You're right about the oil - and it would also be safer, food-wise, than butter for a longer period. As to shipping - well, he's 14 and is the type who is as happy with something very ordinary as with something very fancy - so for now, I'll save my money. Thank you for the suggestions!

I am learning alot from you all - a cake high in sugar will increase its shelf life. And thanks for the idea of the friendship bread - sounds like another way to keep up with old friends.

I like the alcohol-infusion idea particularly, but maybe not for Sam. Thanks!

I like the idea of sending the components. It probably made it a tastier affair when you had to finish it yourself. Your mom was so thoughtful! Thanks!

Thank you everyone for your excellent and helpful suggestions. I ended up making decorated sugar cookies (I used a wedding cake cookie cutter and went crazy with the icing) and they arrived as funky and as tasty as they had left. I really enjoyed all of your ideas, and appreciated that you took the time to contribute your thoughtful replies.

I'd like to send a fun and yummy birthday cake by mail to my 14 year old boy. Regular mail takes about 7 to 10 days to arrive where he lives. I'm in Vancouver, he's in Quebec. Anyone have suggestions as to what would be a good birthday cake recipie that will survive the trip and the length of time it takes to get there?
