If you do pre-assemble it make sure that the tiers are doweled and that you run a center dowel through it it keep the tiers in line. I delivered one assembled and it was fine but I was a nervous wreck!

Good luck!

I would say set it up when you get there.... I would be afraid that one good BUMP and the whole thing topples.

hmmm ~ if you do - be very careful. I'd just stack them when I got there to be safe. Mine was stacked so I was able to run a dowel through to keep them from toppling in case I had to make a sudden stop or something.

I don't know about you but I have trouble just getting the cakes into the van. I put way too much work into the cake to take any chances. What if an animal runs in front of your vehicle? icon_surprised.gif Although I know the cake is in the van - I'd jam on my brakes just out of impulse. No chances taken here. Call me chicken no matter what the distance.

Cakes preassembled on plates and pillars are just asking for trouble in my opionion. It doesn't take that long to set it up once it is delivered and it is much safer that way.

BJ, I don't think your chicken, I wouldn't dream of even taken a chance on one of my cakes getting messed up. I have to deliver one this Sunday and I don't pre-stack and I am already stressing over it and I don't have far to go either, so I am with youicon_smile.gif
