    STOVE-TOP HEATING: Recommended

    3. Carefully remove package and let rest for 3-4 minutes.

    CAUTION: Beware of escaping steam when opening the package.



    1. Place thawed package flat side down on a microwaveable plate.

    • Cakes can be stored in original packaging in the freezer for up to 6 months.
    • Cakes can be stored in the fridge out of the protective package for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
    • Want to save some for later?  You can portion your cake by packing it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months.


    THAW & SERVE: Cheesecake is best served at room temperature.  

    1. To thaw, remove from plastic wrap and defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
    2. Make slicing easier by running your knife under very hot water before using. Wipe the warm blade with a towel and immediately slice the cake. This will help prevent the knife from sticking. After every cut, repeat as needed and wipe off the knife for a more pristine slice.
