I did it. I made this cake...

I bought a plastic container from Sam's Club, like the ones supermarkets would sell a cookie cake in. Put the cake on a board that fit snugly in the container. Wrapped the cake in saran wrap, two layers. Laid it in the container, placed enough bubble wrap on top of it to fill the space between the cake & the top of the container. Then I put it in a box with bubble wrap underneath & on top. We shipped it overnight from Florida to South Carolina ($100)! Showed up perfect! thumbs_up.gif

HTH!

I think Sebrina has it down pat. The biggest part is making sure there isn't "slop" between the cake and it's plastic container, or between the plastic container and the box, otherwise there will be far too much banging around.
