I live in Florida and have a client that is traveling by train to New Jersey. They are wanting to take a fondant covered, two tier cake with them on the train. Does anyone have any advice on how I should send the cake with them? I'm nervous it's going to just get nasty on the way.
I would make sure the box that I put the cake in, is the same size, or maybe an inch larger than the cake drum that way it doesn't slide around in the box. I would also use the SPS system and use double sided carpet tape between the cake board and cake plate. Also tape the bottom tier to the drum. I do this for all the cakes that I travel with, and it doesn't budge!
The cake should be fine if there isn't a perishable filling it that needs refrigeration. What kind of cake is it?
Thanks, I'll definitely make sure the box is the right size. I always adhere so that shouldn't be a problem and it's only a vanilla cake with buttercream. Thank you for the advice. I feel better knowing I have it down pretty good.
AYou're welcome! As long as there is a strong support system, it will be fine, especially if it's only a 2 tier.
For my recent cake transit, I used candy melts to "glue" the tiers to the SPS plates. Just another idea.
