I have a cake order from someone who is about 5 hours away and it's a carrot cake icon_biggrin.gif. If I were to have to drive the cake there myself it was cost way too much icon_surprised.gif so I'm looking for ideas on how to ship it. Fed-Ex? Also how do I package it so that it won't be a cake disaster when they get it? One option I considered was baking the layers and wrapping them in plastic wrap, making the frosting and putting it in a sealed container and packaging all that in a box with maybe a lunch box type ice pack. Can anyone help me with this?

I would contact Fed Ex or UPS and tell them what you are trying to ship and see if it is possible. If they could take extra steps to make sure the cake arrives in one piece. You would have to have this side up in large letters and handle with care all over the box. The only other option would be to have your customer drive to you to pick it up. I would make sure to use an extra large cake board to make sure they wouldn't press the sides of the box in and smash the cake.
