Im also after some sort of sighn to go on my car to say im transporting cake, i did see one at the n.e.c cake show and im kicking myself that i didnt buy one.

Any help would be great would have to be from a shop in the uk as it would be for christmas if i can find a box.

Hi there, I have a pretty big toolbox on wheels. It is fantastic! Has lots of small and big compartments and best thing is you can take it anywhere!! You can find them at any hardware stores, etc. Definitely a good investment! You will never have to search through your kitchen cupboards and drawers again!

As for the car magnets, CC sells one. Check out their online store. I am going to buy one some time soon.

The large tool box on wheels is a great (GREAT) idea!! I started with a large tackle box, now I have several and clear storage containers. If you start with something large - you might avoid the several thing, I have going on! icon_smile.gif

i found a great fishing tackle box-has lots of little compartments, drawers and cubbies-plus it's a fraction of the price as a for cake with a brand name on it. for my cookie cutters (if you have them) i've got clear tupperware the kind with clip on lids and a handle. separated into seasons/holidays. good luck!

I use the stackable drawers that WalMart sells. You can get them in all sizes. The best part is as you get more stuff, you can add to it. I love mine, and know where everything is now!! Best investment yet!

I bought the toolbox on wheels but actually that's been retired to the crawlspace basement because I LOVE the clear plastic drawers from Walmart like someone else mentioned! I have small ones for dusts and colors and larger ones for molds and large cutters and stuff. I wish I had more room, I'd ONLY have those for everything. They work awesome.

I have a pink toolbox that I carry to deliveries as my "emergency kit" I have dowels, toothpicks, straws, corsage pins, scissors, tape, etc. in there. I also put some of whatever icing I'm using in there too.

For my dusts and tips, I use a big parts pin that I picked up at the home improvement store. It's made for holding screws and washers, but has some small drawers (for tips) and some large ones that hold my petal/luster dusts (one bin for greens, one for reds, one for blues, etc). It's big enough that it sits on its own. I keep it underneath my work table so I can just reach down and grab what I need.

wow lots of idears, thanks. Seems like there is actully lots of ways people are storing there stuff. i found a proper box for the cake decorating stuff but it seemed quite cheap and didnt look like it would hold enuf stuff so i think im goin to have a look at the clear stackable draws and the tool boxes and see what i can find.

vista print i didnt think of them for a sign, i had them make me some buisness cards up just to give to family and friends and they was really cheap so think i will have a lok at a sign.

thanks again every one for your idears. x
