You guys always come through for me, and I am so blessed to have found this site.

My dillema is that I am making a four teir cake 12,10,8,6 inches. It has to travel for about two hours. So, I plan to construct the top two teirs and the bottom two teirs, and leave them seperated until we get where we are going. Then, I will add the top two to the bottom two, and place my roses accordingly. They will be made ahead from RI.

The problem is this is my first wedding cake, and I don't know what all to take with me. I figured extra icing for possible mess-ups, extra RI roses to allow for breakage, my lifter for the teirs, dowel rods, but is there something I have not thought of?

I would hate to get all the way there, and realize I have forgotten something I need.

Thanks in advance. : )

I take a small level to make sure I've got the final tiers level when I put them together on site. Also, my tools for stacking, spatula, bags and tips I've been using in case I need to pipe something over.

Unless it's absolutely necessary to the design of the cake, I leave all tiers separated until I get to the site, then assemble there.

If you used pearl spray on the outside, take that along too.

Wet wipes to wipe icing off your hands when done (I always end up with some on me).

Toothpicks or skewers, in case you need some structural support. Oh, and wires and a wire cutter, if you used wires on your flowers. I forgot extra wire last weekend, and had to cut an extra flower down to use the wire as supports for the flower sprays.
