I am making a pizza cake for my son's birthday next saturday. Due to my other son's sport schedule I can't control the environment the cake will be in for several hours before serving. I am hoping I can stash it at my sister's during the game but it's probably not going to have a covering on a big part of the cake with either fondant or frosting. I am not sure my cake carrier will hold it either. I am worried it could dry out. If it was anyone else I just do fondant, but birthday boy hates fondant. Any tips, the flavors probably be pretty simple vanilla with the "sauce" of either red ABC or strawberry jam.

Get a large shallow (5"-6") plastic storage box, turn it upside down and place the cake on the lid.  I got one on sale at Target for $5 and it fits a 11"x15" cake plus clearance for the board.

put it in a pizza box relaxed.png

plus you can glaze any exposed areas -- i bet if you added some brown or ivory food color it would enhance the look of the crust as well as protect -- just confectioner's sugar and milk glaze
