I'd say call the airline you plan to use and ask them.

You'd have to be sure you don't have a file in your cake, though. In that case, you might get booted off the plane.

In that case, leave the nail files out.

I thought, perhaps, you were planning on bringing your father the volcano cake for his birthday. Not kidding here. Just my guess.

I couldn't find any mention of cupcakes, or other baked goods, on the TSA website: What To Know Before You Go - Permitted and Prohibited Items. However, I am sure that they will need to be packaged in such a manner that they can be opened, inspected and run through the machines.

Different airlines have different rules and restructions for carry-on items. The only way to know for sure is to contact your airline.

You really shouldn't have any trouble taking them thru---it's the liquids, flammables, and sharp metal objects that they are most concerned about----now if you lace them with "grass" you might have some interest from a furry wagging sniff dog tail but you don't seem the type to ruin great cupcakes---:) What a lucky brother!

Depends on airport security. Make them look really really nasty and they will let you on with them. If they look too good, they might 'confiscate' them, LOL.
Just kidding, I think you are safe until someone tries using baked goods in an evil plot, but definitely check with the airport first. You can call the airline directly, or speak with airport security. I would speak with airport security as they do, technically, have the final word.
