A few more questions, please. I've done many cakes-- just haven't done any in awhile. The cardboard under the 8" cake-- it's not coated, is it ok that I've covered it with freezer paper and would you feel safe transporting this size cake assembled?
I'm baking a hummingbird cake with cream cheese icing. It's 2 tier, an 8 and a 12. I'm taking it tomorrow about 60 miles away. Do I need to make a cake dam if I'm just using icing between the layers? Would you refrigerate it so it's firmer for the trip?
Indydebi-- I like your answer. And I agree with letting the other woman take the limelight this time. Sometimes I think we want our creations to be the center of attention, but I wouldn't want it to look like I was trying to intentionally outdo the other woman. Be kind.
First, let me say that I took a look at your cakes and you do wonderful work! Second, let me say how hard it is to do cakes with little ones underfoot! Third, hopefully.......your husband will grow wiser and kinder as he grows older. Mine did!
