Caring for your Gelato

Transporting and caring for your Gelato/Gelato Cake

All Gelato and Gelato Cakes must be stored in a freezer at a minimum of -18ºC.

Recommended safe travel time for our Gelato (including cakes) is approximately 35 minutes from our factory to your freezer depending upon the temperature conditions outside. Using an esky, styrofoam box or a cooler bag with ice bricks or dry ice can extend the safe travel time, however it just really depends upon how hot a day it is. Best advice is to get straight to a freezer after collecting your gelato - once gelato or sorbets have thawed they cannot be refrozen!

Serving your cake

To achieve the optimum temperature in order to cut, serve and devour a gelato cake it must be placed in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes prior to serving (providing the cake has been kept at -18ºC for a minimum of 3 hours). This will allow the cake to soften evenly throughout. If the cake isn't quite as frozen, you can leave it to rest out of the fridge for about 5-10 minutes before serving.

Tips for cutting... Use a large sharp knife and dip it in hot water between each cut. Be sure to wipe excess water off the blade each time so you don't form ice crystals on the edges of the cake.
