I need to make a Cinderella doll cake (where the skirt is the cake with doll standing up inside) for my granddaughter's birthday. I need to bake the cake on Saturday, decorate with fondant on Sunday. I will leave on Tuesday morning for a day and a half drive to Virginia. I'm concerned about keeping the cake in the car for 2 days, although the weather should not be too hot. I'm also concerned about the length of time from actually decorating the cake til serving - 4 days. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I have done similar w/o problems As long as you can use air conditioning the warmest part of the trip w/cool evenings it should be fine Very slightly under bake the cake — well just be sure to not over bake it 4 days isn’t that bad :) Of course it’s not ideal but really should not be a problem Good luck.....Oh someone’s going to jump on here w/details on how to make a “cool box” for transporting the cake
Well, I don't want to disappoint Lynne, so here is the video showing how to build a portable cooler for cake delivery. I use this for every delivery, winter and summer and believe in it. The last one I delivered was more than 2 hours away and it was plenty hot, although the car was air conditioned. When we got home, about 6 hours later, there was still ice in the bottles.
I made a cake for a lady who transported it 18 hours for a birthday party and she used dry ice. Worked a charm.
