any suggestions on transporting a 3 tier cake.. i hear ur supposed to have all the tiers seperate in boxes and put it together once u get theere... but what keeps the iced tier from smudging against the box? if i take the time to smooth over and over on the tier i dont want it to touch the box and get messed up but i cant hold onto 3 tiers i dont think? im afraid if i put them in my trunk when i or my husband turns a corner they will shift and hit the side of the box!! HELP? how do yall do it!??!
I wouldn't bother stacking once you get there. For only 3 tiers you should be fine to transport it already stacked. Or at least stack the bottom two and just stack the last one on site. Just be sure you use a center dowel all the way through all 3 tiers. You could use SPS (I'm sure Leah_S will be in shortly to tell you all about it) but I personally don't care for it. Put your cake on a larger board than what it is sitting on so you can carry it easily. And put some sort of non-skid surface under it so it's not sliding around in the car. OH, and don't let your husband drive! Good luck!!
