I have a bridal cake and a grooms cake that need to trave 8 hours to their destination. The decorations are fairly simple but they are buttercream. I will not be doing the transporting so I want to make this as hassle free as possible but I'm unsure how to do this or if you even can. Has anyone done this? All help is appreciated. Oh, they are sheet cakes so no bigger than 12 x 18.

Thanks tons! icon_surprised.gif

Yes, you can freeze an already decorated BC cake. Put the cakes in the cake boxes and wrap in plastic wrap and then in foil. Make sure they know to unwrap and de-box before unthawing.

I am not understanding your need to freeze? Is it because cold cakes travel better? If so, by the time it travels 8 hrs. it should be pretty much thawed.
