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. icon_smile.gif

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
