Storage & Serving

Handling and serving of cakes

a) If your product has been delivered frozen then continue to store at
-18 deg C.  The “Best Before Date” on the label is the date which the product must be used if stored frozen.

b) If you product was delivered thawed or if you have thawed your product then store in a coolroom or refrigerated cabinet (2-4 Deg C) for 5 days from day of thawing.

Thawing Cakes
Depending on how cold your freezer and refrigerated display/coolroom is will depend on how long you need to allow the product to thaw.  As a general guide the product needs a minimum of 4 hours for thawing.

Stock Rotation
Rotation of stock is very important so always remember to put your new stock to the front of the cabinet (closest to the customer) and the older one towards the back (closest to where you serve from) so you serve the older stock first

Displaying your product
Depending on the style of your outlet and the style of your cabinet there are many ways to effectively display the cakes.  Use a white plate/platter or place directly on a cake board onto the glass. Arrange the cakes in a neat pattern.  If you keep your cakes for more than a day always change your plates and cover at the end of each shift. It is always a good idea to put “name tags” and/or product descriptions so your customer knows what each cake is (we are happy to provide these for you). Some displays may dry the product out depending on the velocity of the air flow and the humidity levels in the cabinet.  If this is the case then you may not get the full shelf life of the products.  You can try and place a bowl of water in the cabinet to increase the humidity

Serving/Plating cakes
To serve always use a cake lifter to lift the cakes and place in the middle of the plate. Decorate the plate with a suitable coulis/sauce/dust with cocoa or icing sugar Serve with a fork and napkin.
