I have to ship cupcakes in a couple of weeks...I am looking for suggestions on how to ship them safely.

I purchased the plastic containers that you see in the bakery, but not sure how to keep them in place, other than a dot of buttercream on the bottom of each then freezing them in the containers.

I am also worried about heat!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!

Thanks,

Jeanene

The heat will probably be a big problem. Also, you can't be sure they won't be turned upside down. Are they covered in fondant--that would make them more stable.

JoAnnB -

No fondant (Customer hates it)...These are buttercream.

Turning upside down was another concern....Not sure if this is going to work.

My other thought was freezing and packing in dry ice, but I'm not sure where I can purchase the dry ice. They would be shipped via next day air so I would be in hell for 24 hours wondering if they were going to make it.

Maybe I need to pass on this order!

thank you! Good luck with your cupcakes, but I think I would pass if I could. too much stress for not that much money.
cupcakes
packaging
dry ice
shipping
waiting
way too much money for no future returns.

I think you are right! I think I have to pass! icon_sad.gif I hate to turn down business, but sometimes I think you have to. I had doubts from the start with this!

Thanks...
