How long will it take to assemble the cake? Do you have to stack it when you arrive or will it already be stacked when you deliver it? Also is the reception indoors or outdoors? That will help us give you a better time frame. thumbs_up.gif

What are the time restrictions at the reception place? When will the folks be done decorating at the the reception?

The reception will be inside with a/c.. they are gonna have it all day fri and sat.. the bride wants me to be there @5 pm the wedding is at 4pm.. I just dont know if that will give me enough time to do everything... As for taking it stacked do you think that it will be fine with teh dowel support if i strack it and then take it to the reception site??? this is my 1st wedding cake so i need all the help i can get!!!

unless they are having a really long ceremony or a Mass, that doesn't sound like a lot of time for you. Is there a reason you couldn't go sooner? Not that the bride is going to know...she's kinda busy at the wedding. As far as the dowels, you will have to wait for other ccers. My specialty is sheet cakes and non-wedding cakes. Good luck!
