Hi everyone,

I have asked many times if I ship cakes and I always say "no". I'm wondering how this is done? How technical of a cake can be shipped....obviously no 3D. I can't imagine it would make it. Is it packed in ice, do you overnight...etc? I would love any input you guys have. Thanks in advance!!

It is extremely difficulticon_sad.gif From all I have read it needs to be a single layer; covered in fondant; and probably any decos sent separately to be put on by the customer. It is very, very expensive as it does need to be over nighted.
1st you need to find a box about the size of the cake; make a styro holder (cut shape in thick styro to set the cake down into) then fill w/styro peanuts all around it; then you need to get a larger box; pack some (styro) peanuts on the bottom; put in box w/cake and pack all around that w/peanuts. You could use blow-up bubble wrap instead of peanuts. This still does no ensure it will arrive o.k. HTH
