What’s the best way to store my cake?

  • Cakes can last up to 7 days if refrigerated…if they are not eaten sooner!
  • They will last at least four (4) months or more if frozen immediately after receipt. Hint: remove the cellophane wrapper then wrap in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag before freezing.

What are your serving suggestions?

  • For guests or a party, you can cut the loaves lengthwise first and then cut across. This will insure that everyone gets to taste each of our delicious pound cakes.
  • If you refrigerate or freeze our cake, we suggest you let them naturally come up to room temperature before serving. If you just cannot wait (this is NOT recommended for pound cakes with iced toppings), you can place the refrigerated cake in the microwave with the setting on DEFROST for 10 seconds. If the cake is frozen, try 20 seconds on the same DEFROST setting. Repeat if it is still not thawed using the DEFROST setting only for 10 seconds at a time. Be patient…it is worth the wait!

What’s the best way to serve an Upside Down cake?

These delicious pound cakes are some of The Cake Pound’s show stoppers!  In order to enjoy the beautiful visual look of these cakes it is necessary to turn them upside down before serving.

We suggest you do the following:

  • Due to the butter content of the pound cake it should be served at room temperature. If the cake has been refrigerated or frozen bring back to room temperature then:
  • Place the cake on a plate paper side down in your microwave using the DEFROST SETTING ONLY for about 5 -10 seconds. This will slightly warm the topping at the bottom of the cake.
  • Carefully remove the cake from the microwave and turn it upside down on a serving plate. Carefully peel off the white paper liner from the cake.  It should remove easily.

Enjoy the Design, Smell and Taste of your pound cake!
