Next month I'm traveling overseas from the US for the first time. What's the best way of packing the foods and beverages that friends have asked me to bring for them?

I'm visiting friends in the London area next month, one of whom is putting me up for the week that I'll be there. Two friends have requested that I bring stuff that they miss from the US - a giant box of Twinkies, and a particular kind of red wine.
I've got three bottles of the wine and have easy access to a monster load of Twinkies, but I'm not sure how to pack them. I know I won't be able to bring the wine in my carry-on, as it's a liquid and I could potentially use it to stain people's clothes on the plane. I've heard from different sources that I can carry the Twinkies in a carry-on, or that I can't. I should mention that I'm one of those lucky people whose bags always get searched and who generally gets pulled out of the security line for "random" enhanced screening.
What is the best way to pack wine bottles and snack cakes so that they make it to London intact and not confiscated?
