HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS

To many, the very idea of an exceptional quality frozen gâteaux with a 12-month shelf life is astonishing! Since 1997, we have been perfecting the art of sealed-in freshness through our unique fresh-to-frozen process. This means you can store your gâteaux frozen for long periods and defrost at your convenience to its original and exceptional hand-made state. The retained flavour and quality never ceases to amaze. Follow our guidelines and you will be guaranteed an indulgent experience with every mouthful!
