Frequently Asked Questions
Cake & Cupcake
Cakes and cupcakes at The Little Daisy Bake Shop are made fresh, never frozen, and we use real butter in our buttercream. That makes our treat delicious, but also requires a little TLC. Here are a few guidelines to help you enjoy our product at its best!
We recommend enjoying our treats the same day you purchase them. We bake our products daily and use fresh ingredients. Our treats may taste great after a few days, but they are best on the day you buy them.
Please transport cakes and cupcakes on a level, flat surface. We do not recommend putting cakes in strollers, in shopping bags on their sides or in the hands of small children to carry.
Please use air conditioning in your car if you are traveling a long distance. Please do not leave cakes and cupcakes in a hot car. The butter in the buttercream will turn all wicked witchy in the hot sun and melt.
Cupcakes should be enjoyed at room temperature. Please do not put cupcakes in the refrigerator. Cakes may be covered and put in the refrigerator, but should be brought to room temperature before eating. Both cakes and cupcakes freeze beautifully.
Cakes with cookie decorations and edible printing should NOT be refrigerated. The colored icing will run.
