Hi all,

My younger sister wanted a monster cake, so I've made 5 square dummy tiers covered in fondant, and the top tier will be real. I have a 4+ hour drive to the wedding venue. I've finished covering the dummies and the fondant is set/hardened but my question is, when I go to pack these suckers up, should I put some type of packing material around them when they're in boxes? Packing peanuts? I just don't want the fondant to crack on the way there. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Even if the fondant is hardened, it still might take an impression from packing peanuts. I would put them on the best non-slip material you can find before boxing them up (I hope you're doing this individually, if you have a 4-hour drive) and make sure your boxes are on flat surfaces and can't move around once they're packed in the car.
