Hey all. Have just been asked to do my first paid wedding cake. Am excited to be asked as a result of my other work and am confident I could do the design, however............... the bride wants to fly the cake from Sydney to Hamilton Island for the wedding. She wants a choc mud layer and a dummy with sea shell decorations, both covered in fondant.
There will be a lot of transport and handling involved. Obviously it's a given that I have her sign a contract, but is it worth the stress to worry if the cake will make it there in one piece. More than anything, I'm worried about the heat getting to it and fondant bulges etc.
Some advice from previous experiences like this would be so helpful. I dont want my first wedding cake experience to be a bad one! TIA
I would do it and once it leaves your hands it is her responsibility as far as any traveling with the cake goes.
You could always pack it with dry ice. Wrap the dry ice in paper and it should last until after it reaches destination
I am completely a newbie, but I agree, do it and once it's in her hands it's her responsibility. Just make sure she knows once it leaves, you are not responsible for any damage it may come across.
And use SPS
