    First I must say today is my first day on the Baking forum... seems like just what I need to interact with other bakers and ask questions.

    I own a new bakery and have an idea for Baking with kids where I ship the pre-measured ingredients with kid friendly instructions, colorful packaging etc...
    Since it's in the planning, trial stage, Im looking for the best way to ship safely & inexpensively.
    Thinking of drying the vanilla extract in the sugar, buying 8oz Daisy cream cheese packets, using powdered eggs, putting the salt & baking powder in the flour... BUT
    ANY IDEAS HOW TO SHIP BUTTER? Is there a dried substitute or do I just say butter not included? :)
    Ideas & opinions please

    Hello and welcome to the forum. you should look at how subscription baking kits are being marketed and shipped now. When you say you own a new bakery I assume you have a retail/wholesale store outside your home. If its an in home kitchen bakery, it is illegal to sell and ship food products made in a home kitchen.

    Welcome to the forum! :) The only powdered fat I know of is cocoa butter - I have some at home but it's pretty expensive, and I've never used it in baking. Plus it melts when it gets warm, so may not be suitable. I'd go with fat not included, and maybe develop a recipe that either uses an easy to measure amount of butter, or oil.
