Looking After Your Cake

To ensure your cake is eaten at its best please observe the following guidelines:

All cakes should be eaten by the best before date.
Cakes should be stored in a cool area, off the floor, away from strong odours and in the box supplied.
When cutting cakes all non-edible items should be removed, we recommend that cakes are cut from the bottom, using the attached cutting chart will ensure maximum portions from your cake.
Once cake has been cut, cover all cut surfaces with cling film.
Should you wish to keep any decorations; models or sugar flowers etc. store in a dry area away from direct heat or moisture, do not store in an airtight container, if storing in a cardboard box, a sachet of silca gel will help to prevent moisture damage.
