Hi all. I am making my first stacked cake and I'm wondering how to deliver this? It will be a 6" stacked on a 9". I've done some searching on-line but I'm having trouble finding a box deep enough. I'd appreciate any suggestions. By the way, I have to say..... I LOVE this site and I'm blown away by how helpful everyone is!

I have seen people use packing type boxes for that purpose-I have never seen a cake box that tall. Make sure that you cake has a really good internal support system, and that you put a dowel from the top cake all the way down to the bottom cake to stabilize it so it doesn't slide off during the drive. Good luck!

I ordered wholesale brown cardboard boxes - 12inch by 12inch by 9inch. these work for me great but if i have a figure on top I have to cut the top of the box open. a lot of bakeries dont give boxes and just deliver straight out of the boot of the car but i like to have some protection for it and its easier for the customer to deal with too.

i spent so long trying to find boxes too - lol

good luck!

Sometimes, I just go to Walmart or UPS and buy boxes. I leave the top open. If it's raining, I get a new trashbag and cut it open and tape it to the top of the box. Hope this helps!

I havent checked it out yet...but a woman on here said she uses U HAUL boxes...there thick, sturdy and a nice size...they cost like 1.25-178 I think she said. She also stated she puts that kitchen drawer paper..from the dollar store, to prevent movement.
hope this helps.
