Quick Delivery Tip

Some weeks, I have to make several trips to get my cakes delivered.  Sometimes the timing of the deliveries just works out that way.  Some weeks all my cakes are due within a hour or so of each other and basically in the same part of town.  This can pose a problem of how to fit all those cakes in whatever vehicle you use to deliver your cakes.  A couple of weeks ago I had 5 cakes to deliver, and these were some big cakes.  My problem was figuring out the best use of my trunk space.  That's when it hit me!!  I went and got cake boards to match all my cakes and used these to figure out cake placement in our SUV.  I even realized that by rearranging the cakes (first cakes to be delivered go in last) I could be even more efficient.  I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of this, but it sure won't be the last time I use it.  From now on, anytime I have 4 or 5 cakes cakes to deliver I will be using this little trick to make things easier.

I hope you can make use of this too!  Have an awesome week!!


  1. 5 cakes to deliver for me would be very stressful! I also love that large sheet of non-slip.

  2. Great post, Jenniffer! Thanks so much for sharing! (Although I hope I never have to deliver that many at once as my nerves would NEVER recover!) ;)

  3. How do you handle the situation if you have to travel 50 KM and weather is hot and you don't have AC in your delivery vehicle. ...?

    1. Hi Anusha! If my vehicle wasn't adequate for delivering in current conditions then I would either seek to borrow or a rent a car for the day.

    1. 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. It's pretty large and has vents in the back so we thought it would be a good delivery car. Our CRV has a bit more height though.
