I have an order for the wilton panda bear 3d cake. How in the world do I box this for her to pick up? Thanks everyone.
Set it in a deep box .. gently drape with saran wrap ... staple loose ends of saran to the sides of the box.
I usually use the cake boxes you can get at Michael's. When I have a taller cake, I chose a box size that fits the base and then I cut the tops off two boxes and use one of the bottoms as the top. Then tape it in place. I use the tops for other things, like drying fondant cut outs, so they aren't totally wasted.
Thanks so much for the picture, that helps!
Diane, thanks for that pic. that's how I boxed the cake I made today.
Sometimes, if it's a tall cake and the base board is 12" or smaller then I put it in one of those bankers file boxes and drape plastic wrap over the top. I also put a piece of gripper pad underneath to keep it from sliding. To put the cake in and take it out I put the box on a chair and lift straight up.
Does anyone have a favorite web site to buy boxes in bulk ? I am so glad I checked out this thread...answered some of my questions too. One of my biggest challenges is keeping "fuzz" out of the frosting. I love that blue plastic tarp or whatever it is on the table in the photo...I will definately try that one. I'll also take any other hints that you might share. I have always had trouble keeping fuzz out of my many endeavours....none of which the fuzz is a desirable accent. I'm off into the big world...check with you guys later. Blessings, Debra
