Hi all, I am new here and I have gone through so many posts but cannot find the answer to a question regarding transporting individual tiers.
I understand that for e.g. an 8" cake goes on an 8" board before being filled and iced with buttercream and covered with ready-to-roll icing/fondant.
My question is this, once the icing/fondant has been applied, the total diameter is no longer 8" (it would be slightly larger due to the cake and the board being covered with the ready-to-roll icing), so how would such a tier be transported?
An 8" box would be too small as the sides of the iced cake would touch the box, but a larger cake box size would be too large.
Thank you for your time.
