I am doing a cake ball cake for a wedding this weekend. It is 3 tiers with cake balls covering each of the cakes. I have never made one and I am feeling indecisive about if I should assemble the cake and then drive it 45 minutes or assemble it there. I am reluctant to do both. My question is for those who have done a cake ball cake, Did they stay in the cake pretty well? I hate to try to do it on location but I am afraid they will fall out when I am driving. Any suggestions?

Lots of questions first.

Are you using short sticks in the cake balls?

Are you taking the finished cake base directly out of the fridge to put into a car with air conditioning?

Have you put hard dowels into the tiers?

All of these things will help your cake to arrive in good shape. I would say better to travel with the cake in sections, because then you know you will get it in the door safely. Anyway there is ALWAYS touching up to do--after the cake is put into place on its table.

I am not sure yet what to use for the sticks I have ready some people say they use toothpicks and others use sucker sticks. I am thinking that you are right that I should just assemble there.
