Mailing cupcakes with frosting

Hello. I want to priority mail cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Any tips on ensuring freshness and that these do not spoil? Thanks

Dry ice will keep the cheese fresh.

I would think an even bigger dilemma would be how to keep the frosting from getting smushed when the package it tipped over. How have you solved that problem?

In our house, dog hair is a condiment!
OMG! I decided to blog!

I solved the crushing problem a long time ago. Whenever I get a take-out pizza, I save the little plastic thingies they use to keep the lid of the box from smashing the pizza when you stack them 10 high in the delivery vehicle.
If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, HUNT IT DOWN AND KILL IT!

I would mail them unfrosted with a container of frosting, a container of chopped walnuts, a plastic knife and a set of detailed instructions on how to frost them. If the person you are sending them to does not have a sense of humor they do not deserve cupcakes!

Thanks you guys for the great advice. I will try the dry ice. And the pizza container tops are a great idea too. Even considered the sending the frosting separately!

If anyone is interested, apparently there is a website called sugarcraft.com that actually sells bakery shipping items...
