Hi, I wondered how everyone posts their cake toppers? I have a lot of people wanting me to courier because they live so far away. I'm so afraid the delicate toppers will break and I will have to refund the $. Can you please post pictures of how you package and send? Thank you! :)

What exactly are you mailing? You have to pack different things differently, and some things are pretty much guaranteed to break in transit so it isn't worth trying.

Hi, thanks for your reply :) I will be selling all sorts of toppers. Some will be flat cupcake toppers, others will be tall figurines for cakes. For example one of my cakes below, I will be making a whole lot of various baby toppers with different outfits on. Do I wrap in tissue paper, bubble wrap? I have no clue. In your opinion, what do you think isn't worth sending? Thank you! :) x

If they're pretty solid you can just wrap them in bubble wrap and send them. Anything thin or fragile is riskier and you'll have to experiment. Send some things to a friend and see how they travel before you figure out what works and what doesn't.

Yeah I did think about sending to a friend. Also buying from a competitor to see how theirs are packaged!
