A fellow CCr gave me a great idea for storing a large sheet cake the other day... Put it in one of those Sterilite containers, like the kind that are made for storing under the bed. That would certainly be sturdy enough, and waterproof...

Coming from the UK where it always seems to raining I have had to carry a few cakes with someone usually DH holding a large golfing umbrella over me and the cake. He ususally gets wet but the cakes have managed to stay dry.
Is it buttercream? if not you could try tenting a large strip over silver foil over it so it doesn't touch the cake.
Other than that I don't know what to suggest.
I'm sure there is a solution out there. Best wishes in finding one.

The Sterilite container works great!! I use them to transport a lot of my sheet cakes to customers. They are so study (especially compared to cardboard boxes). The only problem might be getting it back from the customer. I have never had a customer pick one up in one of these might call her and suggest that she bring one with her.
