Whether you have escaped for the weekend to Little Italy in New York, or want to bring a friend or family member an treat from their favorite home bakery, bringing cannolis on the plane can be a tricky proposition. As of 2011, the official TSA states that items such as peanut butter, cheeses and spreads should be placed in your checked baggage. However, you can bring cakes and pies through security, but they might be subject to additional screening. Since a cannoli is a pastry with a spread substance made of cheese in the center, it is probably best to check it in your luggage.
Things You'll Need
- Large airtight container
- Smaller airtight container
- 2 ice packs
Place the cannolis inside your smaller sealable container. Cannolis come in different sizes, the size of the container will need to vary based on the size of the pastry and quantity with which you are traveling. The container should be made of a hard plastic or rubber plastic combination.
Place the smaller container inside of the large container. The large container needs to be big enough to hold your ice packs around your cannolis.
Place the ice packs on either side of the cannolis and seal the lid on the larger container.
Pack the container in the middle of your clothing if you are using a soft-shell suitcase. If you are using a hard-shell suitcase the containers should stay protected without any additional padding.
