Overwrapped trays store in the freezer until they are ready to use, eliminating waste and labor costs associated with baking desserts on-site, with thaw-and-serve convenience reducing serving time and providing a consistent and impressive presentation. In addition, because the cakes are meticulously hand-finished, minimal plate-scaping is required. Individual desserts are packaged 24 cakes to a case with 12 cakes per tray, and have a three-day refrigerated shelf life.
