To refrigerate a cake overnight:
Wrap the box in a large trash bag and place in the refrigerator.  The next morning, remove the bag, leave the cake in the box and bring it to room temperature.  Prior to guests arriving, remove the cake from the box.  Uneaten cake should be refrigerated.
 
To freeze a cake for a couple of days:
Wrap the box in a large trash bag and place in the freezer.  The night before you're going to serve the cake, remove box from freezer.  Leave the box in the
bag, and thaw overnight in the refrigerator.  The next morning, remove the
bag, leave the cake in the box and bring it to room temperature.  Prior to guests
arriving, remove the cake from the box.  Uneaten cake should be refrigerated.

Traveling with the Cake - While I take great care to construct a beautiful cake, I can't be responsible for it after it is picked up.  Please be sure to let me know if you're driving more than 10-15 minutes, so I can suggest a cake that might travel better.

Here are some instructions to ensure a cake's safe arrival at your destination.
 
How To Transport A Cake

Here are a few tips:

            The container or Box must be placed on a flat surface
Use non slip mat under both boxes and containers for transport. 
In a standard car the safest place to transport a cake is in the boot.  
The passenger seat, or back seat are not safe places to transport your cake.
It is much safer for the cake to be in the boot on a non-slip mat, than held by a passenger. 
Drive carefully, no sudden moves and take it easy on the corners.
If the outside temperature is over 70 degrees, it would be best to have the AC on.
Do not leave the cake in the car for any amount of time. 
   The inside temperature will rise after only a couple of minutes.

In some cases, the icing will simply melt and slide off the cake.
**If this happens, the best thing to do is to take a piece of wax paper and press it against
the side of the cake to push the icing back into place.

Square and rectangular cakes are fairly straightforward to cut, while round ones are slightly more complex. Whatever the shape, servings usually measure 1" by 2" by the depth of the tier (for layer cakes).
Serving size for a sheet cake (or a single layer cake) is 2" by 2".  Before sinking the knife in the cake, slightly mark on it where you intend to cut it to ensure that you are slicing the right serving sizes.

Each 'tier' of a tiered cake sits on it's own board.  To serve, slide a spatula under the board and move the top tier
over to a separate plate. If there is a center support skewer added, you will need to lift the top tier up and then over
to a separate plate.  Remove all dowels.
 


Double-layer cakes...especially squares, can yield more servings than promised.

Save on delivery...get a tiered cake that you can stack yourself.
