I am in desperate need of your help. I am making a cake for a birthday party, that is three hours from my home. I will be driving it down to Yuma, Arizona on Saturday and the weather is starting to get warmer. I was planning on using MMF to cover the cake and having it completely covered but not assembled before I leave.

Can I freeze the cake before I leave and let it thaw in the car on the way down? I cannot think of any other way to keep it cool enough to avoid any drooping.

I am welcome to any and all of your ideas.

Firstly, I don't think that freezing a fondant covered cake is advisable.

Will the cake be in the a/c? If so, I think it should be fine to just take it at room temp. I live in Texas and last May I transported a two tier fondant covered cake from Dallas to Houston (a 4.5 hour trip) with no problem. The cake left the house at room temp and stayed cool the whole way there thanks to the a/c.

Thanks. I appreciate your advice. The cake will be in the back of the SUV, so it will be in the AC, so I guess I will just box it up and drive it down.
