    Hi. You may want to post this question in the deployment area under care packages. Might get more of a response there. Just a thought.

    Hello OP, I merged your threads in the Care Packages forum for you. It's against TOS to post the same thread in multiple areas, but staff will be happy to move a thread if it needs to be in a different place. Thank you!

    Pies and Cakes in Jars

    The first thing to ask yourself when mailing baked goods is, "Would I leave that item on my counter at home for 10-14 days then eat it?" Pumpkin pie is usually refrigerated. I wouldn't do it. In general, many people have had good luck with cake-in-a-jar but others have reported spoilage. The last thing you want is to send moldy goodies! I write care package recipes and asked the consumer information site BestFoodFacts.org for food safety information. Dr. Londa Nwadike, the state extension consumer food safety specialist for Kansas State University gave this response:

    “ It is not safe to bake cake in a glass jar and then to close the jar with a canning lid! Research at Kansas State University (Aramouni et al, 1994) showed that heat-stable microorganisms can survive the baking process and multiply in breads baked in a jar during storage. Research at other universities with commonly available recipes for consumers has shown the same potential for dangerous products to result. You will see these products made commercially; however, additives, preservatives and processing controls not available for home recipes are used. Canning jar manufacturers also don’t endorse baking in their canning jars.”

    I have many other recipes that do work well even in the summer that I would be happy to share!

    When I was overseas my dad would send cookies and seal them in clean pringles cans. If the cookies are the same size as the tube there isn't a lot of movement (less crumbs) and they were still good by the time they got from Ohio to Greece to Spain. Just an idea
