I have a wedding cake tommorow & I'm actually invited as well. I usually construct my cakes on site. My question is could I travel with this cake finished? It's 4 tiers 6 round, 8 square, 12 round, & 14 square. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks

I have travelled with a constructed cake about this size, and had no problems. I put more dowels in than I would normally, and then one through all the layers for more support. It arrived unscathed and in just as good of a condition as it left my place.

What's your support system? If you're using SPS you can travel with whatever you can lift.

Curious.. Do you hold it on the way? My hubby will be driving.

I usually do 4-5 dowl rods in each cake on a plywood decorated board.

The only time I travel with a cake stacked is if it is in my CAKE SAFE. Otherwise I travel with them seperatly.

I have only made 2 wedding cakes and traveled over some pretty bumpy, hilly roads to get to the location. Both cakes were 4 tier. I use the sfss, with a dowel down the center through all tiers. Both cakes traveled with no problems.

Hold a cake? ABSOLUTELY not. That's asking for trouble. Non-skid is the answer.
