My guess is that UPS is more familiar with home delivery than FedEx.

Here's the recipe for Grandma O's Marble Cake

1 C 2% milk (room temp)
1/4 C vanilla yogurt (the real stuff)
3 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour (no-sift)
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
dash of nutmeg
1 tsp fresh grated lemon rind

Assembly:
  • Cream butter, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla & yogurt together in large mixing bowl.
  • Mix flour, salt, nutmeg, baking powder together in small bowl.
  • Whip egg whites to med peaks.
  • Combine dry ingredients and milk into butter/sugar mixture, by thirds till fully combined.
  • Fold in egg whites.
  • Combine 1/3 of batter with melted, cooled chocolate.
  • Add lemon rind to other 2/3 batter.
Into the pan:
  • Butter and flour tube pan (make sure it has a removable bottom) and pour half of white batter into pan.
  • Add all of chocolate batter on top and then add the remaining white batter.
  • Make sure no chocolate batter touches side of tube pan as it will burn a little.

Serve as-is or with a rasberry mint sauce.

Do you have to refridgerate the cake? There's a lot of dairy in it.

I was just wondering for shipping purposes. What you could do is ship it with dry ice and it will be solid the whole time.

I ship bake goods every Christmas. I'm still wondering how far you need to ship it.

I need to ship it about 300 miles - not too far. I expect weather temps could be near 70 F.

In that case I would say UPS ground (should be almost next day delivery), wrapped in lots of plastic wrap, suspended in the package on the air pillow packing material and you should be fine. I ship a lot of packages.
