Well tis the season of Bouche Noels, Croquebuche, fancy little frilly things.....
Assembly can be a pain for these at an offsite location, yet transporting is even scarier? How far do you guys go on these treats?

Get sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, and cross your fingers. Best bet make item a
day in advance and let chill over night, use dowel sticks where necessary
and drive slow. I have to transport a four tier wedding cake with candy
ribbons into central park from Long Island. I will have no finger nails left I
assure you!

Croquembuche I make no more than 2 hours before the party. Buche de noel, I stick the cardboard bottom to a bare sheetpan with tape. The appendage gets a wooden skewer. I do about 20 of them each Xmas, and so far no casualties.

Last year I did a truffle croquembuche, but I assembled it at the party.
