The way I see it, you've got bigger problems than the board fitting in the box....

A 9x13 cake on a 10x14 board is only going to give you 1/2" around the entire perimeter. Once you add your border edge there won't be any room at all.

A 10x14 board will fit in your box, but the height won't be enough. If you bake 2" layers (=4" cake) you'll need filling + icing on the cake + any decorations. You won't be able to close the lid on this box.

Well, I'm not sure that Wilton makes the silver covered 1/2 inch cake drums in rectangles anymore........

They do make some thin silver cardboard cake "platters". I personally wouldn't put a 2 layer cake on one and expect it not to flex/bend.

I also feel that only an inch around the perimeter is not enough. By the time you add icing and a border, you may have only a 1/2 inch of clearance.

I cut my own boards from 1/2 inch foamcore and cover with the Wilton silver foil and for a 9x13, my board would be 11x15--at least--depending on decoration.
