Setting up a cake stall
Carry large cakes in cake tins. Put the cake on the lid and cover with the rest of the tin, rather than the usual way round - this will make it easier to lift out. Slice cakes at the stand, so they don't dry out. Take cling film and greaseproof paper with you to wrap slices, plus a couple of knives. Tape a list of ingredients to each cake tin.
If you use cherries whole, they will end up at the bottom of your cake. If you want them scattered through the sponge, try quartering or chopping them.
