I am doing a stacked cake for friends to take to a graduation party 3 hours away from here at the end of June. it is 12 and 8 inch round with a small grad hat cake on top. I plan on doweling the whole thing. My questions are:
Would it be sturdier if I do BC and then cover with fondant? or
Will it travel better if it's just covered in BC?
How should I 'package' it for them to travel with it?
I have never traveled with a stacked cake before.
Fondant (over buttercream) is best for travel. I would put the cake in one box that can be closed so that its completely sealed. Make sure there is some non-skid in the bottom if the cake board doesn't touch all the edges and non-skid under the box too.
