Shipping frozen food?

Hi y'all

I am hoping to send my roommate some homemade cookies and cream ice cream from San Francisco to Orange County. Does anyone have any experience with shipping frozen foods?

So far, I understand that dry ice is pretty much a "must," and that I somehow need to get my hands on one of those handy styrofoam cooler boxes. Any ideas as to where I might find the latter?

Any overall advice as to how to do this in a cost-effective way?
