Our red velvet cake is a chocolate flavoured sponge cake with a distinctive red colour. It will keep in good condition for at least five weeks. It also freezes and defrosts very well, with some customers preferring to work on the bases semi-frozen, particularly when sculpting three dimensional novelty cakes. Order samples online here!
Our red velvet cake recipe is DAIRY FREE - however, it is made in a bakery where milk is used, so is not suitable for those with serious allergies.
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!
