AHello friends!!! I'm in need of ideas on how to get a stacked caked from Chicago to Atlanta in one piece. I use the SPS stacking system but I will not be traveling with the cake. I am looking for advice from anyone who has sent a cake on an 11 hour plus trip. I was thinking about sending the cake frozen hoping it would offer more stability.
Thanks in advance!
AI should point out its a big cake 14-12-10-8-6 inch cakes
So how is it getting there? In someone's car? If so, just put it in a box the same size as the cake drum, tape it up and load into the SUV or van (hopefully.) As IndyDebi always says, if a cake will travel 5 miles, it will travel 50. Or 500.
Thanks Leah, It is going in someones car. I am waiting to hear what kind of car she has. Thanks for the advice.
In addition to what leashs said, make sure they put the cake on a *flat* surface. The trunk probably would be best. Aslo advise them that they need to be careful driving - no sudden stops, tight turns etc.
Right, I've advised her to bring some plywood becasue she has an accord and I think they have bucket seats in the back. This way if the cake doesn't fit in the trunk the back seats will be level. I used to have an Altima and I had a hard time getting tall cakes in the trunk. However I also always but down that rubber drawer lining materaial so the box becomes non-skid.
I had to transport a delicate chocolate wedding cake once in van. We placed the cake on a non-slip mat on the floor of the van, and also wrapped bubble wrap around it to protect it as much as possible. Fortunately it arrived in one piece!
