I will be traveling with a 4 tier wedding cake next weekend (16,12,10,8 inches). It will be a 3 hour car ride. I am using SPS. Do you think its safe to travel that far with the cake already stacked? Any helpful tips appreciated!!!!

As Indydebi always says, "If a cake will travel 5 miles it will travel 50 miles." There's nothing about the number of miles traveled that will affect the cake. If it's secure, it's secure. Yes, SPS is the way to go.

I would always put the top tier on after I arrived at the venue.

I'd dispute this, especially if you're driving on a bumpy road!

Personally, I'd take the bottom two tiers stacked and assemble the top two on site regardless of how far you're travelling or what kind of support system you're using. It will take the worry out of it for you, and I've heard of people having cakes slide and fall even with the SPS. Things happen...

I personally wouldn't travel with a 4 tiered cake.I would stack the bottom two as well and add the top 2 when you get there.

I agree w/costum and kiddiekakes. There is way too much that you can run into on such a long trip. It only takes a few minutes to put a cake together and that's far, far bettere than having to re-make a whole 4 tier cake on site!
