AI often make cakes for office parties - to celebrate colleagues' new babies, engagements, etc. - and way too many times I've had to improvise an inadequate cardboard box to transport a 3D cake (the 3D bear, the wondermold doll, the stand-up snowman, the duck, etc. etc.) I have pie-carriers and cupcake-carriers and the tallest cake carrier that Rubbermaid makes, but nothing that will fit a 3D cake.

I'm finally getting married myself, and registering for stuff, so I figured I'd register for the cake carrier of my dreams. What do you use, and where can I find it?

ALol, that's a good question! I would look into your wedding guest list (congratulations btw) and see who's got the best craft skill and ask them to make you a custom made one. Maybe two...

I can buy cardboard/disposable cake boxes here in Australia that are 13" tall (14"x14"wide or 18"x18") and also 'extenders' which allow for even taller cakes.  Can you google to find suppliers in your country?


I've also used those huge plastic storage tubs you buy at hardware/specialist storage stores /$2 shops

Yes, of course.  Here are a couple of suppliers in Australia....


The more rigid/strong the more expensive.  I have the packaging place ones, they are awesome.  I either add the extra $15-$20 cost into the cake price, or I ask for it to be returned (if a friend)
