Serving suggestions

  • Slice and serve wheat cake as it is with milk, tea or coffee. You can also enjoy it as a sweet snack.
  • Or you can spread your favorite frosting (chocolate, whipped cream, buttercream) on the cake. Allow the frosting to set by refrigerating the cake. Later slice and serve.


  • First, transfer the cooled cake to a box. In cooler climates, the cake can be kept at room temperature for 1 to 2 days.
  • In warmer or hotter climates, refrigerate the cake immediately. This cake stays good for about a week in the fridge.
