This has been a long time favorite of mine for years. It's great with so many recipes, esp angel food cake w/pineapple, etc. Can also add a little cocoa to make a lite chocolate icing.

Will this recipe hold up to travel about 30 minutes in the car or will it melt?

Tee, I think it should be fine, just don't set it in the sun, and also you could put a couple of ice packs around your cake carrier to keep it cool
