Which cake carrier do you use?`

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am looking to purchase a good quality cake carrier- one that I can use for a tall layered cake, not a tiered cake. Just a basic good carrier that has a good seal, and a good handle. Any recommendations? Which do you use? pros and cons? Thanks!

I use this one for family cakes and cupcakes. Just remove the cupcake holders. It works great and doesn't buckle under the weight. Mine's pink.

I have not used this one, but i have seen quite a few good reviews on it. This is the one I was going to suggest.

Not sure what part of this planet you reside in but for me i won't go past these cake/cupcake couriers.
http://www.thecupcakecourier.com.au/

Made in Australia by an Australian Company - but after appearing on Ophra some time ago they are available in the States.

So veryyyyy sturdy -
They have four snap lock locks at each corner...making them very secure.
The handle which is incorporated in the lid is very comfortable - no fear of it breaking loose - or falloing apart.

I carried my sisters birthday cake - a 2 tier cake as seen in link below in them from one side of australia to the other about 9 hours of flying and waiting at airports inclusive.

Have used them for a few years - never doubted them - never feared my cakes would crumble or fall out.

There are cheaper models out there
There are cheaper PLASTIC models out there

But my cakes are worth travelling in something secure and 100% food safe.

I won't buy or use cheap plastic crap from some far away place that doesn't have food safe standards.
I see so many in shops and on web sites - but when you read the small print you would be horrified to read - no food standards apply - thumbsdown.gificon_mad.giftapedshut.gif

I can't phraise thecupcake courier ones high enough.

You get what you pay for - and that about says it all.

You can use them to carry 36 cupcakes of a good height - or just for a tall cake.

True - but i got ditracted whilst doing my post and in the mean time you had already posted -
just a time overlapse... no drama.
Plus as i said in my origianal post - no location listed so not sure where the OP lives - so differnt links might be handy to him/her

No drama, I'm sorry if I came across that way. icon_redface.gif

I think that it is ironic that we all love the same item. Good stuff is good stuff icon_biggrin.gif

Looks good! I just want to make sure you are talking about the three tier cupcake courier? That works well for a round birthday cake? How do you secure the cake plate down to the carrier? ( I am a She btw icon_rolleyes.gif )

I use the stuff you can line your shelves with...not sure what it's called. It's grippy. Dollar store's finest!
