Assemble the following items:
frozen pie or unfrosted cake & frosting in an 8 oz. jar
plastic domed lid
packing material such as, newspaper, shredded paper or foam peanuts
box large enough for pie or cake pan
Place packing material on top of plastic covered pie or cake.
Using packing tape, affix the plastic domed lid over the packing material. This will keep the pie or cake from shifting during shipping.
Place the pie or cake in a box and stuff with additional packing material.
Using packing tape, secure the box closed and attach the address label.
Immediately go to mailing center and ship via next day delivery. (note: if your loved one lives in a very small town, 2 day delivery will also work well.)
Pies that ship well include fruit pies with a double crust, thick custard pies such as pumpkin and pecan. Cream pies and meringue pies DO NOT ship well.
