transporting a cheesecake
ok so its my SOs grandmas birthday on the weekend and he asked me to make a cheesecake to take, seemed easy enough but his grandma lives 4.5hours away by car, so i will have to take it with me in the car. im worried bout the amount of time if will be out of the fridge and how easily it could be damaged by the distance, like it sliding info something etc.
my best plan so far is to buy a plastic cake container, one the same size as my cake, and put it on that in a box with bags of ice around it. does this sound like it might work?
i plan to make a raspberry white chocolate cheesecake similar to the one i made last time as it got such good reviews. but my SOs dad is a baker who doesn't really like me so this cheesecake has to be the best thing ever! lol
how can i make the yummy fruity topping to go on it, like you get with bought ones, ill take it down in a jar and assemble it there.
so those are the questions;
whats the best way to transport a cheesecake in the car for almost 5 hours?
and how do i make the yummy sauce stuff that i hope will set on top?
any other advice would be great as i have only ever made one cheesecake before
