Product Cutting & Handling Information
All of The Original Cakerie’s desserts are sold frozen, primarily in a versatile, cost-effective rectangular format. This allows products to be cut into squares, rectangles, wedges or any number of other options to fit your desired plating needs, price point and customer requests.
The Original Cakerie’s products are either pre-cut or uncut and are designed to be cut frozen. For best results, The Original Cakerie recommends cutting the amount of frozen product needed to the desired portion size(s) and then placing the remaining cake back in the freezer. For optimum freshness, return the unneeded frozen product to the freezer immediately. While every operation’s needs and requirements are unique, the focus for optimal product handling should be to minimize freezer-to-consumer time.
For easier cutting, The Original Cakerie recommends allowing the product to temper for 10-15 minutes before cutting. You can find a handy cutting guide printed on product cases.
All of The Original Cakerie’s products have a homemade taste and are made with fresh, high-quality ingredients such as real eggs, fresh cream, fruit and other natural ingredients and flavors that require attention to shelf life.
In general, The Original Cakerie’s products will last 9-12 months frozen. Refrigerated, it’s recommended to serve product in 3-5 days. If non-refrigerated, thaw and serve product within 3 days for most bars, brownies and some cakes; within 4 hours for all other products. See individual product information for specific shelf life, handling and serving recommendations.
