I need to travel 6 hours with a cake that needs to be refrigerated.. it will be on a board app 12" X 16"... do they make coolers that big? Any ideas?

not sure, but what about getting a heavy duty shipping box and some dry ice?

If you can't get dry ice you could always just get some of those blocks of ice (they usually sell them at tackle shops for boaters (it's like a bag of ice but it's one huge block) couple of those under the cake in the box should do the trick. Just be sure you put it in some type of plastic container so you don't have water all over your trunk.

I don't feel comfortable having the dry ice in the car (SUV), but the regular ice might just do the job. I will look up some ice houses here and see what they have available... Thanks~! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Line a big box with styrofoam and put ice packs inside of it and put a lid on it (also lined with styrofoam).

Great idea Glenda~! Thanks icon_biggrin.gif I have some sheets of styrofoam that would work perfectly too...
