All cakes from Smith Island Baking Co. are shipped in extra thick recyclable foam containers with sufficient coolant to assure they arrives in excellent condition within the max allowable transit time of 2 days (packages that include ice cream are shipped via overnight service only).
All orders are shipped signature release. This means Fedex will leave the package at the doorstep, front desk or gate associated with the shipping address without requiring a signature upon delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that the contents of the package are stored in a freezer promptly after delivery. FoodyDirect cannot be responsible for orders with incomplete or invalid addresses, or that are sent to recipients who are not available to store the contents of the order on the day of arrival. Fedex cannot deliver to a P.O. box.
Chocolate Fudge Frosted Cakes keep best when stored at room temperature. All other Smith Island Cakes should be refrigerated. Cakes should be kept in an air-tight container, such as a cake dome, and will maintain their freshness for 5 to 7 days.
Smith Island Cakes freeze wonderfully—if you have left over cake, wrap it well and freeze it. If you do not plan to serve your cake within the next day, we recommend freezing it until 12 hours before serving —simply freeze the cake in its original wrapping.
