It could be a pound cake. I just want it to get there in one piece! Plus I am a little leary of any topping, even a sugar drizzle over a pound cake. Do you think it would be ok? Shipping a cake is a first for me!
Don't be worried about having a topping. As I mentioned for Easter I shipped a scratch bundt cake and it had a lemon sugar glaze (I actually made a double batch of the glaze as I really wanted the cake to be enrobed in glaze). I decoratively wrapped the cake in cellophane and tied with curled ribbon. The cake arrived in one piece and looking very presentable as reported by the recipient.
Regardless of what type of cake you choose if you follow the freezing technique I mentioned in my earlier post and then ship promptly you'll have no issues. Let us know what cake you ultimately choose...
