I have no experience with a Cake Stacker but I do own a Cake Safe and I have to tell you I couldn't be happier with it! One of the first cakes I traveled , 200 miles over very bumpy roads, a 5 tier wedding cake. Since it was for a friends wedding I was equally nervous it wouldn't work and sure that if it didn't work that I would have lots of time to repair the damage and since the cake was a gift, if it ended up not what I had envisioned it would be ok. Well, not only was the cake ok, it was a DREAM to setup! No more hour to do set up! I simply pulled out the metal rod, plopped the cake topper on and I was DONE! The cake was PERFECT! Since then I have used it to travel hours away from my home town to deliver in other cities with my Cake Safe and not one cake has been even slightly damaged. Even thin sugar flowers have shown up in perfect shape. The stability it offers is amazing. So, yes, I can highly recommend the Cake Safe!
