Hi everyone :)
I recently received my first request to ship cake toppers. I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips, tricks, pointers, or just things to know on how to ship cake toppers. Any help is greatly appreciated! I want to make sure these little guys get to their home safe and sound! I have attached a picture of the cake toppers that will be traveling if it helps.

I shipped a bunch of Wizzard of OZ toppers once. All but one arrived safely. The legs came off Alice :( I tightly wrapped each piece in lots of tissue paper, then bubble wrap and made sure there were tight in the box, then I padded another box w/bubble wrap and put the 1st box into that for shipping.
I am almost sure those 'pigtails' on the pink/girl are going to break off :( Hopefully they will not break into many pieces and the recipient will be able to 'glue' them back on.
Thank you for the help!
The figures in that picture are ones that I made for a previous customer, but I will be duplicating them for the shipping order.
Do you have any suggestions on how I can get her pigtails to my customer in one piece?
Thank you!! :)
Could you not attach them? Wrap well in bubble wrap and give instruction on how to attach them. I think the customer could use a drop of melted choco or even a dot of hot sugar water would hold them in place. You could test either of those methods to see if they work (know the choco will - not sure of the sugar water.)
Thank you :) I think I'll probably try sending the pigtails unattached and send along a red candy melt for the customer to use to attach them.
Thank you for the suggestion!
