So I mostly make 8" round layer cakes (2 layers of about 1.75"). I often add some type of fondant figure on top (snowman in winter, teddy bear, etc.). I wrap 3 or 4 cardboard circles for the cake to sit on, since most of my cakes are sold at bake sales and stuff, so I know I won't get a cake drum returned to me.

My question: By the time I put it all together, the darn thing is too high to fit in a standard cardboard cake box! How do I package these for sale at places like bake sales without smooshing the top of the cake?

Thanks for any advice/guidance!

id prop open the lid by placing the flaps in the seams at the side and secure with tape, then use a clear cello sheet to cover the opening so people can still see what you have for sale.
