Looking at all these box links, all I see are standard size boxes. How do you guys box up your wedding cakes, carved cakes, or other crazy shaped, large, or akward cakes? I have customers ask me for boxes a lot, and I havent been able to provide boxes because I usually cant find any that fit.

Well..I buy 2 standard sizes as these are most of what size I send out..I buy 19x14 flat window boxes and large 18x25 boxes.When I volunteer at my kids school on Chip Day every month I take the empty boxes from all the chips and that is what my tiered cakes go out in...

I buy moving boxes from Home Depot for tiered cakes. Just put a piece of nonskid drawer liner in the bottom of the box and you're good to go!

Honestly I often take bakery boxes and "frankenstein" my own to fit the 3D cakes. Wedding cakes get boxed in seperate boxes and assembled on site. They travel better that way.

Large cakes don't get boxed from me and no one has ever complained
