The transportation of baked goods can be perilous. On a good day, your cake enjoys a smooth ride from the bakery to its destination. It arrives unscathed, aand is devoured by your happy, hungry guests. Then there’s the day the bakery van tire hits that pothole the city still hasn’t fixed or the floors of your venue were just waxed aand no one was told about it. Woops! It is because of these unpredictable situations that our ADC delivery team is never without a cake emergency kit aand neither should you. To avoid having a cake disaster on your haands we recommend you bring a few things with you. Here are some of the items we always keep with us:
