Two weekends from now I'll be traveling 5 hours (one way) with a wedding cake. Each tier unstacked of course. They'll be in separate boxes, all snug in the back with some foam and/or bubble wrap under each box to cushion. I plan on baking/torting/frosting/decorating in ample time for each tier to "set".
And other suggestions from those who have traveled long distances with a wedding cake?
Thanks in advance!!
Bring supplies for emergency fix ups, just in case!
Sounds like you've got a good plan. Be sure to bring extra icing, flower decorations, etc just in case you have a smudge or smear. And don't forget your dowel rods for securing once you get the cakes stacked.
Will definitely have all supplies for emergencies in the car with us. I think the foam/bubble wrap is going to be crucial.
Thank you for your encouragement and comments. I'll be sure to post how wonderful it went! (staying positive and optimistic! )
No-skid mats under each layer can be a cake-saver if you have to brake suddenly or turn un-expectedly. I use the no-skid shelf liner you can buy in rolls; in-expensive, and easily cut to size.
Thank you! I have an entire roll in a closet, waiting to be used just for this!
