Recently on FB an ad showed up for a large plastic box with a center support for transporting a stacked cake. I looked at the image in the ad of a lady holding the box at an angle and the ad saying protect your cake and it will be save during transport. I didn't give much credibility to the ad because of the way the woman in the ad was holding the box I could tell it was a fake cake. I thought no way she would be able to so easily hold a 4 tired cake that way it would be so heavy. Well I now want to do some investigation on the box but can't find the ad. As anyone see it or do you know what I am talking about? If someone could post a link to a website with info about the box I would appreciate it. I wish I had looked more closely at the ad. I have several cake orders in the next three months I need a safer transport method.
I imagine it would be an ad for Cake Safe. Lol, there was quite a commotion about Cake Safes here last year!
I think you are right. Thank you. Now about that commotion. What was the problem? Is it a bad product? My husband helped me deliver a cake today and he said I needed some sort of box with a center support and then he drew a picture and it was just like that cake safe box. So I thought I better investigate.
Oh, no not at all! I hear it's fantastic. There was just a LOT of publicity on this site for them last year and it became the standing joke for a while. I think it's a brilliant idea, just on the expensive side. Do a search for cake safe on the forum and lots of info will come up too.
Oh great. I did look and it looks like a great product. I was just worried that it might be cheesy or not up to what they advertise it to be. It does look a little spendy, but if it truly keeps cakes safe than it may be worth the cost. With the amount of wedding cake I make I may need to buy a couple.
Thank you for the information. I appreciate your time.
AWhy do you need a safer transport method?
When transporting a wedding cake or stacked cake I am concerned about wobbling or shifting of the cake to the point that the cake may become destroyed during the drive to the delivery. I drive slow and have an assistant sit in the back of the van to watch but with bumps in the road and turning some corners and just general vibrations I have had cakes start to crack and come apart. I try to stack cakes at the venue but if a cake has a design that is incorporated in all the tiers I sometimes can't avoid stacking before transporting. I just want to find a way to ensure that my hard, long hours of work don't come undone because I haven't taken every measure to transport in the safest way.
