Need a camping cake and frosting

leanneabe | Apr 15, 200709:47 AM     24

We're going camping for a friend's birthday in early June (it'll still be pretty mild here in SD and not too hot), but we're going up Friday night and celebrating her birthday Saturday (i.e., the cake won't be eaten until Saturday). So, what cake fillings and frosting hold up for a day?

I can keep everything in the cooler, but I'd rather not have to worry about spoilage. If needed, I can assemble it at the campsite (to keep the cake from sliding or smooshing).

I was thinking of a white cake, lemon curd, but I still need a frosting - no cream cheese or whipped cream, preferably.

Or, do you have an idea for a birthday cake (or cupcakes) that will camp well? I don't want a pie-as-cake or cookie idea; I do want to bring cake. We'll have about 15-20 people, too.

Thanks!
