When you need to transport a cake or other goodies to a party or event, it is easiest to use a cake carrier with handles. These carriers come in a variety of different styles to hold baked goods securely while they are in motion. If you were to place a cake in a box or on a cookie sheet, it might slide around and mess up the frosting, but a carrier is designed to hold a cake in place and prevent the decorative frosting from being damaged.
Not only does a baked goods carrier protect the cake, it also seals out air so that the cake stays fresh longer. This is very important if you are making the cake ahead of time. You wouldn’t want to show up at a party with a dry cake or one that didn’t taste fresh.
A round cake carrier from Martha Stewart is a great option for birthday cakes, bundt cakes, and any other time you want to make a cake in a round shape. It is tall enough for up to three layers, and there is a convenient carrying handle on the top. These carriers are made from plastic, but they seal tight.
There is also bakeware for transporting goodies from Nordicware. A rectangular carrier is perfect for sheet cakes or cupcakes. It works a lot like a carrier from Martha Stewart.
Some of these carriers have a non-slip texture on the bottom so the cake will not move around when it is inside the carrier. All you have to do is put down a small amount of frosting to attach the cake, Don’t worry, you won’t see this frosting and it doesn’t affect the way the cake will taste.
