CakeSafe vs. Cake Stacker System which is better?

post #1 of 85

Looking for to buy a system to help me travel with a cake without any issues. Please share your experience with either the cakesafe or cake stacker system.

I have done my research but wanted to hear from people who own the cake safe or cake stackers. I love that the cake safe protects the cake from the elements, but the cake stacker system is cheaper and seems like you can do more with it.

Here is another system that supposed to be very good. (I've never bought one of the systems- but the stress free is the one I seriously considered.) Just what you needed -a third choice! icon_smile.gif

I use my stress free supports with my cakesafes.
Cakesafe is the only reason I am still making wedding cakes. It has taken all the stress and worry out of deliveries. All the cakes arrive in mint condition, and deliveries take me less than 15 minutes from arrival through photos. We live 30 minutes from any venue, over really bumpy country roads. We have NEVER had a problem since using our cakesafes.

Not only is it great on the cake, but I can't tell you how many venue managers get excited when they see us coming. Last weekend a manager says, "Oh, THERE is my favorite cake person! And she's got her fancy box! I always know the cake is going to look great when you show up with that box!" It has truly maximized my reputation as the baker who will deliver a cake that a venue doesn't have to worry about. (and it looks SOOOOO much more sanitary than delivering a cake straight from the back of a minivan!!!)

My stress free supports are another reason my weddings cakes look so good. I can level the supports before they go into the cake. That way, even if the icing is a little off, the cake ends up level. And there are only 4 little holes going into my cakes, no matter what the size, and NO cutting supports! TOTALLY worth the $$.

Both these are godsends, and no I'm not being paid to endorse either!

Hi JenMat,
Do you also use the plastic circles that come with the stress free cake supports or do you use foamcore? I have the stress free cake supports and am trying to decide if I should buy the plastic circles. Tnx

Hi Luv2bake4u,
I use regular old cardboard circles- I tape 3 together for each tier. Foamcore sometimes on the bottom tier if its really large, or even a wood hardboard under that for really big cakes, or fondant cakes, where the legs could cause dents in the foamcore.
For me the acrylic plates would have to be drilled through to use the Cakesafe, and then lined up accurately. Too. much. work.
HTH!

Thank so much jenmat for all of your advice!!! I have fallen love with cafe, but I would love more opinions/ reviews on the cake stacker system. And you're right Norie I didn't need a third option.

I think you'll find more Stress Free users than Cake Stackers. For the longest time I haven't heard of anyone using them.

How do we use dummies to suspend cakes like this one?

I personally think they are both a waste of money, but that's me. If I were to consider either it'd be the cake safe though. The cake stackers system is too much $$$ to have to trust others with. If you didn't get it back... ugh.. and you'd have to charge a deposit on it and have multiple sets. People have a hard enough time paying for cakes... nevermind the $$$ dollar security deposit.
