I have a three tier round wedding cake due by September 11th. The problem is that it has to travel about 2 hours pre-stacked. I am not attending the wedding, and MOB is picking the cake up. She will have someone with her to hold the cake on the drive. I offered to make a smaller three tier and maybe two sheet cakes verses a huge, heavey three tier. What are your thoughts? Any ideas on how to make a huge three tier travel well?

i agree. icon_wink.gif you are taking a big risk having someone unfamiliar with transporting a cake that big. icon_cool.gif

You need to do all the thinking for them and package it well.
It'll be fine.

I always tell my folks to drive like there's an egg balanced
on the dash board--don't let it roll. Drive gentle.

Make sure its as stable as possible and also make sure you have her sign a release form stating that it's not your responsibility once its out of your hands.
