Tiered Cake Boxes.......????

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
What do you all use to transport tiered cakes?

The standard cake boxes just don't have the height. Usually I'm doing a 2 tiered cake, and have been using regular card board boxes that I find at the grocery store. Do they make a cake box for tiered cakes?

I received a comment from a client that the cake 'smelled like the box'. 1st time I had heard that one, but don't want it to happen again.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

A Cake To Remember made a wonderful video about preparing the boxes she uses to deliver stacked cakes:

------------------------------

For smaller cakes that are not really tall, you can purchase brand new Sterilite or Rubbermaid containers that are in the 58-76 quart size. When turned upside down, the original lid becomes the bottom, and the container part becomes the "domed lid".

Turn them upside down, remove the "tall, domed lid". Put rubberized shelf liner on the "bottom". Put your cake on the rubberized shelf liner. Put on the "tall, domed, lid". Carry VERY carefully, and support the bottom with your hands!

I use a regular box, but tape the lid up so it doesn't touch my cake and then tape saran wrap over the opening. I haven't had a problem yet.

I rarely used boxes for anything other than birthday cakes. I used sheet pans in the car for tiered cakes--separate tiers.

I don,t box my tiered cakes. i sat each tier on non skid mat. This is also on thick egg crate foam on top of another nice thick firm foam. All this , protects my cakes.hth

I use boxes from disposable nappies - I have 50 thousand of them lying around. I tape two together to make whatever height is needed. If I was doing cakes professionally, though, I'd use something else.

For anyone in Aus looking for a really good box supply place that does a box specifically for tiered cakes, you could try this place:

I bought this box and loved it - perfect for transporting cakes of two or three tiers.

I have the same problem, and it sounds like many other bakers do too! I've submitted an idea on Quirky.com and would love to hear your comments and suggestions. Vote and comment here, and we can make this product a reality!

Emily, look at this site.  These are the kind of boxes that look like a professional delivery box.  Much better looking IMHO than a plastic top.

I love the bake-a-box tiered boxes, but have also decided that if brown shipping boxes are good enough for RBI, then its good enough for me icon_biggrin.gif

Yep! I use both. And it's so easy when you grasp the concept of closing one end of the box, and turning the box on it's side to slide the cake into. Bam! Done!

Thanks! I have seen those and they are a great option. I guess I'm looking for something that could be more durable (reusable) for those cakes that I deliver and set up on site, sometimes when the client isn't even there. I hate "wasting" the boxes.

Hello! The Walmart boxes are like 65 cents a piece. I don't consider it a waste. Often the client finds other uses for it.

I think the regular (white) cake boxes are great, and use them often, especially when people pick up the cakes, but the large tiered ones are much more expensive, and only available online (where I live), so if you are out, you're out of luck! My proposed carrier would be used for deliveries only, because the baker will take the carrier with her after setting up.
