Good idea about letting individual pieces thaw if necessary, I'll keep that in mind.   No scraps leftover -- but it will be between 30 and 44 degrees F during transport and party time, with no rain expected so I wouldn't expect humidity to be a problem.    But you're saying gradual defrosting will lessen the condensation or just that there will be more time for it to dry?  It would seem to me the total amount of condensation would remain the same regardless of...
I've got a finished (BC decorated) cake in the freezer ready to take to a family party this weekend.  It's basically an 8 inch round (slightly carved into a squatty sphere) with 3 layers, filled with chocolate BC and iced with plain BC.  The cake is 6 inches tall.  I put one bubble tea straw down the center to keep the layers from sliding.  It's currently in a rubbermaid type container and I plan to not open the container until shortly before serving.   I need to...

Thanks everyone for the feedback.  I will check out the Microplanes. 
I'm currently using a very small grater for lemon and orange zest and it's driving me nuts.  It takes forever to get a small amount of zest and it doesn't even stand alone so it's hard to hold while zesting.  I think something with a sturdy base that also has a basin for catching the zest would be nice...  Does anyone have one they love?  Thanks!
Thank you!
