I have a 3 tier cake due on Saturday. Halloween/Birthday cake and am very concered about the delivery. My husband will be driving so I can watch and hold the cake, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I know to used dowels on the bottom 2 tiers and discs under each cake, then one dowel going all the way through. Any others suggestions would be very helpful. Thank u in advance. Just keep thinking good thoughts!!!
I have my first three tier cake on Saturday as well - it's also my first wedding cake - yikes.
I'm actually driving the cake unstacked and then stacking at venue. I plan on making sure the cakes stay cool and bringing along an emergency kit with extra frosting / supports / anything else I can think of, just in case something happens.
DO NOT HOLD THE CAKE WHILE TRAVELING. Put the cake on a flat surface with a non skid mat under it. The trunk is way better than carrying it. I have a Suzuki Aerio (very tiny car) and deliver all my wedding cakes stacked. They travel in my trunk just fine. If you hold it, it will very like collapse.
i put my stacked cakes in the trunk inside a wide box (lined with non-skid shelf liner) ... then i stuff the trunk around the box so the whole thing can't slide around. hubby never drives when there's a cake on board if something goes wrong, i'd much rather blame myself than him.
Thank so much for your suggestions, I'll let u know how it turns out!
