I was just asked if I could ship cake pops to another state. I am thinking that cake pops would not ship well but maybe cake balls would but I have no idea how to package them. Anyone ever do this?
I just did this for my MIL so I probably went overboard with packing. First I got candy boxes so I didn't put too many in a box together. Lined the bottom with paper towels and thin foam. Put the cakeballs in cupcake liners and put them in snugly. Then topped with more paper towels and foam so they didn't shake at all. Then I put the boxes (4 total) in a larger box completely surrounded with foam and the air pockets that come in deliveries. The final box was probably 4x as big as the original but they got there safe and sound. Thank goodness she was paying the shipping!
I did cake balls from MO to PA (in the fall/winter) when it was cool. Put the cake balls in the little paper liners (like mini cupcake liners) and placed them down inside egg cartons. Then placed parchment paper over the top before closing carton. They shipped perfectly.
I have shipped cake pops, by prority mail I wrapped them in bubble wrap put them in a box and bubblewrapped that as well and then into the priorty box they arrived in great condition
