How to pack your baked goods for shipping

Packing your baked goods as soon as they have cooled will keep them fresh and is the best practice when packing and shipping your holiday baked goods.  Use Ziploc bags to seal the baked goods to keep them fresh and then placing them in airtight containers.  Be sure to use wax paper between the layers of the baked goods to keep them separated; this will help with shifting of the baked goods during transport.  Finally, place your carefully packed baked goods inside of a larger box and fill in the space around your baked goods with bubble wrap and packing peanuts to prevent movement during shipping.
