My husbands aunt is getting married next june & has asked me if I could make their cake, I do not do this for a living only for hobby, now it looks like she wants a 3 tier cake vanilla cake with fresh flowers. coverered in white BC, now the kicker is the wedding is about a 4 1/2 hour drive...
My questions are if I'm doing 3 tiers to feed 100 people what sizes would I have to do, also do you think I can transport 3 tiers covered in BC for 5hrs with out it melting in the summer?
Thanks for all your help, i'd really like to do this cake, but I'm not too sure I can pull it off.
Just look on the wilton cake chart or earlenes cake chart to determine the size tiers.
Yes, as long as you have a well supported cake you can make the drive. I have driven about that far before in a hot humid midwest air in August and made it fine. Just kept the ac cranked the whole time. I was freezing, but so was the cake
You can definately do it. A 6/9/12 round serves 100. I would suggest assembling after delivery.
I would second the notion of assembling after delivery too. Much less chance of something happening.
indydebi has a recipe on here for buttercream that she says will stand up to lots of heat!
I agree w/assembling after delivery! Put the support in after you get there, then if it settles your posts will be the right length.
Thank you everyone for your support! I was really weiry about doing this but feel much better now ;o)
