Wedding planner insisting on picking up cake-- - Page 4

post #46 of 48

I would have the wedding planner sign a waiver agreed by the bride, and then take a photo of the cake sitting in the car before they drive away. Then there is clear evidence that the cake was in perfect condition before she drove off, and any damage created by the time she arrives at the venue would have been clearly done by her driving there.

I refrigerate everything regardless of whether it's fondant or buttercream. If it has a lot of gumpaste or sugarwork on it that would go on closer to the time of delivery, but I keep everything refrigerated regardless. Cakes with fondant will sweat when you take them out of the fridge, especially if it's humid, but if you leave them alone and don't touch them it will dry out eventually. If you're not sure, take a piece of fondant, roll it out on a board, decorate it with the piping,etc that the cake will have on it, then take it out of the fridge and let it sit so you can see what it will do.

Here's the story of the dropped cake: http://www.acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2013/06/how-to-give-mother-of-bride-stroke-on.html

**UPDATE**

 

The planner FINALLY posted pictures from this wedding on Facebook! The heat (or possibly the drive, or both) definitely got to the cake but it wasn't terrible. I have no idea if the new venue had AC or not. The top tier was looking a little wonky but otherwise ok. The photographer did get a great shot of it from above.

 

EDIT: in the picture of the bride and groom cutting it, it doesn't look wonky at all.
