Hey guys! This is my first time post here. I have been baking cookies and mini little things for a little over 13 years. And it was only last year that I have made a living out of baking.
Anyway, a friend who happens to be a wedding coordinator just booked me a wedding cake gig! Not that I haven't made wedding cakes but this one is a little different from the rest of the cakes I've made.
The couple said they want butter cake. I have no problem with the sizes in diameter, but I kind of have an issue with the height. They want 8 inches in diameter for the lower part of the cake and want it 12 inches in height. For the upper portion (2nd tier), they want 6 or 7 inches in diameter and 8 inches in height.
My issue here is they are picking up the cake from my house at 7AM and will travel 2 hours to get to the location.
I have a feeling that it's going to fall apart. Especially the weather in the Philippines is unbelievably hot this time around. Plus butter cake is too heavy.
This may be crazy but I don't think dowels will work to keep the cake intact. But is there any other way or tips you can give me so this cake will reach it's destination intact? or should I tell my coordinator friend that we should lessen the height of the cake?
