Hi cakers


I'm supposed to leave 5 royal iced cookies, individually wrapped and then all placed in a bag, in a mailbox tomorrow morning.  I live in South Florida and I'm concerned about the heat.  Will they melt or get runny in the heat?  I'm not sure how long they will be in there.  It's Antonia's recipe.  Thanks in advance!

They should be fine as long as they are packaged after they have completely dried.  I've had wrapped RI cookies in extreme heat in my car all day and they were fine.

AI agree with Lisa. They will be absolutely fine. No risk of melting. I ship them all the time during the summer months. The biggest concern is breakage so make sure to bubble wrap and pack them well.

ACakemama2010 Which RI recipe did you use? I have 100 cookies to send to a gallery I'm Florida and not sure if I should use fondant or RI with my edible images for shipping.
