What is the safest way to deliver a wedding cake? Assembled or apart? I have to drive about 50 mile and 40 of it will be interstate. It is a 3 tiered cake and there will be 3 of us delivering it!

For something that small, you can deliver assembled if you can lift it. Or deliver with the bottom two stacked and place the top at the venue. Of course I'm talking about a cake stacked using SPS! icon_smile.gif

I agree that a small 3 tier cake can be delivered already stacked - IF the bottom tier is large enough. If it is like 10, 8, 6 it will NOT be stable - the lgst tier is not enough to spread the upper weight - in other words it will be top heavy. But if it is say 12, 9. 6 on a 14 (or even better) 16" base board there should not be a problem. I have delivered 100s that size icon_smile.gif Good luck.

It will definately NOT be top heavy! And I use the SPS so i will be good, just hadn't heard it be referred to as SPS! Thanks ladies!
