Crumbcake, if you have ANY concerns whatsoever, just contact Scott or Juli at www.cakesafe.com and they will answer any questions you may have. I talked to them a lot when I first got mine, they really are top notch folks who care about their products. (and BTW, I no longer center dowel my cakes that are delivered in the cake safe - the rod goes right through the foam core I use - which is 1/4" and 1/2" - the system is foolproof!) You'll love it and not know how you did deliveries without it once you use it!
Knowledge is a candle that when shared, doubles the light, but the insecure person believes knowledge is a candle that is diminished when it is split between two wicks.

The cake made it!!!!!!!! I brought the cake safe!!!! Both companies were very nice and professional. They took the time to answer all of my questions. Here's a picture of the cake. I cut one the dowels shorter and it caused the cake to lean a little. This made me think of cake stackers.

I have a cake safe and have been using it to do deliveries on small hill town roads. So here's my opinion. It is good, and for the most part does what it says. You can tier the cake ahead of time and make sure it is level and even. The cake does remain intact and perfect even on long deliveries. We deliver up to 3 hours in heat. I use cardboard rounds and dowels with the system. The downside is the materials are not that great. My husband dropped one of the sides (which is just a corrugated plastic) and it broke a little. So for the money I would expect something a little more heavy duty. And it does nothing at all for temp control. We have to take the time to create a second cold storage box around it using cold pack, foam, and a shipping box for transport in heat for the cake to arrive cold - even on 1/2 hour trips. The hole in the top is not a big deal. It does not allow you to get creative with the stacking as the center dowel has to go in a straight line through the center of the cakes to work properly. We are investing in a cake stacker system since we do high end weddings and have been getting requests from our planners for chandelier and topsy turvy cakes.

I purchased the cakeSafe box last week and I love it! I had to change my thinking about it when it came to the expense. Atlanta traffic on the weekends has gotten worse and worse especially with road construction tossed in. I can't afford to ruin a brides wedding day. I decided when I take a deposit I will put the money up for a CakeSafe. I purchased a sheeter a couple of years back and I don't know how I lived without it, I feel the same way about the CakeSafe. My clients are worth it and so is my piece of mind.

hi everyoneI i just wanted to know, do you reuse the cake stackers?do you collect them from the venue or do you ask your clients to return it? they're priced at about ~$150 and i was wondering if you just dispose of them (and add it to the cost of the cake) or reuse them (and collect them at the end of the reception)? thanks!
