OK seasoned cake decorators, I need some help! I am decorating and transporting my first wedding cake next weekend. I have to travel from Northern Kentucky to Indianapolis (about 2 1/2 hours) with a 8 inch four layer cake and 100 cupcakes. The cake will be decorated and ready to go, but the cupcakes I am going to decorate there. So any ideas on how to transport these I would sooo appreciate it! I'm kind of nervous about it and need some reassurance!!! Thanks so much!
I'd put the cupcakes in covered boxes and the cake as well. Just make sure that your cake has the proper supports. Since you're not transporting a tiered cake this should be easy peasy. Since the cupcakes aren't going to be decorated they should be fine laying on a flat surface in the trunk. The decorated cake I would sit on the floorboard and run the AC. Good luck .
Thank you Mamawrobin for the tips. I appreciate the advice and was thinking about packing the cupcakes really good in boxes so that was reassuring!
