This was an interesting attempt!
See if you can follow this crazy story!
I am in Colorado, my dad lives in TEXAS!
I had this thought that it would be fun to try to
MAIL A CAKE! (Stop laughing all you cake decorators!!)
So I created a 6" cake, covered it with fondant. All decorations were made with fondant. I found the perfect size tin and slid the VERY COLD cake in the tin and put the tin in a box filled with packing peanuts.
