Cake Storage Tins (12" or larger)

I have made one of Delia's lovely fruit cake (11") for a friends wedding & will be adding a drop or two of brandy before its iced. Delia says to store it in a tin, can anyone suggest where I can buy a tin large enough.
I do have a plastic tub big enough but am worried that it might "taint"
the flavour of the cake.

Cake storage

You will be able to buy flat-pack cardboard 'tins' at any cake-decorating shop.

You can also store the cake in the tin it was baked in. Turn it upside down if you want to feed it and make sure it is wrapped depending on what the tin is made of.

Air Tight Tin Required

Thank you for the reply from Welsh Cookie.
I should have said that Delia says to store in an "air tight tin", so I am still in need of more advice / suggestions.

Cake storage

Air-tight is absolutely not necessary and can cause mould.

Just have it so the cake is not exposed to the open-air. Wrap in greaseproof and put in a container.

Cake storage

I've always stored my fruit cakes (and Christmas Cakes) in a Lock and Lock cake carrier. But first I wrap it in grease-proof paper (face down) and then foil (once it's thoroughly cooled down) and then where you store it isn't important. When I was taught how to make a Christmas Cake (well in advance of Christmas) we just used grease-proof paper and it was stored in a cool pantry for weeks. I say to wrap it so that it's face down so that you can easily undo the paper so that you can feed it regularly until you marzipan and ice the cake.

Plastic should be fine

When I made my friend's wedding cake, I stored all three tiers (the bottom one was 12") in plastic containers for several weeks before I iced them and they were fine.
