A friend of mine has ordered a 3D beer bottle cake for her sister's gradution from RN school. I was planning on screwing a dowel rod to a wooden base, and then stacking the cakes with cake boards between them on the dowel for the body of the cake, and make the neck out of rice crispy treats. Here's my issue. She has to pick up the cake from me next Thursday morning and drive 4 hours west with it. If the base is big enough for the cake to not tip over, do you you think the rest of the cake will hold up the way I'm planning on assembling it? I have never had a cake travel this far before. Oh, and she wants BC, not fondant. Thanks in advance!
Sounds ok to me as long as she drives carefully.
I think your plan is much better than one I would have come up with.
I agree with _jamie_ there shouldn't be any problems.
