Cake and Dessert Instructions
So, you received a cake or desserts from our bakery, but your party isn't until later?
How do you store them in the meantime?
What do you do with them until your event?
Eat them all. Eat them now!
Just kidding. Don’t do that.
Follow these instructions for easy cake and dessert storage options.
Your cake is chilled prior to pick-up or delivery. We recommend allowing your cake some time, at least one hour, to bring the cake to room temperature before cutting. If properly wrapped in plastic or in an airtight container and placed in a refrigerator, leftovers may be stored for up to 5 days. Let’s be honest though, what leftovers?
Transporting your cake
First step, take a deep breath. You can do this. Transporting a cake does require a bit of preparation, but it’s not as scary as it sounds.
When transporting your cake, we recommend placing the cake box on a flat surface, with little to no direct sunlight, and active air conditioning.
Try to keep your windows up, especially during warmer days above 85 degrees, and refrain from using aerosol sprays and smoking.
Remember, you are driving with precious cargo. So, no Speed Racer. No tailgating and no slamming on your brakes. Your cake will still taste amazing no matter what, but we can’t promise it’ll look great after you’ve scraped it up out of the floorboard.
There’s no need to refrigerate these little guys. Just make sure to keep them in a cool place, out of direct sunlight, and out of reach of any “taste testers” or toddlers.
Cake Pops & Cake Truffles
Cake pops and cake truffles can be refrigerated for up to 3 weeks if you want. We aren’t sure how anyone can make them last more than 3 minutes. But you do you!
They’ll also do fine if you keep them in a cool place at your event, out of direct sunlight when serving.
Cookies and Brownies
Cookies and brownies can be left out and covered until they’re ready to be served.
They’re best eaten within 1 day after the event. Pro tip – Pop them in the microwave for about 10 seconds before you eat them.
Dessert Cups and Cake Jars
If you ordered Dessert Cups, we’ll deliver them in a box. You can leave them all in there until they’re ready to be set up and served. Dessert Cups are best eaten within 2 days after the event.
Cake Jars are an easy one. They come in their own storage jar. So, you don’t have to do anything with them, except try not to eat them before your event. These little jars of heaven will keep for up to 7 days refrigerated. Bring them to room temperature before enjoying.
Pastries can be refrigerated before your event, but it’s not required.
Afterward, refrigerate anything with a cream (cream puffs, mini tarts). Cannolis are best eaten within 24 hours (the shell may get soggy from the filling if you wait longer).
Cheesecake can be refrigerated for up to 7 days - remove any fresh fruit. Fruit mashes are fine.
