How do I transport cake and cupcake boxes?
You are carrying precious cargo – carry with CAUTION.
When carrying cake and cupcake boxes, please use both hands and carry on both “sides” of the box.
Keep the box leveled.
If you carry the cupcake box on the bottom/middle, you risk tipping the cupcakes out of the inserts on the inside.
When transporting the box in your car, place them on the most level area. Keep them secure and make sure they don’t have room to slide around.
Do NOT stack the boxes.
I’ve picked up a cake/cupcakes, how do I store them?
How do I store my cake/cupcakes?
All cakes and cupcakes preferably should be stored in the fridge in the box they came in or an airtight container.
During cooler months, you can keep them in a cold room or on the counter (if your house is kept pretty cool). During warmer months, it’s highly recommended they are kept in the fridge - take them out and let them come to room temperature before consuming.
How do I know when the cake is ready to be eaten?
Cake and cupcakes tastes best when served at room temperature.
How do I know when it’s at room temperature?
A good rule is to poke the cake with your finger. If the frosting is soft when you poke it, it is ready to be served. (Winter - Take it out approximately 30 minutes before you plan to serve it. Summer - take it out 30 mins prior to serving, but keep an eye on it.)
Can I freeze a cake or cupcakes?
If you’d like to freeze a cake/cupcake, place it in the freezer until it’s frozen. Then take it out, wrap it up and place it in an airtight container. It can last a couple months in the freezer. Thaw completely before consuming.
