Flat surface and non slip shelf liner under the cake and if you can, under the box if you have one.

Can you just put the cake in a box and put it in the trunk? Can you transport tiered cakes in a car?

I'd really like to do a tiered cake for my aunt's 60th, but it has to survive a 2 hour car drive. And we're going straight to a restaurant...don't really have time or space to assemble it on site...

how many tiers are we talkin? If you've got time order some SPS plates and your cake will be fine. Again shelf liner under the cake board and then under the box the cake is in.

2 tiers should be able to make it without SPS, right? I hope? Dowel down the middle?

I use plastic storage totes, like sterilite or rubbermaid. I just turn the tote upside down and use the lid as a base. The only problem is you only have so much "upward" cake space. But, if you got a deep tote, you should still be able to use that for a tiered cake, up to a certain layer. Then my husband will strap it into the car seat for me just, just like the precious cargo it is.

Great idea! I'll see if I can get an appropriately sized container.
