How do I transport my wedding cake long distance?
When you place a cake in the back of a car, weather in a box or just stacked on a cake board, you want to make sure it doesn’t move around as you drive. The easiest way to do this is to place the cake or box on top of a non-slip mat. The best option is a silicone baking mat that is a little larger than your cake.

How do you plan an out of town wedding?
So with that said, here are a few tips for planning an out of town wedding:
- Get a planner who is familiar with the area.

- When it’s time for the wedding, establish a home base.
How do you transport a cake without melting it?
Instead place your cake on a flat, level surface, such as in the trunk of the car. For added stability, use a non-skid mat (or even that yoga mat in your trunk) to prevent the boxes from sliding around. Keep temperature inside and outside the car in mind. Cakes should be kept cool to prevent melting.
How can I transfer a cake without a cake lifter?
Slide two big, sturdy spatulas or turners – heavy nylon or metal ones will work best – under opposite sides of the cake board, avoiding the front. Gently move the cake and board to the serving platter; carefully remove one spatula to lower the cake onto the platter.
Can you stack a wedding cake the night before?
How far in advance can wedding cakes be stacked? It’s best to leave the icing to dry overnight before stacking. However, place all the dowelss in before the icing dries to prevent cracking when the dowel are pushed in.
What should I know before buying a wedding cake?
When deciding what size cake to order, first look to your guest count. Generally, three tiers will serve 50 to 100 guests; you’ll likely need five layers for 200 guests or more. If the reception is in a grand room with high ceilings, consider increasing the cake’s stature with columns between the tiers.
How much should you order for a wedding cake?
One of the first questions your wedding cake baker will ask you is how many servings you’d like for your guests. There are plenty of people who attend a wedding and never take a slice of cake, so you can usually get away with ordering enough cake for 77 to 85 percent of guests.
What is the etiquette for out of town wedding guests?
A common rule of wedding etiquette is that the bride and groom are responsible for arranging lodging accommodations for their respective out-of-town guests. If guests are not staying with family, the bride and groom can help defray hotel expenses. However, wedding guests are ultimately responsible for lodging costs.
Do I need to register my marriage if I get married abroad?
A marriage abroad will be legally recognised in the UK providing it was contracted according to the law of the country in which it took place. There is no requirement, or facility, to register the marriage in England afterwards.
