Drakes Cakes Frequently Asked Questions FAQs

These questions come from our clients that ask some really good questions.

Why is my shipping  so high?

Our shipping reflects weight of your order plus the box size and we use Priority Mail (2-3day) Service. We charge handling fees between $4-$8.00 depending upon the size of the orders (this handling fee also includes packaging fees and the cost for the box) the rest of the pricing is PRIORITY Shipping Service (2 day sometime 3 day depending upon where your located from the Main Post office).

What does the date represent on the box?

The date on the box is just a Best by date that the plant puts on when they make the Drakes Cake product. It does not mean it is not eatable or goes bad. It is a date that has to be put on as per the FDA. You can eat the cakes well after that date. Most people we know put their cakes into the refrigerator so it will last up to 6 months and in the deep freezer so it lasts as long as a year.

Can you Freeze Yodels?

Yes you can freeze yodels, Ring Dings, Funny Bones for a long time then take them out of the freezer eat them that way or put them in the refrigerator and let them thaw out for a bit then enjoy them.

You can also refrigerate the Yankee Doodles, Swiss Rolls, coffee cakes and the Devil Dogs  to last a very long time as well.
