Looking for the best baked goods that are simple and easy to ship? What better way to send a note (or treat!) to your family and friends than to box up up some homemade sweets and treats and put them in the mail.

But don’t start sprinting to the mailbox quite yet…there are a few tips to keep in mind when shipping baked goods. Not all shipping methods are created equal and there is a bit of planning and packing that has to take place.

Bakery Goods To Send or Have Delivered

The best part about goods and treats being delivered is that our delivery services have become quite quick during the years. You can even ship frozen goods to others and they’re certain to be cold upon arrival.

Many people ship bakery items and cakes, etc. for business purposes but you can totally ship them for fun, too!

I’m a fan of receiving anything in the mail that isn’t a bill so feel free to ship me any type of pastry, bread, gourmet dessert or anything else that you fancy!

While there is a ton of great information about shipping baked goods out there, you do need to be certain to remember three basic things.

  • Be mindful of temperatures – If it needs to be cold, package it appropriately. If you’re mailing desserts to someone during the summer, skip any recipes that have chocolate.
  • Secure, secure, secure – You need a lot of packing material and a lot of packaging materials. Your baked goods should be inside of a container and then inside of a box. They shouldn’t be moving around at all or they’ll break up in the process.
  • Don’t skimp on the shipping costs – It’s not always cheap to ship food quickly, but sometimes, it’s a must! You need to be certain that your baked goods arrive in a few days. The shorter, the better. Choose a delivery method and a company that you trust.

And just in case you want to make a few treats for yourself to keep at home, check out these other dessert recipes as well!
