Transporting Your Cake Safely:
- When collecting your cake please make sure you leave enough time so you are not in a rush. Cakes are delicate and need to be carried and transported with care.
- Always hold your cake from underneath the box and keep flat at all times, being carful not to push the sides of the box into the cake.
- When transporting in the car, the best place to transport the cake is flat in the boot of the car on a non-slip mat or surface. Make sure there is nothing that could fall on/into your cake during transit. Drive carefully making sure you drive very slowly over bumps, and around corners with no sudden breaking.
- Once you have collected your cake, it is your responsibility to transport your cake safely. We do not take any responsibility to damage caused to your cake during transit after it leaves the shop.
- Cakes need to be stored in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
- All cakes are best eaten within 3 days of collection. Keep all open sides covered with foil or clingfilm to keep fresh.
- Cakes can be frozen for up to 3 months. Defrost before eating.
- During the summer months, buttercream cakes with no fondant decoration can be stored in the fridge in the box. Keep in the box and bring back to room temp before serving. Fondant will sweat when kept in the fridge and brought back to room temperature so we advise against keeping fondant covered cakes in the fridge.
