Hello everyone! I'm new to posting here, but this site often comes up in my Google searches, so I'm hoping you can help! I'm trying to get tips on how to transport cakes in a CAR (no SUV, van, etc.). Small cakes that fit in the floorboard are ok, but larger cakes will not fit down there. The rear seats in my car fold down...but they stay at a bit of an incline. I was thinking some kind of wedge to level the incline, then a piece of plywood or something that will fit across the back seats. Then of course a yoga mat or skid resistant mat to keep it from slipping. Ideas??? Thanks so much!

However you can best get a level surface, that's the way to go.

I use bath towels to level up my cake box in the back seat. My sister comes along with me when I have a cake to deliver. She sits next to the cake to make sure it does not move at all. I push the front car sear all the way back once the cake is in so that the box does not move forward at all.

When I carry cakes in my car I put them in a big clear plastic bin and set that on my passenger seat. I prop up the back with towels so it will be level. Then I move the passenger seat all the way up until the bin is wedged against the dashboard.

That sucker does not move at all. It's the very best way I have found, no need for non-slip mats even. icon_biggrin.gif
