How can I make a donation request for my non-profit organization?
Unfortunately we will be unable to fulfill your donation requests until July 2014. This is due to the fact that we have maxed out our donation budget. Our donation request policy is that you please mail or email your donation request letter to us. All donation requests must be submitted in writing a minimum of six weeks prior to the charitable event (include the non-profit ID number). Due to the abundance of letters we receive, we are unable to grant all requests.
How do I care for/serve my cakes, cupcakes, and treats?
The following is a list of product care information:
- French Macarons: French macarons should refrigerated in an airtight container, but eaten at room temperature. Bring them out for about 15 minutes so they can come to room temperature before serving. Macarons should be eaten within 3-4 days.
- Cake Cutting Guide and Cake Care Instructions
- Cupcakes: Our cupcakes are baked fresh daily. They should be kept out at room temperature. Our frosting is a very light whipped buttercream; it can start to melt if left in warm temperatures. We recommend eating our cupcakes within a day or two.
- All of our cakes, cupcakes, and treat are best enjoyed the same day. Buttercream cakes should be refrigerated and then removed to come to room temperature at least 45 minutes before serving. Cupcakes and cookies may be kept at room temperature.
