Does anyone have a trick on getting a 3D bear to its destination intact? It doen't fit in any cake boxes or cake savers. I'm using Wilton's new 3 level display unit so I can carry the 12' and 10' in cake savers but poor teddy might have a rough ride. Luckily I don't have to go too far but it's still a problem. Any suggestions?

is it going to be by itself or on top of another cake, if it's on another cake you can just dowel it and it should be fine

I would say to set him ontop of thick cardboard (or and beat a dowel through. Instead of cutting the dowel to the "right height," just leave it long and then when you get there, twist twist pull. Once you pull it out you can put it wherever you need it.

I have never done this, but it sounds good....icon_smile.gif

Good luck, Miah

Sometimes I put them in a box and tape the sides so the lid can't close all the way. You can also put 2 boxes together (1 inside the other) and have the 2 lids meet in the middle over the cake like a tent.

I dowelled my large bear into place ( 12x18 sheet) & made a foil tent over the cake box... got there in tact, BTW the weather was HHH! icon_surprised.gif and I packed the baby bears in a 10x10 box.

Real nerve WRACKING! i was very happy when that was OVER icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

I'm so glad you asked, 6 years ago I had to transport one to my niece's 1st birthday party. I rounded a corner and over the bear went. icon_surprised.gif I backed up and sat on the side of the road wondering how I was going to get to the party and a wonderful police officer stopped to render aid. I was so embarassed, I couldn't tell him the truth so I made up a ridiculous story about my car. He even stopped traffic so I could get back on the road. I drove the rest of the way holding the bear in my right hand with my finger up the rear!! icon_eek.gif

i usually put my 3Ds on a round cake and when i transport it i have someone else drive so i can hold it. i dont get someone else to drive incase somthing happens i only have myself to blame. i hold it so that with any sharp turns i can kind of tilt it which ever way i need to. it might not be a good idea for a long drive cuz they can get heavy real fast.
