I'm doing my first wedding cake in a couple weeks and I am a little nervous about the transport portion. Can anyone give me any tips or just help me put my mind at ease?
It will be a 4 tier cake (12-10-8-6), supported by SPS. It will be on a 14-in cake drum. I will have to drive the cake only about 10-15 minutes on a pretty easy road, just a few curves here and there! I (or my husband) will be driving a RAV4 and one of us will be in the back just to watch it.
Am I being completely irrational in fearing it's demise? haha
This is my first time transporting a cake that's taller than 2 tiers!
If you're using SPS, you're good to go.
Can someone add a link for SPS. I couldn't find them on Global Sugar Art site
Here's a similar thread which might be helpful:
The key is to drive carefully and to use a reliable support system (which you already have). I've travelled 4 tier cakes on a pedestal stand, only using bubble tea straws--so driving carefully is a must.
SPS is good stuff, just drive slow & be a defensive driver. Also, 4 tiers of cake can be HEAVY so make extra sure that your base is thick & sturdy. You say you'll have your hubby so I'm sure he can carry it for you otherwise I would transport it seperated if design allows. But I'm a weakling
