My mouth is watering now... I'm going to do a small cake for my Grandma's 93rd birthday this weekend...she's a chocoholic like me, so I'm going to make her a rich choc cake with whipped choc ganache filling, covered in choc ganache. I might even put chocolate fondant on the outside!! :::pardon me while I clean the drool from my keyboard::: LOL!
Will definitely have all supplies for emergencies in the car with us. I think the foam/bubble wrap is going to be crucial. Thank you for your encouragement and comments. I'll be sure to post how wonderful it went! (staying positive and optimistic! )
Two weekends from now I'll be traveling 5 hours (one way) with a wedding cake. Each tier unstacked of course. They'll be in separate boxes, all snug in the back with some foam and/or bubble wrap under each box to cushion. I plan on baking/torting/frosting/decorating in ample time for each tier to "set". And other suggestions from those who have traveled long distances with a wedding cake?Thanks in advance!!
