In October I'm making 70 mini two tier cakes and transporting them to Vail. They'll be 5" and 3" iced in buttercream. How do I A)keep from losing my mind and B)keep them from shifting during the drive and mucking the icing as I have to take them all assembled.

I would put each one on its own little board, then put a layer of nonskid drawer liner in a box and set them on that. Put a piece of drawer liner down in the car before you put the box (or boxes, it will probably take a couple icon_biggrin.gif) in the car, so the box itself doesn't shift during the drive.

How to keep from losing your mind, well, I think we're WAY passed that. I think you lost your mind when you agreed to the order. Ha ha! But, hey, go bog or go home! You are already my hero. thumbs_up.gif As for keeping them from shifting around, I think Texas_Rose has nailed it with the non-slip drawer liner. Good luck! Be sure to post pictures of all of those little cakes when you get them finished. It will be AWESOME!

Maybe start baking them a week or so in advance and freeze them. then all you will have to do the week they are due is decorate and stack. at least then 1 big job will be done and help to keep you sane!

Preplanning is the way to go..........making a list would the first.....amount of ingredients.....number of boards needed......plan on when u will make the cakes and when u can ice them....... how many days u will need and how to store or allocate a space for them while u r working on them........once u have it all planned and ready...... u will be ok...... best of luck
