Travel Themed Wedding Cake Ideas For Couples

A stunning wedding cake idea using antique suitcases and perhaps some world map layers covered with fresh or sugar blooms would be an excellent choice for a couple who loves to travel. A colorful world map or individual continents on a cake are both delicious and trendy options for a wedding cake that features a map theme. If you want your cake to stand out, pair map tiers with more neutral and plain tiers, or use bright and contrasting colors. You have the option of topping the top of your travel cake with the names and/or symbols of the locations that hold the most significance for you.

How To Travel With a Wedding Cake?

The cake should be refrigerated for at least a few hours before the trip, and you should also turn on the air conditioning for ten to fifteen minutes before you leave so that the car is chilly enough for the cake. To avoid melting, keep it out of direct sunlight and under a sun shield if possible.

A cake box is a must if you're going to travel with a cake. Sizes, strengths, and prices all vary, but they're really reasonable overall. They're strong enough to hold a wedding cake and cost less than two dollars. Just tape the box together, then use a knife to create a flap in one end to slide the cake in, and finally tape up the other end.

Consider utilizing insulated transportation/cool boxes and placing frozen packs around the sides of your cake box if you need to carry your cake on a very hot summer day or across a long distance.

How to Travel With a 3-tier Cake?

You can travel with a cake that has 3 tiers. It is possible to transport the separate tiers in boxes on a flat surface (like the new flooring) without the risk of breaking anything. You also have the option of transporting the two lower tiers already stacked, but the remaining tiers will need to be disassembled and stacked at the destination.

Cake stands should not be used to transport a cake. If the cake is larger than the usual cake boxes, you may need to construct your own box. You may also utilize the larger boxes sold at stores like Lowe's and Walmart. Easily slip your cake inside the box by cutting a line down the longest, highest side and taping up the ends.

Can You Bring Cakes on a Plane Trip?

The short answer is “yes,” and that applies both to local and international flights within the United States. On international flights coming into and leaving the USA, you can also fly with them.

There is no need to worry about bringing a cake through airport security because the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) permits cake to be brought through both carry-on and checked baggage. A cake from the market or one baked at home is both acceptable. If the cake is not already packaged, you should either wrap it in plastic or place it in a container with a tight-fitting lid.
