    I have the same concerns as you, with it getting to be summer and hotter and hotter Ive been told to just put it off and not send any muffins or bread this time of year. I might try to use the foodsaver later when it cools down just a bit but still I worry about it molding. If anyone has had good success with it I would love to hear as well!! I have bannana bread waiting to be sent and he keeps buggin me for it :-(

    I've heard that muffins and bread get pretty scary looking by the time they make it over there -- wait until winter.
    Keep on keeping on.

    I send bread wrapped in plastic wrap, inside a Ziploc. Everything is still tasty when it arrives.

    i've sent brownies twice and they lasted and turned out great. one time the package even took a month and a half to get to him. i usually put them on a plate, wrap aluminum foil and put in a gallon zip lock bag. hopefully they'll still hold up for the summer. ill probably send them until he tells me not to because of the heat. so we'll see how the next couple go.

    My first batch of goodies should be there shortly. I vacuum sealed some cupcakes and brownies. I hope they made it without molding. The cupcakes I retained here in Houston, not vacuum sealed, but covered, molded by Day 5, so now I'm nervous. I don't normally have on my AC, but it doesn't get nearly as hot in here as it would in transit. I'll try to remember to update when he gets them.

    Ok I forgot, nestle has a website that has some recipes that they have tested are termed "desert safe". Go to their website (http://www.verybestbaking.com/) and type in desert safe in the search. Im making the butterscotch ones for DBs next package and going to try the other ones with reeses because he isnt much of a chocolate fan :-)

    Ok, the cupcakes didn't make it. He said they looked fine when the bag was sealed, but they smelled funny as soon as he opened the bag and were obviously molded when he pulled one out.

    However, the brownies were the "best fucking brownies ever"!

    He just had a bunch of stuff shipped to me from Amazon. Once it gets here, I'll make a couple batches of different types of brownies and ship it all off.
