Don't bundle them to gether...meaning on top of each other or side by side...and wrap in sheet lengths with bubble wrap. Have fun...it is a chore, but one that shows love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to ask...what type of baked goods...

Cookies can be preserved by stacking them and putting them into an old bread wrapper, then taping it tightly, followed by packing them in a box with lots of newsprint.
You can also use old pringle cans, if they are small enough, making sure to stuff a few paper towels in the top to completely fill the tube.

For cakes, I suggest going to Wal-Mart, os some such place, and purchasing one of those cheap plastic containers, making sure it is just the same size and shape of the cake.

Additionally, make sure you mark the packages as "Fragilr", and spent the extra $1.50 to INSURE it for $50.00.......The Postal Service tends to take care with insured packages better than uninsured.

Hope this helps.

Heh I got a chocolate cake from england one time.. guy put it in a tupperware type bowl and taped the lid on and then wrapped it in a box and it came just fine. You can lay paper towling between layers of stuff too.. or waxed paper that helps cushion fuck i can't speel today anyway... don't worry too much baby love.. it's the thought that counts!

I've sent tiny little homemade pecan pies to Japan from Texas for my mother's family in one of those plastic containers made by Z*p L*ck by putting a layer wax paper between them, then a plastic wrap and paper towel cushion on top. All arrived in one piece and were horded and devoured by one of my Obaachians (Aunt).

I just packed the plastic container as full as I could get it with baked goodies and added Hersey Kisses to fill in between. I'll know Monday or Tuesday if they arrived fine or not. And, yeah,it's nice that it arrives looking all pretty but it's going to taste just as good even if it breaks up a little.

Or you could send them one at a time wrapped up in a concrete block. Just a suggestion.

Belle, I've figured it out.. ok first you need a nice big fluffy robe and a large crate.. wrap yourself in the fluffy robe.. get in the crate.. get someone to put the top on.. have yourself delivered via airmail and I'll be really really really happy to unwrap you.. I guarantee no crumbs!

You can also fill in the void spaces with air popped non-salted popcorn. It is almost weightless and won't cost as much as the other stuff and they get an extra treat.

With things like cookies, I line the container with paper towels and add air popped, non-salted popcorn to cushion and fill in the spaces. It doesn't add or take away any flavor.
I used to ship them to ex-brother in laws in Japan and England..They arrived just as they were sent out.

But as already mentioned. even if a few do break or crumble, they will taste just as good and be just as appreciated.
