Anyone Use Dry Ice For Shipping In Hot Months?

I am getting nervous about shipping a July order from Wisconsin to Washington D.C. next month. The order is for 150 wedding favors cookie favors with an edible image. I use a glaze very similar to Toba's icing glaze and I have sometimes found that if there is still moisture in the icing/cookie (not sure which one) once their bagged, then it seems the excess moisture distorts the image. OR, if the packaged cookie gets exposed to too much humidity - that can distort the image too. That's the part I'm worried about ... the cookies will look great once I package them, then sit in a hot facility or delivery truck and arrive all distorted for the bride's wedding day!

To ease my fears, I've thought about sending the cookies with some form of coolant inside the box. This is something I've never done before, nor have I received a package with dry ice in it.

Could anyone offer me some tips or buying suggestions for dry ice?

Also, if someone has a better idea for protecting the cookies from humidity exposure during mail transit, I would greatly appreciate it!

A photo is attached to show what I'm afraid of happening.

Thank you, Melissa
