Good luck to you, I stand by my original answer, ship the pre measured ingredients and the method in a pretty container and let them make the recipe themselves.
Up to 6 Weeks!?!!?!?!? This is a food item going over 5000 miles in the air. This needs to the sent in no more than one week in order to make sure it is fresh once it gets to Russia. That is not cheap at all.
I tried to price a 9" by 9" by 3" box going from Vancouver to Siberia at UPS and DHL and got quotes of roughly 200 bucks Canadian!?!?!?
I got a 161 buck quote from a US location to Siberia in roughly 8 days for a 9" by 9" by 3" box going to Siberia weighing only three pounds.
