How do you package tiered cakes

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What boxes or packaging techniques do you use for tiered cakes? I havent found anything that works... I usually just put in a regular cake box, tape the sides open and cover with press n seal but it doesnt look nice and bothers me.

Do you mean to let people pick the cake up? I don't usually let people pick up tiered cakes, but when they have to I put it in a brown corrugated box from Staples. I prefer security over looks in cases like that!

i love the bake-a-box tiered cake box for storing and transporting, but they are a bit spendy to include for customer pick up. So far, i don't let customers walk with a tiered cake, only delivery. But i'll have to check out those Staples boxes.

I also use a corrugated box. I use a box cutter to cut a slit 2 corners of one side so I can slide the cake in. If the box isn't the exact size of the cake base, I place a non slip mat under the base, then another non slip mat on the floor of my minivan and place the box on that.

Are the bake-a-box tiered cake boxes thick cardboard? Or are they the flimsy thin cardboard

No slicing and slitting necessary! Assemble one end of the box, and turn the box on it's side. Non skid pad, slide your cake on in, and close up the box with packing tape.

Many times, the cake is taller than the closed box, but fine if I tent the flaps. In that case, I need to slice the sides Also, for my own neurotic piece of mind, I like to be able to open the top to peak in at the cake from time to time. thumbs_up.gif
