Dessert buffet planning...is this ok?

TinyBG | Dec 3, 201407:56 PM

I'm planning a dessert buffet for a family function in a hall that doesn't have a fridge. Some of the desserts requested need to stay cold. I figured that since I'm making them ahead of time, I could freeze them then pack them in a cooler with a block of dry ice for transport and let them sit on thebuffet to thaw while people arrive so they'll be safe but thawed by the time people are ready to eat. Does that sound safe? Had anyone ever done that? The hall has air conditioning so it won't be sitting out in the sun.

The desserts I'm making are:
Marshmallow chocolate mousse
Baked cheese cake tartlets
Chocolate tartlets
Chocolate dipped oreos
Red velvet cupcakes
Fruit tartlets with nondairy filling
Macarons

I've already tried to cut out dairy where I can but I'd like to be really on the safe side.
