Gag Gift Actually Sold – How to Ship?

Preface: Actually in need of some serious feedback here, and yes this is a real issue I'm trying to resolve, as troll as it may sound.

Backstory: I added a Spaghetti Christmas Ornament to Facebook Marketplace as a gag gift/fake item with no intention of it selling; basically it was just a funny post, figured I could use it to promote my page. It reached thousand of views within a few minutes, and then it sold, multiple of them.

So the problem I'm running into, is now I actually want to ship it so I get paid. Also I don't want to cancell everyones' orders, which would hurt my seller rating.

Item/Shipping info:

The item is being shipped through USPS. The item is perishable (food). USPS shipping rules state "perishable foods that are capable of easily decomposing or that cannot reach their destination without spoiling are nonmailable."

So my question is this, is there any way around this? Is there any way to actually ship this item? Can I just stick in my my tupperware container, put it in a nice box with some cushioning, slap the shipping label on it, and call it good?

Will I have to make a work around? The only thing I can think of is either replacing the cooked spaghetti with uncooked and then coloring the outside of the ornament or placing a piece of paper inside to match that of the image itself.

Any/all advice or tips offered would be appreciated.

Once again, thank you Reddit for being my go-to when I can't just Google my answer.
