STORAGE & HANDLING

1. What is the proper handling for cakes and cupcakes?

  • For those picking up their orders, we recommend that you place the items on a level surface.  Should you be placing these on the car seat, kindly place stacked newspapers or magazines underneath to level the area.  We do not suggest putting the cakes and cupcakes inside the car trunk as the heat will affect the quality and will also melt the icing.

2. Should we store the cakes and cupcakes inside the refrigerator?

  • No you should not.  Storing a fondant covered cake inside the refrigerator will moisten the fondant.  Placing the cake or cupcakes in a room temperature area with no direct sunlight will do.  After your event, you may refrigerate to lengthen the shelf life.

OTHERS

1. Is there a fee for renting a cupcake tower?

  • We collect a PhP 800 rental fee and a PhP 2,500 deposit.  The latter is refundable.  Any rented item must be returned in good condition no later than two (2) days after the event.  In the event that the item cannot be returned within the said period and the cupcake tower is not in good condition, the deposit will not be refunded.
