I will be much more careful when I stack it this time and I am gonna try to keep it cold all day even while decorating. Hopefully it will transport well tonight, since we are having a cold spell here in Georgia. The wedding starts at 4 tomorrow. When do you think I should take it out of the fridge (so it is not cold) when we eat it,...
I used the Wedding Crusting Creamcheese Icing recipe in the recipe section here. Basically 2 blocks creamcheese, 1 1/3 cup of shortening, 3.5 pound confectioners sugar, with some flavorings, 3 tbsp meringue powder. The cake had sat for awhile.

Need to bother ya'll with one more thing in this thread. How much should I charge for 50 decorated cookies? Mind you, she made them, I just decorated. TIA
lol! Would love to see the look on her face if I told her that. Very type A personality.
Thank ya'll so much for the help! It is greatly appreciated.
