  • I think you need to get an ice pack and one of those large rubbermaid containers, put several layers of plastic over the ice pack, and it should keep the figures cool withoug making them sweat,, 9 hours you know your going to have to stop the car, so i am afraid they will melt from heat, but I know they can't be 100% cold either,,have you thought about just buying a cake when you get there? Or calling ahead and ordering one? I think it is awesome that you want to go to all of this work, but I think that you might end up with a mess after you spent so much time, effort , and energy on the cake,, hope you have a good birthday party!
