[i]Where can I find custom cake boxes specifically designed for transporting cakes? I know I've seen them on the internet somewhere but have search all night with no luck. They are very sturdy and designed for seperate layers, even come with a foam pad in each box. Made of heavy corrugated cardboard....... Any ideas?
Never heard of that but here's a bump..I'd like to know too!
I don't know if they still do this, but Bakery craft used to sell boxes as part of a kit for wedding cakes. You would have to be a business to buy from them, although you might try and look them up online. They supply alot of cake kits to Wal-Mart and grocery stores. Other than that you could just find a box supplier and use the foam pads as cushioning. I transport all my cakes in boxes. The smaller tiers in white bakery boxes, the larger tiers in sturdy cardboard, I leave the white boxes for the client, but take the larger boxes back to reuse. I always put the non-skid pad in the box, especially if the board the cake is on is smaller then the box.
LadyGDiver= I looked up Bakery Craft under google, they have whats called a Wedding Merchandising Program that have the boxes with the pads, It looks like you have to sign in and be a member, but might be worth the try. Hope this helps.
I use an under the bed storage unit. All three tiers fit in the rubbermaid box. The cake bases are 8", 12" and 16" and I can get all three in the box. I put that foam shelf liner in the box and they do not move! I have a small moving cart that I got at lowe's to put the storage box on and my tool/repair lit goes on top of the box to get to set-up site in one move. I bring a couple of cheap cake boxes for left-overs to leave at the site. This has got to be the best $7.50 I've ever spent!!
