Hi,

I have a 4 tier square wedding cake to transport.
Its 6", 8", 10", 12".
Even if I use SPS and stack/decorate at home...won't the cake be too heavy to carry?
If I stack onsite, I guess I have to apply ribbon and such at the venue???
What does everyone else do for such heavy cakes when transporting/stacking?

Thanks in adavance

You can pre-stack whatever you can lift. The rest gets assembled onsite.

I carried this cake stacked into the hotel, on an elevator to the 7th floor. I did have it boxed -it was 6,8,10 and 12 inch layers on a 17 inch glass plate. I found the box at the post office-exactly 17inches. I just cut off the top as it wasn't tall enough.

Oh-forgot to mention that on arrival I found out the air wasn't working and it was 87 degress there-placed it in a small air conditioned room until the reception started but it did cause a small bulge on the bottom layer. AARGH-I worked so hard to make it perfect as it was for my niece. Even traveled over 250 miles by motorhome to deliver!
