Pampered Chef: Transporting Torte pan cakes?

    how do you transport your cakes made in the torte pans? I have a tupperware cake saver thing (really old) that I use at home, but it is barely bigger around than the torte pan cakes and always gets frosting on the inside sides of the lid since it is such a tight squeeze.

    I've made cakes at shows before, but haven't made them ahead to take along because I can't figure how to transport.

    ideas?

    thanks.

    Maybe you need to get the newer Cake savers? I've got a Tupperware Cake Saver- and I have no trouble with my torte cakes. i've done the mojito citrus torte- and it's double-stacked and frosted....and it had plenty of room.

    I don't know what might be available at Target or Walmart or wherever you'd get food storage items, but I'm sure you could find something there too.

    I wish PC would sell a lid for the Large Round Platter! I've submitted it as a suggestion.

    I have an older Tupperware cake keeper, too, and the torte pan cakes are about 1/2 inch too big for it. I measured a newer cake keeper at Target to see if it would fit. It was taller, but still not large enough in diameter for a torte cake :(


    edit - Bobbi, I wonder how yours fits? I called Tupperware and they measured their new one for me, and it was also too small.

    I'll double check- but I'm almost positive it was what I had the cake in...because I don't have anything else for round-cakes.

    I use my tuperware to carry and store cakes from the torte pans. Mine has a blue base with a frosted clear cover. If I recall correctly the cakes from the discontinued tarte pan are a bit too big for it.

    If I'm bringing the cakes ready made for a torte pan recipe to a show, I just leave the cakes in the pans for transportation. I'll flip them out to cool them and wash the pans, but I'll flip the cakes back into the pans. You can get the cardboard cake rounds at a craft store to put on top of the pans.

    I want to say that my Wilton cake carrier is big enough, but I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Thanks for the ideas. I was just thinking there MUST be some PC thing that I had completely overlooked for toting the cakes around. :) (any excuse to get more PC stuff, right?!)

    I'll check Target and/or Michaels, and I'll measure the containers.

    I have a large round Rubbermaid container that is big enough to hold torte pan cakes. I use the container piece (not the lid) and turn it over to use as a cover on the large round platter. That allows me to serve the cake from SA, but have a light-weight lid on it (I have used the glass dome from a cake plate, too, and it's too heavy when combined with the weight of the platter). When carrying baked cake layers to shows for assembly there, however, I usually put the cooled layers back in the pans and put the pans back in the box.
