I would like to sell my gumpaste flowers and other sugar creations like bows, baby shoes etc. to bakeries, cake decorators etc and was wondering how best to package the flowers and other creations for sale.

What should I store them in? What should be placed with it to prevent breakage etc? I also saw somewhere online that bubble wraps are used by some persons really cant remember where. Where can you get bubble wrap to buy?

Bubble wrap is available at any store like Wal-Mart, also at shipping stores like UPS or FedEx. Of course, I think Wal-Mart would be less expensive, but I really don't know.

If you wish to ship your creations they need to not move during shipment. Bubble wrap is great but do you want it to touch your creation? I guess is all depends on your creation.

I have shipped flowers and have adhered them to a cake board with royal icing and then shrink wrapped them.
Whatever you decide, have fun and good luck.

Clarification: shrink wrapped before bubble-wrapping.
