I'm trying to figure out a way to bake & ship a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting cross-country to my daughter for her birthday. I was thinking of baking the cake in a 9 x 13" pan and securely cover it. I'd make a batch of cream cheese frosting (minus a couple of spoonfuls for tasting, of course!) and packing it in a separate container along with some candles for her to do a DIY birthday cake!! If it were to be shipped 2nd day (she lives in a remote area where overnight shipping would cost almost $100!), would the frosting be safe to eat??
Any other ideas or suggestions?
