Can you wrap a cake in bubble wrap?
I know that may be a slightly strange question but I have a Japanese friend who is going home to see her parents this week and she has asked me to bake some mini cakes for her mum. Apparently she intends to put the cakes in her luggage for the journey (she has a hard case suitcase) but I’m afraid they will be in a thousand pieces by the time she gets there as aircraft handlers generally tend not to be very careful when it comes to moving luggage. Is there any way of making sure the cakes won’t get damaged? I thought of surrounding them with some bubble wrap in a plastic food container but have never done this before and wonder would it make the fondant icing they’re covered in sticky or sweaty? I think it may be an impossible mission so any advice will be gratefully received. Thanks, Lizzie.
