With ICES and Cake Camp just around the corner, I'm wondering what's the best way to transport display cakes. My first ICES was last year and I was floored by some of the extravagant detail and string work on cakes. How the heck do you get those on a plane and to travel without damaging them? I'd like to take a display cake with me to Vegas next week and I'm strategizing the size and design based on carry-on vs. checked. Thank you!
You can fly with a cake. Just check the size of the airline overhead bin.
I do it all of the time on Southwest and I find that a box 10" high fits fine. Width can be up to 14"; length up to 24".
If you go larger, it needs to go as checked luggage--good luck.
I once bought a seat for a cake (on a $39 flight).
Good stuff. Thanks! I'll keep it to a 2-tier to fit in that 10" box.
