Hi all. I am making my first stacked cake and I'm wondering how to deliver this? It will be a 6" stacked on a 9". I've done some searching on-line but I'm having trouble finding a box deep enough. I'd appreciate any suggestions. By the way, I have to say..... I LOVE this site and I'm blown away by how helpful everyone is!
I have seen people use packing type boxes for that purpose-I have never seen a cake box that tall. Make sure that you cake has a really good internal support system, and that you put a dowel from the top cake all the way down to the bottom cake to stabilize it so it doesn't slide off during the drive. Good luck!
Thanks CakeMommy 3...I appreciate the tips!
I ordered wholesale brown cardboard boxes - 12inch by 12inch by 9inch. these work for me great but if i have a figure on top I have to cut the top of the box open. a lot of bakeries dont give boxes and just deliver straight out of the boot of the car but i like to have some protection for it and its easier for the customer to deal with too.
i spent so long trying to find boxes too - lol
Sometimes, I just go to Walmart or UPS and buy boxes. I leave the top open. If it's raining, I get a new trashbag and cut it open and tape it to the top of the box. Hope this helps!
I havent checked it out yet...but a woman on here said she uses U HAUL boxes...there thick, sturdy and a nice size...they cost like 1.25-178 I think she said. She also stated she puts that kitchen drawer paper..from the dollar store, to prevent movement.
hope this helps.
Thanks so much everyone...lots of good ideas!
