I wonder if a cupcake could bake very very slowly using those
handwarmers you can buy in a drugstore? Or for skiing?  They don't get
very hot. But maybe they could be rigged up to break when a box is
opened, and then the cooking device would open up based on a timer.

Or, ship a cupcake positioned inside an EZ-bake oven, maybe just by
being completely encased in foil, with a power source connected to the
EZ Bake Oven, with a switch that is turned on by opening the box.  The
sugary topping could be ... uh that is where I lose it.  Sugary topping.
