Product Information

Freshly Baked Products

At Melissa Flaherty Cakes, all our cakes, cookies and desserts are freshly baked and crafted by hand.  As such, slight variations from the original website image may occur.


When collecting cakes, please carry your purchase with care. Bags and boxes must be held upright and level at all times to avoid decorations from falling off a cake or a cupcake from toppling over. We at Melissa Flaherty Cakes cannot be held liable for damaged items once they have been handed over to the customer. 

After leaving the premises, please transfer your fresh cakes into the fridge as soon as possible and keep them away from direct sunlight and heat sources. If transporting by car, place them onto a level, non-slip surface and avoid bumpy roads. For more information please see our Terms and Conditions of sale.

Storage & Shelf life

Unless stated otherwise, our cakes and cupcakes should be stored in the fridge and have the following shelf life from the day of purchase: 

  • Cupcakes: up to 3 days (Refrigerated) 
  • Layer Cakes: up to 4 days (Refrigerated) 
  • Iced Cookies & Confectionery: See packaging label 

For maximum taste and a soft moist texture we recommend that all our cakes should be enjoyed at room temperature and on the day of purchase. Remove cupcakes from the fridge 30 minutes before consumption, and layer cakes 1 to 2 hours in advance.

All our products are made in a kitchen that handles NUTS, GLUTEN (WHEAT), DAIRY, EGG, & SOYA (a more detailed list of allergens can be found in the description of each product page on our online shop). Please view our Dietary and Allergen Information page here.
