What is the shelf life of the cakes?
Our pound cakes are made with a natural preservative that makes them stay fresh at room temperature for 10-14 days. Place in refrigerator and keep tightly wrapped for lasting freshness. We recommend that you freeze the cakes if you are not planning to eat them within 2 weeks. To freeze your pound cake, leave it in its plastic wrap or original packaging and place it in a freezer bag. It can remain frozen 6 months to a year. To defrost your cake, leave at room temperature for 2-4 hours (depending on size).
