I have a client picking up a 2 tier cake (12 in & 10 in). Normally if I deliver larger cakes I just put them in my car and deliver them without a box. . but she's picking it up? do they make boxes big enough for those cakes? what do you do?

Sure. Visit your local office supply store, buy a packing box, tape the top and bottom and cut down a side to make a "drawbridge."

Wal*mart has cheap 12", 14", and 16" cubed boxes in the moving section.

Make sure the customer signs a wavier disclaiming you of all responsibility and indicating that you recommend against picking up tiered cakes. Also take a picture of the cake beforehand.

Thanks Jason. . .in my contract there is a "pick up" clause releasing any responsibility on my part once it leaves my possession.

and I will definitely take a picture!!
