I would stack the two top tiers.. with the 3 remaining tiers, stack once you get to the venue...

However you transport them...just place non skid mat under each cake...they wont move or budge an inch whilst driving.

 

I have a couple of the large bread crates (that the bakers use). Put non skid matting on floor of boot....then place bread crate on top....then Place the heavy duty non skid matting in the bottom of bread crate......place cakes in...and off you go.

 

If your DH and father can carry all three layers in the bread crate...wonderful...otherwise just take one at a time into the venue.

 

 

K8...yes we have those containers over here..in every size... they are great for everything caking arent they?

Bread crate??  You happen to have a picture??

Thank you all so much for your help xoxox

 

I took in two pieces (three bottom tiers and two top tiers) then completed it there. I was very nervous but it went well and the main thing - bride and groom were happy :)

 

Don't know how you all do this for a living! I can't imagine the nerves getting better (esp for a couple you don't know)

 

here it is, my first wedding cake...

Here you go Gixxerchic - i just did a Google  - this is the first link that showed up under images.

Hope this helps.

I line mine with  a full sheet of polystyrene foam then place the thick non skid matting on top... you can transport anything anywhere - no matter the distance...

Thank you so much everyone you are so kind! I unfortunately don't know who to credit the design to as it was just given to me but it seems pretty common so I'm sure its ok.

 

Bluehue I wouldn't say perfect (if you looked up close in sections) and unfortunately the only tier they are keeping (top tier) wasnt the height I wanted being a fruit cake so I up'd it with a few boards (something to practice I guess)  :) But thank you I am still very happy with the result and you are all so lovely with your comments :)

There are a lot of different styles of cake boxes. You can find square-shaped boxes made of cardboard that are hinged with flaps you can tuck in to secure the box. Other boxes are designed in the same way as shoe boxes, where there is a bottom box which gets enclosed by a separate and detached top box.
