ALLERGENS, STORAGE & USAGE
Our products are made in our factory where nuts and seeds are used. Even if the products do not have nuts or seeds in them they may contain traces. Some cakes may also contain wheat, gluten, egg, milk, soya or sulphates.
Storage: Please store cakes out of direct sunlight, preferably in a cool dark airtight tin but not in the fridge! Cut cakes should be wrapped in cling film.
Cutting: Cakes are best cut with a clean warm, wet sharp knife. We use a sharp carving knife which is unserrated.
