8. Turn off the HEAT! If you really, really have to place the cake in the car; use the passenger footwell ensuing the cake is level and remember to turn off the heat to the floor. Trust me, you’ll have a melted cake by the time it arrives at the party. We’d advise against using the seat for the cake as it’s sloped and so will your cake be when it arrives … and don’t even think about the seatbelt to strap the cake down! Trust us, we are in the cake business – it’s best in the boot or on the front passenger footwell.
9. Lift it carefully – When you arrive at your venue, carefully lift the box up from underneath without squeezing the sides of the box and then carry to the table or stand area. Try and get under it from a corner not the side. Open the box up and slide the cake out. It will be on a cake board, so get your hand underneath the cake board (or use a cake slider if your venue has one) and lift carefully and set it on the display area.
10. Ready to eat – We like to allow around 3-4hrs for a cake to come to room temperature but you don’t always have to wait that long, it just depends how cold the cake was and the room temperature. Buttercream cakes should ideally be left in the fridge, or if you don’t have room in your fridge, a cool room overnight if collected the day before the event and remember to lift it out early enough to allow it to come up to room temperature.
