The Traveling Wedding Cake
by Evan B
Big Responsibility Traveling With A Wedding Cake
The responsibility of making a couple's wedding cake is one thing, but traveling 1063 miles with 10 layers of cake and 50 cupcakes in tow, adds an even greater element of importance.
From Texas To Georgia!
A few months ago my friends asked me to make their wedding cake.. the catch? I live in Texas and the wedding would be in Georgia. Honored, I said yes, and decided the logistics of it all would come in time. Oh, and this was my first time making one.
After some good advice (thanks Lorelie!) here is the original post called traveling far far away with a cake.
I made all the tiers in advance and froze them until it was time. Packed neatly in homemade boxes, the 10 layers traveled coach for their 5 hour trip. Once in GA, I made all the icing and decorated the cake at the reception hall the day before.
Surprisingly Calm For My First Time
I thought I was going to be nervous, but as soon as I got into the kitchen everything just came together. I had an amazing time decorating and loved the feeling of being a part of someone's special day. I can't wait to make another!
