AI'm curious about how everyone boxes their tiered cakes for people to pick up. I have seen a few videos on how to make a shipping box into a cake box but hate the look of the ugly brown box and I would lie for people to be able to see the cake also (like the small white boxes that have clear tops). My one have any input? Also I saw that dry ice was put inside of the shipping boxes to keep the cakes cold. Does anyone else do this? I'm not so sure about putting dry ice in boxes that people are picking up because then they have to handle the ice themselves. Is that safe? Thanks for any input!

I use extenders like these


or you could try to find these


You can buy tall cake boxes for stacked cakes, but they tend to be expensive, especially the ones with the clear tops (as far as I've researched anyway!).


I think the dry ice is used by cake decorators if they can take out the ice themselves (with protective gloves/tongs) at point of delivery. If cakes are being picked up, I personally wouldn't put dry ice in it, just have the cakes really cold to begin with.

Or you could make your own corner extenders with heavy white cardboard or foam core.
