Not forgetting about bird crap either, unless you carry the uncovered cake in one hand and a scarecrow in the other...

Yes, of course! :lol:  What I meant was the cake doesn't come out of the car until the rain stops. So far the rain has always stopped. If it didn't,  I'd cover the cake in the giant plastic bag and also have someone hold the huge umbrella I bring. I almost always deliver at least 2 hours before the event starts.

 

It can be an issue. Once I had a 3 tier topsy turvy delivery to one of those party places and of course with those, there's no arriving two hours in advance. It was going to start raining any second and the 10 year old that was running the place was saying I couldn't bring the cake in yet.  I had to quickly help her see the light. lol It wouldn't have been fun bringing in that cake in during the pouring rain. Of course if i invested in a cake safe...but seriously, we'd have gotten the cake in fine - it just would have been a pita. That's very rare compared with hassling with a huge box every time I deliver a cake.

Oh come on, what are the odds of that?

That goes for pick-ups, too.

If I felt that way about food ever being exposed to air, I'd have never enjoyed a picnic or BBQ.

That's just silly -I guess it should stay in the box during the entire wedding reception then too?  And be taken out just before cutting? What on earth do you think is going to happen to the cake? Do you wear a mask while baking, icing and decorating?

I was just about to post the same thing.  Now, I have a mental image of y'all cooking dinner in biohazard suits.

 

 

I will not eat a cake that was in a box with a fox wearing socks.

 Ha ha ha probably not helpful but very funny to read. P.S it's good luck to be crapped on by a bird so the bride should take it as a good omen if a bird happens to make a deposit on her cake.

;-D

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .

Not only do I not box mine, but I pre-sneeze my cakes and snuggle the neighbors cat before stacking.

 

 

I rarely jump on the 'it's the customer's fault' bandwagon when it comes to collapsing cakes, but the red icing on the tennis rackets, and the way the red globs are placed in the car, makes me think they had it in on a pretty steep angle to fit into the back seat.

I just made a huge and very, very heavy cake.  I won't be lifting it into a box, but I will be putting in in my vehicle and covering it with a box.  I can totally see why a large cake would be difficult to box.

What are you protecting it from?

 

Maybe part of this has to do with the delivery vehicle in question. I can see there might be some issues where a car is used to haul the soccer team, eat happy meals, haul pets, bikes and other sports equipment, luggage, change diapers, drive home drunk and throw up in (just trying to think of unsanitary things, not making a reference to anyone on this thread!).  But at the opposite end what about a vehicle dedicated to cake delivery?  A cake sitting inside there is not all that different from one sitting inside the bakery.

 

And I assume no one would just set the cake directly on anything in the car. I always lay down a lovely fresh, clean, white sheet.

Large cake that can't go in a box - delivery only.

Any other cake that a customer insists on picking up? Box.
