A: The king cake will maintain its freshness 2-3 days after receiving it. If you're planning on serving the cake 2-3 days later, don't open it up. Keep it out of direct sunlight, in a cool place. If you're wanting to keep it longer, we would suggest to put the king cake in the freezer upon delivery, and then take it out 3 hours before serving. It will thaw and will be ready to serve.
Q: Can I send the king cake to someone who lives in an apartment?
A: Yes, HOWEVER, UPS WILL NOT leave the king cake at the door if no one is home or no one answers the door of an apartment building or complex. UPS will leave a note on the door saying they attempted delivery and will be back again the next day to accomplish delivery. If this delivery was attempted on a Friday, UPS will come back that Monday to attempt delivery. You can call the UPS center and either pick up the king cake from them or they will attempt delivery again the next day. If someone you know lives in an apartment and you want to make sure they receive their cake, make absolutely sure someone will be there to accept delivery. Another suggestion would be to send the king cake to a business address.
