I have a friend who wants to send a cake or something baked to her husband for his birthday who is deployed overseas. She said it takes 10 days for it to arrive. I'm at a loss ...what could possibly stay fresh and edible by the time it arrives. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Decorated cookies will stay fresh if they are individually wrapped, and they'll be easy to share.
AIndividual cakes baked in mason jars. Put the lids on while they are hot so it seals well. I suggest a can of store bought frosting so he can frost them as he eats them. Perfect for sharing too! Homemade cookies and RKT ship well too. If she doesnt have a vacuum sealer I ssuggest putting them n a ziplock freezer bag with a slice of bread or two. Insert a drinking straw and zip the bag closed and use the straw to suck the rest of the air out. Works like a charm, but i would not suggest brownies. Once the air is sucked out it looks very unappetizing..lol
ASomething else to consider is a site called Bake Me a wish. Thos will stay fresh and they have a good selection. There is also a particular cake that for every one purchased they will match it and send one to a deployed servicemember
Thanks! those are great suggestions. I will pass these ideas along to her. She will be excited to be able to him something special for his birthday!
