Thanks!

Can you go to a local cake supply store and get just a few?  That is what I do.

I have such weird sized cakes, so I create my own from regular cardboard boxes. There is a little time involved, but its super cheap, custom fit & very sturdy. Just seal all open edges w/tape, lay box on side, cut the side flaps in half & lay over the bottom flap then tape. For a window I use plastic wrap. I use packing tape because its sturdy and makes everything air tight. And sometimes I use rubber shelf liner for that extra sense of security to keep cake board from sliding.
Works great! Hope that helps!
Also instruct client to place cake on floor not seat and to be slower with starts/stops/turns while driving.
