    What is the best way to ship a cheesecake overnight? I know this can be done but I am afraid to try it; my thought was to first put cake in a cardboard pastry box and then inside another box filled with packaging filler. HELP!!

    Cheesecake freezes pretty well. I would suggest freezing it, and keeping it frozen during shipping, with dry ice and styrofoam. Make sure there's a thick enough barrier between the ice and the cake, to prevent freezer burn.
