Maybe a dumb Question, but I find most of my cakes, when they are on the drums, are too tall or the drum is too wide for the box, so when people come to get the cake, they are leaving with it uncovered. I have Wilton boxes... Are there others that are bigger, for taller cakes, or large drums?

Rainy season is here, and I hate to see a customer walk out with an exposed cake...

That happens to me sometimes too, especially if I have a topper. I just cut off the top of the box and cover with plastic wrap. Some people tape the top in an open position and cover the opening with plastic wrap. You can order taller boxes, but I like to keep just two sizes on hand for the sake of space. I always have plenty of 12X12X6 & 19X14X4

I prop the top up then cover the opening with press and works wonders because it sticks right where you put it
