I am relatively new with fondant. I have 4 tier wedding cake that has to travel for 3 hours. Originally she wanted it to be BC, so I was just going to transport it in 2 parts and put it together on site, covering up the hole on top of the top tier. Does it work the same way with fondant or do I need to transport it all put together? TIA!!

You can do it either way.

traveling with a cake put together for 3 hours spells disaster! box each cake separately to keep it away from the sun and just be prepared with all of your supplies when you get on site. icon_smile.gif good luck!

I travel with my cakes fully assembled all the time, BUT, my husband drills a hole into the wooden base plate and glues in a sharpened wooden dowel. I place each cake on a foamcore board - insert dowels into each cake then thread each cake down over the center dowel. I then place the finished cake into a car cooler (my husband made for me as well) that is filled with frozen ice packs and non skid mats. It's easy to just set the cake down on the cake stand and leave.

4 tiers....for three hours.....I think I would wait and assemble on site.
