It is Pancake Day today! Many people get together to make their own pancakes or they buy them from available stores, but if you fancy baking some pancakes for a foreign friend or relative, here are some tips to getting them shipped fresh and ready to eat.
Make sure to prepare all foods immediately before packing and mailing to ensure maximum freshness, however let all foods cool completely before boxing them up and shipping, as hotter foods can cause condensation on the inside of the container used to post them.
To ensure freshness, choose the fastest shipping method available. You can even request urgent shipping from various companies.
Cookies and various other baked goods with sticky glazes and iced decorations can be protected by putting sheets of waxed paper in between each layer. Also avoid sending muffins and cookies with moist fillings or frostings as they can become sticky or soft at room temperature.
Make sure to check your local post office restrictions to see what types of goods can be posted internationally. At RAND Logistics we can ensure top quality postage at competitive rates. Contact us for more information.
With Pancake Day coming up tomorrow, we here at RAND Logistics are looking forward to testing out new pancake recipes in preparation for the big day. However you may know a friend or relative who isn’t so great at baking, and might need a little help.
Baked goods and various perishables are post-able, but it depends on where you want to send them. Check your local postage guidelines to see what types of baked goods and perishable foods are allowed to be sent cross country and internationally. Here at RAND, we have put together a number of top tips that will help keep your baked goods in the best possible condition so that they reach their recipient relatively unharmed.
Choose the Right Container
Hard air locked containers are the best way to sent baked goods. Particularly for long distance parcels, air locked containers are recommended, as plastic will keep it fresh and prevent the goods from becoming stale.
Mark the box fragile to ensure that the postal office takes better care of it. ‘This side up’ also works well for decorated cupcakes and frosted doughnuts.
We’ll continue with more tips to delivering baked goods tomorrow, but for excellent service and first class delivery on all packages and parcels from Bahrain to Bulgaria and further afield, choose RAND Logistics.
