AI bake and sell a lot of pound cakes and when they aren't iced they slide around in the box. Each of my cakes goes on a cake circle and then inside a cake box. The cake circle is the exact size of the box so it doesn't slide. However the cake itself slides all over the place. When the cake is iced I just put a dab of icing under the cake and it doesn't move. But a lot pound cakes are ordered uniced. Any ideas?

ASmear of corn syrup can work. Not usually as wrll as icing ir chocolate. Otherwise, could you package in a tin?

AThe tin would be too expensive and would jack up my prices. The corn syrup could work I guess. I worry about a sticky mess when my customers slice the cake though.

i'd still use a smear of icing--they are still getting an uniced cake but it is a secure good to go cake

AYou wouldn't think it was weird if you got a slice of cake with icing on the bottom.

no--i mean it's not fully icing the bottom of the cake--it's just a dab of glue to adhere it to the board--no problem-o--and it kind of dissipates a little into the cake--a couple 2-3  tablespoons would do it

 

another idea is to use a liner in the baking pan and adhere that to the board assuming the cake will stay put in the liner--like a huge muffin--

 

or get a smaller box--

 

or get a different type of box that snugs the cake in better--like this--i'm sure there's better prices but like these

Or bake in one of these types of disposable molds? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002JPJ064/?tag=cakecentral-20+cake+mold

No need to unmold or anything and you could get away with a smaller box, no need to put a cake circle under it...

Great point. I didn't think about the icing dissolving into the bottom of the cake. Thanks

Use a doily on the cake board.
