I am making a cake for a wedding shower, and would like to make it within the next 2 weeks for a July 28th event. Typically I make the Sara Moulton Classic white or yellow cake. It will travel in a car for about 5 hours on July 26, and I will put the icing and decorations on the day of the shower. Can you cake experts give me as many tips as possible? Much appreciated!
