My hubby will be celebrating his birthday in Iraq. I plan to ship a cake to him, nothing fancy....just a one-layer cake, vacuum sealed, with a jar of frosting on the side.
Now, I had a quick thought....Would it be possible for me to cover the cake in fondant and THEN vacuum-seal it?? Would that work? Is it even logical????
What do you think?
that is so sweet of you! but, I don't think the fondant would be a good idea. Temperatures in Iraq can get up to 135 Fahrenheit and that is with a lot of humidty. The fondant may not be too appetizing after that.
also, from recent experience flying with some frosting in my luggage with the altitude change it will cause the frosting to expand. I'm not sure if the altitude change will effect the baked cake as well?? i feel bad thinking of all these problems when this is such a sweet thing to do
haha! Thanks! Don't feel bad, that's good info.
Yea, I didn't think the fondant idea would go over too well....the idea just *popped* into my head. I plan on sending a can of store bought frosting.
If I don't try, I won't know! So, We'll see what happens???.....
