I put shelf liner down under the cake in the back of my suburban and drive real slow.

The shelf liner works great! No sliding, and be sure your cake is on a sturdy board- wood works best for me, on large cakes. Otherwise any "give" to the board { foam } tends to crack the icing. At least with buttercreme. Hope this helps. Good luck and be sure to post picture when your done. Clarissa

It also helps to put up a sign in your car saying you are transporting cake. Then people don't tail gate as much. And they are less rude about your extra cautious driving.

i've never transported a large cake before, but i recall other posts suggesting you have excellent support under your cake, not just cardboard. get a good, straight wood panel to hold your cake level, especially if it's long like a guitar cake.
