Cake Storage FAQ

Got questions on how to store your cake?

 

HOW DO I STORE MY CAKE?

All our cakes are highly fragile and perishable items as we do not use preservatives. While they should keep well up to 5 days they will need to be stored in a cool, dark and dry space, out of direct sunlight and OUT of the fridge unless in adverse and extreme atmospheric conditions. We recommend storing it in as air tight of a space as possible, or wrapping the box in cling film.

 

HOW LONG WILL MY CAKE KEEP FOR?

We generally say 5 days. Some components of the cake however will not necessarily keep as fresh - for example, the doughnuts will only keep fresh tasting for a few days. We think that the cake tastes best in the first few days after delivery. 

 

I'VE STORED MY CAKE IN COLD PLACE, WHAT DO I DO? 

If you've had to keep the cake out of sight in a quite a cool place, like a garage in the winter. We strongly recommend you let the cake come to room temperature before eating. This take about 2 hours. 

 

I'VE COLLECTED MY CAKE, HOW DO I BRING IT HOME?

For larger cakes, we recommend home delivery as they can be very heavy. For smaller cakes, we have found carrying the cake in it's original box the safest way with both hands. Travelling by public transport can make this difficult, therefore you can use a bag. You just need to very careful when you put the cake in and out of the bag. It's best to open the bag up, crunch it's sides down and then place the cake carefully in and repeat the process when taking the cake out. Try avoid putting your hands in the bag when the bag is fully extended. When you carry the bag, try not to bring the handles together by putting your arm through the handles. This will stop pressure being exerted on the sides of the box.
