Thanks in advance!
So how is it getting there? In someone's car? If so, just put it in a box the same size as the cake drum, tape it up and load into the SUV or van (hopefully.) As IndyDebi always says, if a cake will travel 5 miles, it will travel 50. Or 500.
Right, I've advised her to bring some plywood becasue she has an accord and I think they have bucket seats in the back. This way if the cake doesn't fit in the trunk the back seats will be level. I used to have an Altima and I had a hard time getting tall cakes in the trunk. However I also always but down that rubber drawer lining materaial so the box becomes non-skid.
