Hi everyone, I need an answer quickly, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have to travel over back roads and am planning to assemble on site. The cake is the Martha Stewart Chrysanthemum cake.

My question is, can I fill my bags and put them into a cooler and pipe at the venue and have the icing make it without deflating or getting nasty before I use it? Do you think that it will be fine for a ride of about 45 minutes without me piping it onto the cake right away??? I don't want to have them all flop over and fall and look gross on the cake, I figure it should be ok but wanted some other input.

You can put the piping bags in a cooler and keep them cool for a number of hours - I've traveled 5 hours and it was fine - I use a cold-pack to keep it chilled - but be careful it can chill too much and be too firm to pipe with....

icon_biggrin.gif Thanks bakers2!!! I just wanted to hear it from someone else. If it is a little too stiff to pipe, that really wouldn't be a terrible thing, the petals look like spiky things. icon_smile.gif
