When choosing to TRANSPORT YOURSELF, be sure to have ample space for the cake on the floor or FLAT / LEVEL area of the vehicle, holding in LAP is NOT RECOMMENDED. The rear area of an SUV is idea for providing a flat and level surface. Cakes should always be handled by the BOTTOM of the box and not held by the sides, keep cake LEVEL at all times while under movement.  AC should be  COLD as possible and you should always take the cake directly to refrigeration or final display area while still cold.  If you are serving the cake later that night or the next day, the cake should be kept at 40 degrees until just before the event. Avoid HARD BRAKING and HARD ACCELERATION that could instantly damage a cake.

     Our smooth buttercream cakes are constantly refrigerated and transport best when still COLD, so make the cake PICK UP the LAST STOP before heading to the event or home. DO NOT STOP THE AC OR GO SHOPPING WHILE CAKE IS IN CAR.
