Storing Desserts

Here are some dessert storage tips to help keep your sweets as fresh as possible for as long as possible.

Cakes:  We make real buttercream which means our frosting has butter in it, not shortening.  It does not need to be refrigerated if it will be eaten the same day or unless it is a hot day.  If refrigerating, we recommend pulling it out at least 2 hours prior to serving.  It will get hard in the fridge; butter does that when it gets cold.

If you have leftover cake, store it in an airtight container (fridge or counter, depending on weather) & it will last 4-5 days. Cakes can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
To freeze, pop it in the fridge or freezer to let the frosting get hard, wrap it in saran wrap, & then place in an airtight container.
If you do not have a container to fit the cake, wrap it in tin foil making sure it’s completely sealed.
DO NOT LEAVE IT IN THE BOX we provided…it will dry out.  Our boxes are not airtight & are merely for transportation purposes.

Cupcakes: Same story as cakes.

Cake Truffles: These can go in the fridge.  They are encased in delicious chocolate & rarely dry out.  They can last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.  You might prefer them at room temperature so leaving them out is just fine.  But move them into an airtight container either way.

Cookies: Do not refrigerate. You may freeze cookies in an airtight container for 2-3 months. If you are not eating cookies the same day, they need to be moved into an airtight container.  Hmm, there seems to be a theme here…

Please note: We make everything from scratch.  This means the consistency & density will be quite different from store bought desserts & box mixes.  You can absolutely freeze any item you get from us…in an airtight container.
