I need to get a cake to Richmond, VA from Pittsburgh, PA. I can ship it on Greyhound in a container with dry ice. I wanted to do a two tier cake with a tiara on it. Do you think it will make it there in tact? I was thinking covering it with fondant would help it some. Any suggestions? icon_rolleyes.gif

I don't know that I'd do it just because i've ridden on the bus and it's a bumpy ride thumbsdown.gifthumbsdown.gif
Is there a reason you can't mail it? with the dry ice and fondant it should be fine.

Can you mail a two tier cake? I'd think they would turn it upside down a few times.

My husband worked for Greyhound over Christmas one year. I would not suggest using them if the horror stories he told me are true, and I have no reason to believe they aren't. Good luck!

Well, I think if it's packed really well so that no shifting occurred and you marked the box this side up and told them that it had to stay right side up it may be ok.
Or try one of the other shipping companies.
