Imagine a situation where your wedding cake arrives at the wedding in pieces due to poor delivery- quite the nightmare, right? So, how then do you ensure that your wedding cake is delivered, safely? If you are dealing with a cake vendor that offers transport, then you may not have reasons to worry.
But what if the vendor doesn’t deliver cakes? It means you have to figure out the best way to transport your wedding cake without damaging it. Cake City– one of Kenya’s leading cake houses- has offered a few practical tips on how to deliver your wedding cake safely.
Proper Base Support
Whether you are transporting your wedding cake in a box, pouch, or any other container for that matter, it has to be well supported by a strong base. A simple way to do this is to put at least three layers of cardboard beneath and around the cake. These layers will absorb any impact that may occur during transportation.
Carry Tiers and Pillars Separately
Most wedding cakes nowadays come in several tiers that are supported by pillars and stands. It’s risky to assemble these tiers before transportation because the pillars may not be strong enough to withstand the twists and turns of our rugged roads. The best thing is to carry the cake tiers and pillars separately and assemble them at the wedding reception.
Use Foam Mats
Never place your wedding cake boxes on your car seats as they might shift ground and damage the cakes inside. A safer way to deliver the cakes is to place them on a foam mat in the boot or the back seat of your vehicle. This mat helps to absorb pressure and impact that may arise from bumps or potholes.
Ask for Help
If you fear that you might damage your wedding cake during delivery, you should ask for help from a professional cake transporter. You may contact Cake City for referrals if you do not have any contacts. These transporters have the experience and resources necessary to deliver your wedding cake safely.
