But sometimes we’re separated by many miles from the ones we love and treating them to a gourmet cake on their birthday may seem impossible.
Luckily, it’s easier than ever to send a birthday cake by mail thanks to our tried and true method for birthday cake delivery.
Bake Me A Wish! has spent the better part of a year testing and perfecting a variety of methods for keeping a cake fresh and delicious enroute, so you can surprise your loved one on their special day with a gourmet birthday cake.
But how does it all work? How can we keep a cake fresh and structurally intact for overnight delivery anywhere in the United States?
We consulted with some of the most experienced packaging engineers in the country to develop a reliable and effective system for sending birthday cakes by mail.
Our Method for Sending a Birthday Cake by Mail
- The cake is collared, carefully encased in plastic and placed in a decorative box to help it hold shape and retain freshness for the trip.
- The decorative gift box with the cake inside is then placed into a molded cooler to ensure safety of the product en route and maintain refrigeration.
- To ensure the cake stays fresh, we place a large ice pack on top of the cake before completely enclosing it in polystyrene and sealing the box for delivery.
- At this point, time is of the essence. We work with UPS to ensure the cake is delivered on-time to its appropriate destination. Cakes packed with this method can arrive in a 72 hour time frame fall-spring, and 48 hours in summer. Knowing the temperatures of where you ship from and where you’re shipping to are key to determining your ship method.
Learning how to send a birthday cake by mail is easy. But actually doing it takes time, a lot of planning, and finding the right components. For further safety – freeze your cake first – it will not affect flavor and will help it arrive in one piece! The molded cooler and ice pack, as well as the interior packaging, however, are imperative!
