The freshness of these products can be seen in the texture of each product and its aroma. So if you are going to buy a soft bread will be appreciated in the fluffy and soft that sits to the touch (tweezers) and the aroma that expels. If it is a baguete bread, it will be crispy not soft or hard. Toast should not be hard but crispy. The products in puff pastry should be crispy and fluffy. And so it is with each product, you must know, to identify its freshness.
In cakes or turnovers, it is more difficult, especially if they have creams, sideburns and decorations. Because there are times we see them so beautiful… But they taste so bad!
For this reason we must buy these products in stores of confidence, where we guarantee freshness and flavor.

In many establishments specializing in these products, at the moment of the purchase they inform you how to preserve it, or it is written in the packaging especially for the cakes and desserts.
