I am bringing this cake to a show 3 hours away and my husband is convinced I should disassemble the whole thing and then remake it at the show. It is a dummy with RI and fondant, some of the figures I have removed and wrapped up but I really don't want to take the whole thing apart as it will ruin the walls and may ruin many of the figures. I have to drive a small sedan there and the cake will go in the trunk. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

It won't let me attach the pic but it is the toy box pic in my pictures.

If I looked at the right cake...I don't see why you would pull it apart to transport it. Are the animals attached to the top solidly? How about the animals and blocks that are on the board? Are they glued down? If so, I would transport it just like it is.

I don't see any reason to take it apart. I have transported similar cakes -- wedding cakes 3 & 4 tiers high stacked -- w/o problems. You just have to drive like an old woman -- very carefullyicon_smile.gif

Shoot no you don't have to take it apart. I transport dummy cakes to shows all the time. Six or eight cakesat a tiime in the back of my SUV.

Thanks so much for the replies, I was not looking forward to taking it apart. I will just pack up the figures that are loose and drive like my grandmother!!!
