Dairy Queen Cake Serving Instructions
Here are a few tips about how to best serve an ice cream cake:
Don’t forget to thaw! Prior to serving, thaw the cake 30 minutes in the refrigerator or 15 minutes on the counter. This will ensure the cake is at just the right temperature and consistency.
- Use a large, sharp knife to cut the cake. You can run the knife under hot water to make cutting through the frozen cake easier.
- Wipe the knife clean between cuts to make cleaner slices.
- It can help to re-dip the knife in warm water after every few slices. This will ensure that each slice looks its very best when it’s served.
- A useful trick: for the first cut you can use two knives at the same time to cut the first slice so that rest can go easily.
- The serving size will depend on the size of the cake you have. Check the packaging or receipt for specific serving size information.
- If you have any leftovers, promptly return them to the freezer to prevent melting.
- Ensure that the cake is stored in an airtight container or is well wrapped to avoid freezer burn.
- Remember to keep the cake out of direct sunlight during the party. The last thing you want on this special day is a melted mess!
- The cake should be stored in the freezer if not being consumed immediately.
- Consume the leftover cake within a reasonable time frame to enjoy it at its best quality.
- Make sure to check the ingredients list on the packaging for any allergens, and inform your guests accordingly.
