I don't use corrugated card board but I do use 2 cake boxes put together like this and then wrapped with plastic wrap.

I transport up to 4 tiers assembled all the time and they fit fine in the box.

The smaller boxes (10" and under) don't have the gap but I still wrap with plastic wrap to prevent any fuzzies getting on the cake.

And each box is under a dollar to it's not that expensive either.

I use moving boxes from Home Depot. They don't have a lid, just flaps. I tape the top shut with instructions to cut the side of the box to get the cake out. They cost $1.29 for a large box. I put a small square of nonslip drawer liner inside, under the cake board.

After looking at boxes on-line I did something similar to Texas_Rose. I just cut down the side of a moving box. I taped the sides back up so it would easily pull down, then I could slide the cake in and out. I also put the cake on top of nonslip liner. Worked like a charm!

Do ya'll leave the box with the customer?
I do the cake boxes so I can just leave them there, sometimes I deliver a cake hours before the event and I would't want my cake sitting there uncovered for who knows what to get on it or touch it.
I had a customer once who thought I had used an old moving box for their cake, I did'nt, I had gone to Walmart and bought a brand new box but it was sill akward explaining that the box was not a used moving box.
So since then I stick with the cake boxes.

I don't have customers, just friends and family who are lucky enough to get a cake icon_biggrin.gif Most of them are going out of town or across town with the cake and I don't deliver. So they pick up the cake in its box and take it wherever they're going. Nobody has asked if it's a new box or not. One ballsy relative snuck the cake into the Cheesecake Factory for a big dinner party, saying it was a large birthday gift inside the box.
