I am making a book cake for a graduate this week. The mom has to take the cake to SC, about 3-4 hours away. I wanted to make 2 books, stacked on top of eachother at an angle, but I'm not sure this is a good idea with the cake having to travel so far. Any thoughts? What would be the best way to secure them? Should I put a cardboard layer between them so the edge of the top book doesn't collapse? Or should I just do the one book and be safe? Thanks for any suggestions you may have!

YOu can do two books without a problem, you just need to make sure that the second one is supported well. I would suggest doubling up the cardboards or using foamboard to help support the corners while traveling.

I traveled 2 miles with mine and noticed after a few hrs of sitting on the table that the corners where starting to sag a little. I was the only one that noticed and to the others it just made the books look a little more realistic (as they were suppose to be old ones) but it bothered me.
