What to do once you have collected your cake?
All our cakes come in very tall boxes so please allow room in fridge. All cakes & treats MUST be stored in fridge until you're ready to serve. We will always advise upon collection how to store etc.
Cutting/Serving SPONGE CAKES
- For sponge cakes we suggest removing from fridge approx ONE hour before serving to allow to come to room temperate.
- Remove any decorations that are inedible, ie. fresh flowers, Happy Birthday Topper etc. Using a large plate and a chopping board, place it close to the side of the cake. Using a sharp knife, cut straight down as per video on this page, cut again in the opposite direction to create 'party slices'.
Cutting/Serving BELGIAN CHOCOLATE BISCUIT CAKE
- Chocolate Biscuit is harder to cut so we would suggest removing from fridge approx TWO hours before servings. Remove any decorations that are inedible, ie. fresh flowers, Happy Birthday Topper etc.
- Slightly tougher to cut! Using a sturdy knife, place in hot water for a few minutes or run under a hot tap, wipe excess water off and cut! Allow your cake to come to room temperature before cutting.
Important things to note:
Weather plays an important factor so if its a VERY hot day we would suggest if you want to take pictures remove cake from fridge take pictures then place back in. We do not suggest leaving on display in sun IT WILL MELT and attract wasps!
How to store left over cake:
Wrap any extra slices in clingfilm or foil to preserve the freshness & return to the box provided. Sponge cake is best eaten within 48/72 hours of delivery, BUT can also be frozen once wrapped in cling film and placed in an airtight container. Chocolate biscuit cake will last up to two weeks if wrapped in cling film or placed in an airtight container.
