On large cakes like this you can use a clean UHaul box and wrap in foil. That should be large enough. I would use a large piece of plywood wrapped in foil to make sure it supports the weight of the cake though.

I had this same type of request & did this cake:

My hubby went to Lowe's and got plywood and cut it to the size I wanted. Since it was wood, I covered it in contact paper first and then fanci foil. It worked like a charm!! To transport, I bought one of those "under the bed" plastic storage containers from walmart and it fit in there perfect.

The only difference is for 100 people I used two 14" square pans. My hubby made my board to be 18" x 32". I made mine going off of wilton charts that say one 14" square pan feeds 63 people. So since you are wanting to feed more people, I don't know if my info will help all that much but thought I would post in case it might!!
