Frequently Asked questions

1.  How long will my baked item taste fresh? 

Although all of our products are the freshest on the day you receive them, my products each have a different shelf life. 

·      Firecracker Burst Cookies - 10 days 

·      Cookie Cakes - 3 days

·      Cupcakes - 3 days

If you need your item for a Tuesday, an option would be to pick up on Friday and place your baked item in your freezer.  See next answer for more info.

 2.  How should I store my desserts? 

Firecracker Burst Cookies can be stored on the counter or in the refrigerator sealed up.  Cupcakes and cookie cakes should be stored on the counter sealed up.  Do not refrigerate cupcakes or cookie cakes, it will dry them out. 

 All products can be frozen in original packaging and taken out to enjoy at a later date.  They thaw best sitting on your counter.  I recommend taking them out of the freezer 4-6 hours before you would like to enjoy them.

 3. What is the best way to get the cellophane off of my platter? 

The easiest way to open the platter without crushing the cookies is to cut the cello wrap right around the top edge of the platter.  The cello wrap is on tight to ensure freshness!

 4. I have food allergies.  Does Firecracker Bakery make anything that is wheat, nut or dairy free?

We do not bake in an allergen free environment.  All of our products are baked in a facility where wheat, dairy and nuts are present.  However, my products do not contain any tree nuts or peanuts.  They do contain dairy and wheat.
