Back seat of the car for me too.  I do the rolled towel thing, wooden base on top of that and non slip mats and have lovely big boxes designed for carrying tiered cakes all stacked and ready to go.  And I sit in the back with the cake while my partner drives.

 

I love the shelf idea though - might get him working on that!!

You know, every now and then I read of these resourceful husbands coming up with the most wonderful cake ideas. How nice! Well some of us are just going to have to roll up a towel and stuff the back seat cos the shelf ain't happening. LOL.

If you will come pick it up or pay shipping, I'll get mine to make ya one.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I have delivered in 3 vehicles, my car (a very old Infiniti with a large trunk), my sister's Subaru Forester and my husbands Honda Fit hatchback. 

 

Suspension makes all the difference. 

 

I will never deliver in my husbands Honda again.  Rough ride and did have slight damage to both cakes delivered that day. 

 

My car rides like a dream, but I hate having to pick up a lot of weight in the position I need to get the cake in and out of the trunk.  I prefer to stack as much cake at home as I can carry. 

The Subaru icon_biggrin.gif is really the best.  The suspension provides a smooth ride and it is comfortable to get the cakes in and out.  I am hoping my sister will want to trade it soon so I can buy it.  I have been looking for one for months now and boy are they expensive.  I'm hoping she'll remember all those family discounts I've given her on cakes over the years.
 

The only time I carried a cake on the inside of the car did not turn out so good.  I haven't tried it again.

Okay so this is tied in to this...my dad's birthday is coming up and I'm making mini cakes (think Wilton Celebrate It! miniature pans) and I have to deliver it in my PT Cruiser as my dad is disabled and can't get out, and Mama is at work and sister is out of town. So I have to make my first cake delivery...the PT rides good on the interstates but give me an unpaved road and it's like flipping a coin-cargo might be okay and might not. Suggestions? Thanks!

 

FYI I just read the statement about the rolled towel thing-could you please explain that? Thanks again!

I have a volvo wagon and it drives like a tank. It's nice and heavy, solid on the road and has a big old flat section in the back. I would never put anything on a slanted back seat...I like everything to be level. I need to start loking for a new car, though, since volvo isn't making the model car that I have anymore icon_sad.gif When it dies I'll need to get something else.

I have a Nissan Altima. My husband built a "shelf". He also built shelves for his car now that we have the baby. It's flat board covered with non skid. It has tiny feet that go on the seat & foldable legs that reach the floorboard. It's perfect!

 

 


Great idea! We recently traded our mini van in for a Hyundai Sonata. I've used the trunk with no problem, but was a little concerned about hotter weather coming.

This is the small shelf for the passenger seat.

I deliver little tiered cakes sometimes, and I'll take a square cake dummy with a rolled up towel underneath that to make a shelf. Usually I use the flat compartment in my Honda Element though. Best cake delivery vehicle around, as far as compact-ish vehicles go.
