Transporting a lemon meringue pie-help!
In 2 weeks, my grandpop is having his 80th B-day party. He loves lemon meringue and as a (sort of) gag gift, I am bringing one of those GIANT lemon pies from Al Gelato on Robertson. My only issue is that the drive from the restaurant to the party is about 1 hour and I am a little nervous about the effect of the hear, even with my air conditioner on.
Does anyone know if the meringue should last an hour in the car? Alternatively, will an icebox help (or would the temperature be too severe?)
It should be fine as long as you have air... I'd chill the car nicely before picking it up. You could also get one of those freezer preserver bags, the ones they make for groceries, and slip the pie box inside to keep it chilled, like these... http://www.reusablebags.com/store/reu...
