What’s the best way to transport my cake once I collect it?
Keep the cake box flat, the best place is always in your car boot and transport home or to your venue as soon as possible. Avoid putting it on a seat or in some-one’s lap, as it can cause the cake to slope during transportation. We will help you to your car with and help you place it securely in your car book. Unfortunately, we cannot be liable for any damage to the cake once it has left our bakery.
Do you deliver?
Yes, we now offer a delivery service up to 15km of our premises in Ranelagh, Dublin 6. Free local delivery to Dartry, Ranelagh and Rathmines.
How do I store my cake if I collect it the day before my party?
For butter cream cakes:
Leave the cake in the box and store in the fridge. Remove it from the fridge approximately 3 hours before you intend to serve, to allow the butter cream to reach room temperature.
For cakes with an edible image:
The edible image on cakes can get too moist when left in the fridge. If possible keep your cake in a cold room until you intend to serve. If you need to keep it in the fridge, insulate the inside of the box with tin foil, wrap the outside of the box in cling-film and and place in the fridge. Remove the cake from the fridge three hours before you intend to serve.
Storage of Left-Overs:
After you have cut and served your cake, should you have any left over, wrap it well in cling-film and tinfoil and store it in an air-tight container, in the fridge. A cake, even without preservatives can last up to 3 days depending on how well they are wrapped. Of course you can also freeze the left-over cake, but it does change the flavour.
Our kitchen contains a wide variety of ingredients, we therefore cannot guarantee that a trace amount of allergens i.e. nuts, gluten, diary, eggs and other commonly used ingredients will not be present in our bakes.
Edible Image Paper
Our edible image paper is free from: Gluten, Lactose, Nuts and Eggs. It is Kosher and Halal and suitable for vegans.
Do you make Vegan/Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Nut free?
For our dark chocolate giant breakable chocolate hearts we use Callebaut chocolate which is: Vegan, Gluten Free, Halal & OK Kosher Diary. We are moving towards using only Callebaut for our milk and white chocolate giant chocolate hearts, hot chocolate bombs, small chocolate hearts and chocolate Easter eggs.
Our cakes/cupcakes contain butter, wheat flour, eggs and we are unable to substitute these ingredients, our cakes may also contain nuts and are made in an environment that handles nuts and soya. We cannot guarantee that the cakes will not contain traces of these ingredients due to the nature of our production. We accept no liability for a customer suffering an allergic reaction from consuming our bakes.
If I have a nut-allergy, should I eat a bake from The Cake Lab Bakery?
The Cake Lab Bakery is NOT a nut-free bakery. For customers with severe nut allergies we would recommend you err on the side of caution and refrain from eating our bakes.
