and then last 4 days. My sister wants me to make her bday cake, party is on the 9th. I live in San Antonio and she's 8 hours away in El Paso. My in-laws can take the cake on their way back to El Paso, but they leave the 5th. First of all, will the cake last that long? Can I freeze it with fondant already on it if I pack the decorations seperately? Can she refreeze it when she gets it? and what's the best way to pack it to keep it from melting?
We've delivered to El Paso before, but when it's this hot the fondant droops

I live in Grand Prairie TX. Last year I baked a cake for my aunt in East Texas
(About 2 1/2 hours away.)

It was a 10-inch round with buttercream. It was June and the temp was around 95. I froze the cake before traveling. When I arrived the cake had melted and had slid to the side. The buttercream had condensation and was beyond repair. I packed extra frosting and some of my tools and was able to re-frost and decorate the cake.

Im not sure how fondant would do, but just thought Id share my little food for thought.

Good Luck !!
