Travelling with flan

I will be driving for 3 hours by car for Christmas. I want to make two 9" flans 48 hours before they are to be served and take them with me in the car. Do you think they will diminish much physically or in taste?

Thank you.

  1. I do not think in taste they would diminish, but I would be concerned about texture issues.

    1. Also long as you don't unmold them until you get their you should be fine.

      1. The only time I've noticed that the texture changes is when the bottom gets kind of rubbery and that is from when the flan stays in the fridge too long (after a couple days). I've seen flan served at many a banquet and they taste great. I tend to like a taller flan, so I use a different sized pan than the standard 9". Love the coffee caramel one best. With whip cream... man... I think I'll make some! Good Luck!
