Hey everyone! Have you heard of Buttertrade?
Sounds familiar doesn’t it?
Buttertrade is actually a great place where you can order and get cakes delivered to you fast, simple and affordable!
You literally visit their website, browse through their selection which features over 100 cakes from boutique bakeries (including some Halal options too!), make payment and arrange for the cakes to be delivered!
No fuss. No muss. Just cake! LOL
Tired of always having to spend so much time looking and hunting for that perfect cake for your party or event? Well, that’s where Buttertrade comes in and cuts out all the hassle. Just visit their site, browse and find the cake you like and leave the rest to Buttertrade.
After all, you’ve got other things to prepare for the event instead of wasting all that time hunting for a cake right?
They have even got some Halal options too including Sweetest Moments and also a place where we’ve enjoyed some pretty good Gelato too – Olivye Cafe!
We were honoured to have a special Olivye Cafe Gelato Cake sent over so we could experience the ease of using Buttertrade first-hand!
First impression and I am super impressed with how the Gelato cake was packed!
One of the big concerns with cakes (ESPECIALLY ICE-CREAM CAKES!!) is how it’s going to hold up if you’ll be consuming it only a little bit later. Firstly – you eliminate the problem about transporting the cake home because it’s delivered to you so it is super cooled when it arrives. Secondly – it’s packed super well!
Inside the packaging, the cake is packed inside a Styrofoam box with dry ice in there as well for good measure! Guaranteed that your Gelato cake is going be perfect even if you have to serve it later. You’re supposed to keep it in the fridge once you receive it but the fridge in the office was too small so I had to leave it on my table.
The ice-cream cake was still prefect and solid when I brought it home 3 hours later! Just remember to keep it cool!
And a little more on the ‘solid’ part later okay!
Beyond the packaging, you can see that this is actually a very handsome looking cake!
A nice thick layer of rich Buttercream coats the outside. Nice and simple design that is visually stunning and builds up anticipation for what lies within – Nutella Gelato!
Woo hoo! Look at that glorious Nutella Gelato!
Super decadent and rich flavour of the Nutella really shines through. If you’ve read our review of Olivye Gelato way back when, you’ll know that they take their Gelato really seriously and only the best quality ingredients are used which is why the flavour of the Gelato is super power.
Some of our favourite Gelato flavours at Olivye are fruit-based so it’s little wonder that they also have a Durian Gelato Cake offered on Buttertrade too! Totally worth it!
Now, about that ‘solid’ part we mentioned earlier…
A tip for everyone – leave the cake outside to ‘thaw’ a little before the time comes for serving. They do such a great job of keeping the Gelato cake cool that the Gelato itself is pretty solid! LOL
The reason it looks a bit messed up in the photo above is because I was trying to slice through the thick Gelato LOL
So remember to leave it out for awhile and run your knife under some hot water to heat it up and this will make slicing through the Gelato cake a little but easier. And we know you’ll be super excited to makan the cake but take your time okay LOL
