your $$$ purchase! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Chasey, I just figured that when I read a post on the wilton forum re: dowels, and stacking tiers, etc... and I responded, that I should post on cc too. The whole idea of these forums is to share info about what works, etc... I was hoping it would be useful info for everyone who feels the way I do about deliveries - they're too stressful! I also dropped a cake on my way into the front door of a country club once, and noone should have to have that experience! You know how hard it is getting buttercream off the curb in a hurry?? It's a great story now, but at the time, well, it really, really sucked!

I looked @ their site and saw the video last night and was wondering of the rod has a pointed tip? And I did see the price and for what you are getting I am not surprised. It actually is a great idea for someone with the funds and storage space.

Yes, the rod's tip is pointed - goes right through with no problems!

Cake Atillier (not sure of spelling on that one!) DEFINATELY needs one of each size, I cringe everytime I watched them carry cakes down their stairs and into cabs. icon_eek.gif

Loucinda- two minds with the same thought about Lauri Dutinno--Cake Alchemy. I hated watching them carry the cakes down those stairs. I actually e-mailed her and mentioned the cake boxes and this posting to her as an option for those stairs. She very nicely e-mailed back hoping I would continue to watch, and she also said that they had moved to a building with an elevator. No more stair nightmares.

It wasn't just them going down the stairs that freaked me out...it was hailing a CAB and using them for a delivery vehicle! Not only are cabs dirty and smelly at times...they don't always drive in the most cautious manner. THAT to me is a nightmare! icon_lol.gif

I just spent the last half hour watching all their videos... the Cake Safe looks like a dream! I'm just a hobby baker now, but if I ever get to go into business one day, I'll be purchasing the Cake Safe (right after my Agbay of course).

I get such cake tool envy, sigh.
