i have a woman who wants a fondant or b/c wedding cake ( she's not sure which yet) for August 2nd of next year. her wedding is 4 1/2 hrs away according to google maps ( 377 kms) and wants to know if it will make the trip. Should I deliver it or just let her take it and pray that there are no disasters along the way?

Are you planning on pre-assembly or does the set up allow for it to be assembled at the site?

I transported my nephews wedding cake over 4 hours, unassembled, and assembled it there.

If you use a simple set-up design, like push in pillars or even the hidden pillars, where all they have to do is set the tier in place, you might consider that option, whether they pick it up or you deliver it. If they are picking it up, of course add a "disposable equipment fee" to cover the costs of your plates and pillars.
