I am surprising my nephew with a red velvet cake next week. I am shipping the cake from New York to Kansas. It will cost $100 to overnight so I am sending it 3rd day for $40 instead. So here is my problem. How do I send the cake for 3 day delivery and keep it fresh. I plan on baking it Saturday freezing it till Tuesday. Is there another icing other than cream cheese I can use to have the same true red velvet taste but not need refrigeration? Or is there anything I can use to pack it which will keep it cool & safe for 3 days.
Pack it with dry ice.
You use regular buttercream with cream cheese pudding from Jello to have that cream cheese taste without the real cream cheese. I would also wrap the cake in plastic wrap and bubble wrap to make sure it doesn't get messed up in transit.
