I have to make a large cake that will be sitting outside for an event. The cake is too large to be kept in the box. Is there anything that I can put on the cake to protect it from bugs, flying dirt, etc? Is there such a thing as a cake net?

I don't know about cake nets. How large is the cake? I'm thinking sitting the cake on the table and have a much larger box, taller and wider (UPS store or a box from a moving co) than the cake and placing the box over it. I hope this helps.

what about putting the cake on a table setting it up and then useing plastic table clothes to put over it and tape them to the under side of the table so bugs cant get in.

If no access to net buy some tulle. (the stuff they use in weddings, it is a fine net like material and not very expensive)

What about a clear plastic tub turned upside down. I use these to transport my cakes as well. You can get different heights and sizes. icon_wink.gif

I personally wouldn't want my cake covered in a box to be displayed. I'd try to set it up with some type of net and make it look really nice.

What about the mosquito like netting they some time hang over beds? If it was set up under a canopy or some thing you could suspend the netting from the top/roof of canopy/whatever and let it cascade down around the cake it would look beautiful and magestic. They have those netting at target....
