Refrigeration Instructions: Please unwrap all plastic and foam upon receipt and store in a refrigerator. Refrigerated cakes can be enjoyed for 7-10 days.
Freezing Instructions: After removing the gel ice pack from the box, do not unwrap the cake from its packaging if you choose to freeze it upon receipt- simply put the cake directly into your freezer. After enjoying, if you would like to re-freeze any leftovers, wrap the remaining cake in plastic. Cakes can be frozen for up to 3 months. The gel ice pack provided is reusable.
Slicing Instructions: Using a hot, wet knife- slice the cake and pull the knife from the bottom of the cake, do not lift. Clean the knife of any residue, making sure to repeat this step between every slice. OR Using unflavored dental floss, pull a piece longer than the cake and wrap around your fingertips. Pull it straight down on both sides of the cheese cake and gently pull out from the bottom, unwrapping one end from your fingertips. Run the floss between your fingertips to remove any crumb pieces and repeat.
