I'm doing a wedding cake for the first time next week. I'm doing a four tier cake and have to drive about 45 minutes to get to the reception hall. What is the best way to do this. I was going to assemblel have the cake and but in my dowels. then Do the other two top layers seperate. then when I get there put the top two on the bottom two. Should I enter another dowel down the four I dont think its long enough. Or should I just assemble the whole cake and transport it like that.
Well, you should start by using SPS as your support system. Then you can stack and travel.
I've posted this offer in a zillion threads. If you send me a PM with your email address, I'll send you pictures and instructions.
Does anyone know how to get this put in a sticky or as an acticle? I'm tried PMing Jackie (twice) but nothing happened.
i would love to see it as an article...it's frustrating when you have to re-post something...especially something as valuable as this.
so here's a bump!
So how does it get to be an article? Does a moderator or Jackie/Heath have to stumble upon this thread?
Once I put the cake together should I cover the cake to transport it? What should i cover it with. I know a box isnt big enough. Im afraid if I cover it with saran wrap it may stick to it.
I recently delivered a 3 tiered cake about 45 minutes away. I doweled the layers and put 1 dowel through the middle. I didn't cover it. Get a roll of that shelf liner stuff and use a piece of it under your cake board during transportation and it won't slide. I put it in the back of my sister's SUV and had no problems. I was a little nervous going over some railroad tracks though!
I have never boxed a tiered cake for delivery. And I use non-skid all the time. It is fabulous!
