This is my first time making a 3 tier fondant cake. I just realized that cake boxes for tall cakes are not readily available. And I don’t want to buy an expensive cake box.
I am taking the cake to a party next Saturday evening. Should I just make it in the morning and take it to the party somehow? I wanted to finish it a day before but if I do how will I store it? Can I put it in an airtight container(I have read fondant cakes cant be stored in plastic boxes)? I do have big enough cardboard boxes(I have my vitamix box lying around!) but I am afraid if I put the cake in that kinda box, it will smell of cardboard. Should I put it in a paper bag and saran wrap the open end? I have also read that people use Walmart’s shipping boxes. But again, wont the cake smell of cardboard in that kinda box? Help!! What do I do?
