Hi all! I know there have been threads in the past that talked about shipping overseas, I mainly am looking for the ones that talk about cupcakes in a jar, I've found plenty online about cookies. I searched on CC and google site:cakecentral and didn't get anything!
I have read that if you're going to do a cake to send canned icing with it, but I am wondering if there is a way to do homemade icing, I think I remember the jarred cupcakes had icing on them.
Heat wont be an issue when I send anything btw. Thanks for any advice you may have!
I was reading a thread a couple months ago on the Cupcake Activist page
This is the link
I ship mine all the time and I use small mason jars I do layer cakes ones and ones with a whole cupcake decorated and all . I use BC icing and the make it with no issues my icing is made with all Alpine Shortening so it holds up well during the summer months
crzchef, I imagine I'd need to use an all shortening BC that my regular all butter one is not a good idea? Do you ship overseas or do you just do in State?
Does anyone else know if a shortening based buttercream would be better to ship?
How long does it take mail to get there?
I would also ask where you were shipping to as some countries don't allow food to be shipped without a lot of paperwork.
I'm guessing it's going to an APO address so it should be fine since it's military.
Yes tiggy it is, and I think it's gonna take at the very least 14 days to get there... possibly and probably more.
I would be concerned about mold, the jar will hold in moisture. You'd be better off sending cookies.
I was thinking that too but I swear in one of the topic's that used to be on here people were talking about baking in the jar and it seals itself or something, I just can't seem to find the thread!
I guess cookies are the way to go!
