Do you all deliver your tiered cakes in SUVs? - Page 3

post #31 of 53

I agree with AZCouture, the element is great for deliveries.  Seats fold up the side not laying down flat.  Lots of room for more than one cake delivery.  But before that I've taken lots of cakes in back seats always using the towel method.  In fact I still use towels as non skid mats

Is it possible to post a picture of your husband's handy work with the car shelf? I have a Camry and I know my husband would rather make a shelf than buy a CRV.

I'll ask him to draw out the plans & list if materials. The dimensions will be different for each car.

JSK, I said the same thing! I told him Lots of bakers would want one. He's not interested. He said its so simple anyone can do it. It doesn't even take no tools (good thing since we dot have them). He said he'd rather be useful & share the plans with everyone. Love him!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I agree...a lot of men wouldn't go through that trouble. In fact my dad frowned when he found out my mama and I were learning to decorate cakes together.

Awww, he's a gem! I haven't seen that Reese Witherspoon movie. I'll see if I can find it.

Okay I ended up having to get a frozen pizza for my dad's birthday as well so here's what I did. The pizza was put in an insulated bag. My cakes were put in two cake carriers, with a piece of shelf liner between the cake boards and the bottom of the carriers. The cargo area of my PT Cruiser was lined with shelf liner as well. I placed the cake carriers in the cargo area with the insulated bag between them to act as a cushion. I turned my AC on as my thermometer was saying it was 79 degrees and the weatherman said it would be humid (welcome to summer in the Deep South!) and started out on the forty minute drive to my parents' house. No problem once I hit the interstate but then I had to take AR 365 and hit some hilly terrain and when I opened the rear gate...THE CAKES WERE RIGHT WHERE I LEFT THEM!!! thumbs_up.gif

DeliciousDesserts  what a great idea, do you place your tiers in a box and then on the shelf ?

I take my cakes, stacked up to 4 tiers in the trunk of my honda accord. I do use bath towels to stop the sliding.

My cakes are typically HEAVY.  Seriously, they are very heavy.  3 tiers or less, I stack and put on that front seat space.  It's sturdy & wonderful.  Some 4 tiers I can put in the front.  

 

Anything over 4 tiers or really heavy, I assemble on site.  In that case, the bottom tier is stacked on the stand and placed in the back alongside the other boxed tiers.  The top tier or anything that makes me particularly nervous rides up front next to me.
