Mail a cake?

How do I mail a cake so itwon't fall apart or mess up the decorations?

The only kind I have mailed I made in a disposable pan and decorated it right in the pan. Then I wrapped it with cardboard on the top so nothing would bother the decorations. Next I wrapped it in bubble wrap and then into the shipping box. It arrived at my son's college dorm in great shape. It was Feb. And we are in Colorado, so it didn't get too warm.

No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I'm more amazed than anything that there was actually a helpful response on this subject. I can't quite imagine a successful cake-mailing. I imagine something more like cake-like-goop in a box.

What about freezing it first
Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.

I've only sent bundt cakes, but have done that very successfully. We purchased special mailing boxes that fit well and all the cakes arrived in one piece and un-squashed.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
