What’s the best way to transport my cake? +

Please remember cakes are a beautiful, delicate piece of art!

Your cake will leave our store in a secure box to ensure as little movement as possible during transport. We recommend placing your cake either in the passenger footwell, or in the car boot as these are both flat, even surfaces – and crank the aircon! Like butter, cakes can soften quickly when exposed to heat or direct sunlight, so please keep them as cool as possible for their journey to your event.

How long will my cake last? +

Your beautiful cake will stay fresh up to 5 days from the pick up or delivery date. Please see below for storing tips!

How should I store my cake before the party? +

We recommend popping your cake straight into the fridge when you get to your event or home. Preferably in the box to avoid any bumps from
rogue jars, but if it’s a little too bulky, you can take it out of the box and
find a nice safe shelf for it. This is particularly important in the warmer months and will prevent any potential melting moments!

However, please remember to remove your cake from the fridge
2-4 hours before you intend to cut and serve it, to give the buttercream and cake plenty of time to come to room temperature. If it’s a super hot day, more towards 2 hours, and in the midst of winter, at least 4!
