Welcome to Cake Central. Carefully transported cakes can be done in both icing or fondant and arrive in perfect condition.

using non skid fabric, strong cake boards and dowels when needed will help.

Before you get too far into the 'cake thing' be sure you know the state rules about selling home baked goods. Most states require some form of license, and some states do not allow it at all.

Welcome to Cake Central!

If a cake is fondant or buttercream, and it hit the back of a seat, more than likely either would have a boo boo icon_smile.gif But, both types of cakes certainly can be delivered without harm to the cake.
