Does anyone know whether it would be safe to ship the muffins when take two days for them arrive at their destination. Do you think with cream cheese baked in muffins?

We substituted low fat cream cheese and used splenda baking sugar in place of the regular to cut down on carbs. The muffins came out awesome.
