I'm making a 3 tiered hula cake for my niece's 5th birthday this weekend and I need to figure out how to transport this thing over an hour and a half on bumpy back country roads. I can do cake boxes but how do I keep them from sliding around in the boxes themselves? What do you all do?
Thanks for any ideas!
Well...You could use electrical tape to secure your cakeboard & Cake to the box. Loop the tape upon itself, adhere it to the middle of your cake box, and then sit the cake on top of that. I hope I explained it well.
when I transport cakes I either use towels to set the cake on or that rubbery stuff that you use as a jar gripper. I'm not sure what it is called, but you can buy it by the roll. Sorry I can't explain it better!
It has several names..LOL I just bought some this past weekend at Home Depot, and it was called Sur-Grip.
That stuff works great. I use it all the time!
Thanks so much! I didn't even think about using that. You've all been a huge help!
Thanks mochaboi, my mind went totally blank on that one!
I'm not sure if this is more cost effective... but there is similar stuff like the Sur-Grip for protecting your car's seats from infant/toddler carseats. We bought ours at The Right Start for about $12 but it's atleast 4 feet long by 2 feet wide....
just found it...
I always use the rubber stuff you see sometimes in cabinets.....it's great!!!!!!! I've never had a problem............plus........I get the same color as the interior of my car........looks like it belongs in there!!!!!! Ha!
I usually transport my tiered cakes on top of the grippy shelf liner stuff in a box. I use foam sheets to line the back of my SUV and put the boxes on top of the foam.
