What is the best way to transport homemade buttercream? I have to put a cake together for a party tomorrow, but I'm leaving today. Should I put it on ice? Chill it first? I'll be driving about 3 hours and not using it until tomorrow.

If your buttercream does not have any "perishable" ingredients in it, you will be ok. Just keep it in the air conditioned car in an air tight container.

If your recipe has milk or eggs, I would place it in a cooler on ice.

Hope this helps...

How do you make your b/c? If it has milk, it would depend on how hot it is where u are going, I would just have it upfront in the car with a/c and then refridgerate it when i got there. If its shortening b/c then your good for like a week on the counter.

I would use one of those large hot/cold bags and put the BC in there with a couple of cold packs and keep it up front with you. It should be fine. thumbs_up.gif

The large hot/cold bags cost about $1.50. I keep them in my car for my groceries.
