How long does THE HONEYCAKE last for? – Minimum of 10 days for the best appearance and flavour.
How do I store THE HONEYCAKE? It’s best kept refrigerated (ideally in air-tight container)separate strong aroma food (meat, fish). It will easily last in a room temperature as well but avoid heat and direct sunlight. As the caramel melts when it gets too hot.
Is it best fresh? No, we recommend to have the cake sit at least 24 hours after baking so it has time to develop all the flavours and gets soft and moist.
Can I freeze it? Yes, you can treat it as a normal cake and would last for up to a year in freezer.
Can I take it overseas or interstate? Yes, we have had a lots of customers taking it all over Australia and overseas without any issues.
What is the best to take overseas? Our whole cake boxes are normal paper cake boxes designed just for short transport and therefore they are not the best for traveling. We recommend premium gift box as it has been especially designed for traveling and as a nice gift that comes in sturdy packaging and with a complimentary carry bag.
Can it last the flight? Yes, it will easily last any flight. Ideally take it on board with you so it does not get damaged in cargo area.
Can you post it? Yes, we can even organize express post (2 days delivery), however we can not guarantee the outcome as Australian Post does not provide services for fragile items, such as cakes. For more please info please call the office.
Can I have the recipe? Unfortunately not as it’s our chef’s secret, but it is something like this: Put a lots of hard work in a large bowl and mix well with plenty of love:-).
