Where does the original Grandma's Fruitcake recipe come from?
In 1917, two brothers went searching for a way to keep bakers busy during summer months. They needed something special - prepared in summer, and sold during the winter. Finally their search ended. They came across their grandma's recipe for an exceptional fruit and nut dessert cake. The cake required gentle mellowing to achieve perfection. Today, that delicacy is known as Grandma's Bake Shoppe® Fruit and Nut Dessert Cake. And what was once just a small bakery is today Beatrice Bakery Co.®, creators of the perfect recipe for living the sweet life.
How should I serve and store my cake?
To ensure you experince the best dessert cake we have to offer, we recommend refrigerating your dessert cake for 24-48 hours before slicing and serving. Because our cakes are perishable, once they have been opened, rewrap in cellophane for lasting freshness.
