Hi Scarletfee, I hope you had fun making your cake and it was a success. I am in the same situation. I am making my first wedding cake for my son but have to transport it 350 miles 4 days before wedding. I am making fruit, madeira and chocolate mud cakes because they seem to stay fresh the longest. The will be covered in fondant a week before the event and stored in a cake box. I was thinking of dowelling before leaving home as it would be difficult to do at the last minute in a hotel room. Do you have any advice? I would be really interested in hearing how you got on. And well done for making your friends cake, it's not an easy feat.
Thanks in advance
