Our Death By Chocolate Cake bases are moister, darker and even more chocolatey than our standard chocolate genoese sponges. Ideal for luxury chocolate wedding and celebration cakes, they keep in good condition for up to five weeks. Order samples online here!
Square or rectangular cakes are all sold as a pair of two layers in a box. Each layer is approx 1.25" deep, so two layers together will make a standard depth celebration cake. Round cakes are baked individually in one layer, approx 2.5" deep, and are ready for you to split into 2 or 3 layers as you wish. Round cakes are baked in a tin of the size advertised - slight shrinkage may occur during baking.
Shelf life is calculated from the day of baking, not the day of delivery. We recommend that you order sponges to arrive about a week before the celebration, then decorate them in the week leading up to the wedding or party. This ensures the cake is in prime condition when served, and ought to give plenty of time to enjoy the left-overs! The shelf life given is for the undecorated cake base in the orginal packaging - once decorated, the life will depend on the type of fillings and icings used. Our sponge cakes all freeze very well if you do need to extend the shelf life. Why not keep a spare cake in the freezer ready for those last minute requests!
