I'm traveling to a wedding this August and need to bring some baked goods. The trick is that the reception is a Saturday evening, and I'm making the 6 hour drive on Friday morning, so anything that I bake will have to be prepared on Thursday night and expected to last (or come out of the freezer on Friday morning). I'm used to freezing pies etc., but not sure how something will hold up if it's defrosting in the car all day.
Any thoughts on what can be baked on Thurs night and still taste reasonably good on Saturday night? I was thinking thumbprint cookies or meringues might hold up? Not sure about a pie?
Any thoughts about out-of-fridge defrosting in this situation would also be welcome! Thanks!
