FAQs

Q: Are they really handmade?

A: Yes they are lovingly handmade, right here in Acacia Ridge, a southern suburb of Brisbane, Australia.

Q: Where can I buy your cakes?

A: We are a wholesale bakery so our cakes are not available for sale from our Acacia Ridge kitchen. However, If you are a Brisane-based coffee shop, cafe or restaurant, please get in touch with us today for your personalised package. For pricing and to place orders, feel free to order here.

Q: Can I request a special order?

A: If you would like us to produce a particular product that is not listed, please feel free to reach and ask. We would love to hear from you! 

Q: How do I best care for my cakes?

A: The Scottish Baker’s cakes are hand made specialist products, we do not add any artificial additives to our cakes. They are made just the way you would make them at home with the same ingredients so we would just like to give you a few pointers on how to care for them and keep them tasting their best.

Please Do…

  • Cakes and traybakes need around 4 to 6 hours to thaw

  • Keep products in airtight container, or wrapped up well overnight

  • Cut frozen cakes with a hot knife and thawed cakes with a warm knife

  • Display round cakes under a dome if you can to keep them fresher longer

  • Place cakes at eye level on the counter if possible

 

Please Do Not…

  • Show them off uncovered; they will dry out

  • Put the cakes near a source of heat; they will quickly deteriorate

  • Place sponge based cakes in a chilled display unit as they will dry out

Q: What is the shelf life?

A: All our sponge cakes, cupcakes and muffins have a 12 month frozen shelf life and will keep fresh for a minimum of 3 days if treated correctly and some for much longer than this if you follow these few care rules. Our traybakes also have a 12 month frozen shelf life and will last for a minimum of 5 days if treated correctly, and again for longer if you follow the care rules. Please see individual boxes for specific shelf lifes.
