Kittimami,   There is a thread titled "Shipping A Fondant Covered Cake" that has a few ideas to try.  It does seem to be hit and miss as to whether a cake gets there in tact regardless of who the carrier is.   I have successfully shipped 4 cakes through the USPS.  They were different sizes, but all of them were chocolate mud cakes and covered in fondant.   Good luck.

Thank you, but I should probably give credit to my husband since it was actually his idea.
I have successfully mailed four fondant covered cakes since September through the USPS using priority mail.  What I did was find a cake box that was the closest in size to the finished cake (they were different sizes) and then filled all the empty space in the box with stale miniature marshmallows.  Then packed that box tightly inside of a corrugated box.  I didn't want the inside box shifting around while in transit.   The three days that the September cake spent in...
I second AnnieCahill on the amaretto ganache.  That was the first thing that popped into my head when I read your post.  Chocolate cupcake filled with amaretto ganache covered in amaretto buttercream.  My mouth is drooling, think I should go make some cupcakes.
