If you add an assorted gift box into your cart, you will receive an assortment of our delicious flavours. However, if you would like to customise your order and specify flavours, please add each individual flavour into your cart.
The best way to store our cupcakes, cookies and slices is to keep them in an airtight container (or wrap the box in cling wrap) and store them at room temperature (about 20c). When stored correctly, they can last up to 2-3 days but it goes without saying that our baked goods are at their best, when consumed fresh on the day. Please be mindful that storing them in the fridge might dry out the cupcakes a little bit.
As soon as you receive our cake, place it straight into the fridge. We recommend that you take it out of the fridge for the cake to adjust to room temperature, between 30 minutes to an 1 hour (depending on your environment) before you intend to enjoy it. Please keep it out of the sun or it will melt. If you have left over, the best way to store our cakes is to keep them in an airtight container (or wrap the box in cling wrap) and store them in the fridge and consume within 3-5 days.
We take food allergies very seriously. We have strict protocols to ensure cross contamination does not occur during every stage of our baking process as well as how we store the ingredients. However, we do bake in the same space. Therefore, we do ask those who have severe allergic reactions to avoid or take caution when consuming our baked goods. When ordering, please ensure you inform us of any allergies or if you would like us to pack certain flavours separately. We are always happy to accommodate.
