I have an anniversary party coming up that I am making a cake for and would love advice on what works best in 90+ degree weather. I don't want to make anyone sick and and I don't want my frosting to melt off either. We will be in a covered area at a park, but it is Idaho and it will be HOT!

Also, I have to travel 7 hours with this cake in a bumpy pick up truck....I know another crazy complication....any advice for this would also be appreciated!

Thanks!

indydebi's recipe holds up very well in hot weather. It's in the recipe section on this site.

Where at in Idaho are you doing and where are you coming from? Washington/Montana? I currently live in Washington, but was born and raised in Montana. GO GRIZ!

It's crisco based so it will definately hold up better than reagular BC with butter!!!!!!!! If you are going to make an icing for 100+ degree weather, I would CERTAINLY use indydebi's!!!!!!!!!
