Food safety – Storage of leftover cakes

We strive to bake our cakes as close to the celebration day as it possible.  We also don’t use any cake preservatives.  When I was in training as a cake decorator, I asked our teacher how we can preserve our cakes as people in this part of the world want to keep their cakes after the celebration, for weeks or even months if possible.  We were sternly warned not to use any so-called cake preservatives, to bake our cakes fresh and to inform the clients to consume within three days and store leftovers in the refrigerator.

I have gone a step further to advise all clients to store their leftover cakes in the FREEZER. The electricity supply in Nigeria is not constant so the fridge compartment may not be cool enough.  To avoid issues of clients complaining of spoilt cakes, I advise all clients to wrap all leftover cakes properly in plastic and/or foil and store in their freezers.

After a great party or dinner celebration, deciding what to do with a table full of leftovers may not be at the forefront of your mind, but it’s an important part of partying. It’s certainly a pity to waste good food, but letting leftovers linger without temperature control can be unsafe.
