Travelling with a cake

Detroit Slim | Dec 20, 2006 05:54 PM

I want to bring a cake to a Christmas Dinner, but there's a 5 hour road trip between my kitchen and the dinner table.

I'd also love to make the cake in advance (today even, or possibly tomorrow), just to have it done and out of the way.

If it's just a basic layer cake, how feasible is it to pull it out of the oven, let the halves cool, put them back in the cake pans & cover with plastic wrap? Is there a better way to pre-make a cake and keep it fresh for a few days?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
