I have a wedding cake to do for the middle of July. It can be 95 here or 65. It's really anyones guess. My SIL saved these for me to keep cakes in and keep them cool. Has anyone ever used these before ? I've watched and read info on keeping cakes cold. So my idea is to use these and put cake in cardboard box then place inside this cooler . Then chunk up dry ice and put around it . Anyone tried this? Can you keep the lid snug or does it need to be cracked ?
The bride wants buttercream with shortening and butter. What is this called anyway? American? It is a woodsy theme, Cakes will be sitting on individual logs so they can be completely finished and just need to keep cold as possible. I will attend the outside wedding then go to the shaded area and set up the cakes . She also wants pinecones along the tiers . I will be making choc ones and suppose just set them out on the tiers maybe 1/2 hr or so depending on the temp. Am I crazy or what ? Luckily I will have time to do a trial run on the pinecones anyway.
Any help will be aprreciated.
