It will be fine, as long as you have supports in the cake if it is high, and it is well secured to the cake board. Make sure you give the person taking the cake some non-slip shelving material to put under the cake in the boot of the car, and ensure they have their AC on the whole trip. Fuel/food/pee stops should be brief and parked in the shade when the engine has to be turned off.

I drove a 2 tier cake 6 hours in summer in Spain, and the cake arrived better than I did, with all the worrying and all!

My first thought was - OH Gheesss - but as Dayti said, it will be just fine if you use the correct support. Support is the key, so just take a little extra time putting it together. thumbs_up.gif

well my first thought was (you may not like it either)...........

The cake leaves my hands & it's someone else's responsibility, BUT if it's your family going to the party & delivering the cake, well I'd be worried too. That said, I agree with Dayti. With care on the driver's part, the cake should be fine.
