I just want to thank mamawrobin, Marianna46, and rkei for answering my post. As always, I got great advice from experienced cakers on travelling with my cakes.(especially because it was really hot). I really braved up when I decided to cover them all in fondant. It was all family members at the 4th of July celebration at my daughters house, so I figured I'd give it a shot and try fondant. I love Cake Central and all of the members here who have been so kind in offering their expertise since I joined and started making cakes a few months ago. Thanks again! I've attached a picture of the cake.

Hi letsgetcaking
Yes, they did travel well I guess. I followed what was advised, and stacked the cakes at my daughters house. As you can see, the bottom cake has some bulges in the fondant, but with more practice, hopefully I'll get better! Originally, I was going to just use indydebi's buttercream (which I love), but I couldn't get the cakes as smoothe as I wanted to, and I had some fondant on hand so I said why not try? So this was the outcome. Thanks for the compliment.
