Hey Cake Central folk, 

I was researching the best way to freeze sugar cookies for my mother in laws birthday on October 31st and came across a blog about doing this. Someone asked how they could freeze, package and then send cookies to solders overseas. I thought what an incredibly amazing idea, especially since I have been itching to bake these last few days. 


So my question is, how would I go about doing this. Obviously the making, decorating and freezing is simple, but what is the best way to package them. Should I put them in a tin and wrap those as well. Also, where would I go for address? Would the postal office have addresses or should I go to my local Armouries? 

Also, I'm in Canada if that helps.

While Im no use in addresses or how to go about doing this, If you do end up doing this I strongly suggest doing Anzac Biscuits (an Aussie Biscuit/cookie which was sent to the soldiers abroad during war as they contained no ingredients that spoiled and traveled well)

Here, in the US, services have gotten much "funnier" about accepting "outside" food products. Terrorism and all... a worry about tainted food. So I would check first. I would hate for your efforts to end up in the trash. :(


But yes, all the troops love it all. I made many packages for my son's former roommate who went to the Marines. He also had plenty to share, and did so. I don't know how they would accept a "random" package.

There is a FB group that coordinates large cookie deliveries to the troops.  Operation Cookie Takeover had a member stationed in Iraq, and bakers around the world put together about 14,000 cookies.  There has been at least one other OCT since then, and they are currently working on a collection for a carrier that just sailed.
