Dry Ice Info

This item will arrive within 2 days of shipping. Each package is shipped in Dry Ice, ensuring the contents will arrive cold and ready for storage in your freezer.

What is Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is another term for solid carbon dioxide. You know that carbon dioxide ("CO2") is the gas we exhale every time we breathe. When CO2 gas is compressed, it changes to CO2 solid.

Why do we use Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is very cold. In fact, its surface temperature is approximately -110°F, much colder than regular ice, which has a surface temperature of 32°F. Because Dry Ice is so cold, it is an excellent refrigerant to keep perishable food products cool until they arrive to you, the customer.

Why wasn't any Dry Ice remaining when my package arrived?

Dry Ice has special properties that are much different than regular ice. This is due to the chemical differences between water and CO2. Ice will melt to liquid and then evaporate as a gas. Dry Ice skips the liquid phase and changes from a solid directly to a gas. This change is called "sublimation." The dry ice used in the food products we offer usually lasts between 24 to 36 hours. Since we ship our products in 2 days, it is common for little or no dry ice to remain by the time you receive your package. However, your food will still be cold - ready to be put right in your freezer!

About Paula Deen

About Paula Deen

Who would ever think that a housewife from Albany, Georgia with no formal training in food would become one of the country’s most beloved celebrity cooks? Every day, hordes of fans from all over the country line up outside of Paula Deen’s restaurant, Lady & Sons, in Savannah, GA hoping to get a peek of the Food Network’s most approachable chef. This lively Southern woman with piercing blue eyes is proof that dreams can come true. With her best selling cookbooks, entertainment magazine, hit show Paula’s Home Cooking, and the launch of her new show Paula’s Party,it’s easy to see that there is no stopping this woman’s success.

Living with agoraphobia for 20 years and experiencing a crumbling marriage, Deen was left with two growing sons and no source of income. With no education and very little to fall back on, the then-42-year-old housewife reached deep into her Southern roots and drew inspiration from what she knew best – her kitchen stove. Her culinary career began in June of 1989 out of her kitchen with The Bag Lady, a home-based lunch delivery service in Savannah. The woman with the big dreams would whip up tuna fish sandwiches wrapped in Saran Wrap and have her two sons sell them to local businesses. Within two years, The Bag Lady grew too much for a home-based operation, and she eventually opened her first restaurant on Savannah’s Southside called The Lady. In 1996, after five successful years, Deen was ready for yet another challenge and launched her second restaurant The Lady & Sons,which to this day serves thousands of Savannah visitors, including celebrity clientele.

In 1997, Deen published her first cookbook, The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. As luck would have it, a major publishing house picked it up when one of their literary agents walked into the restaurant to escape a rainstorm. She picked up the cookbook and immediately realized its potential. Shortly after that, Deen’s cookbook career was off to an impressive start with promotional appearances on QVC, where it quickly became one of the best-selling cookbooks. By then, Deen’s career seemed to have no limits. In the years that followed, she published numerous other cookbooks, including The Lady & Sons Too!, The Lady & Sons Just Desserts, Paula Deen & Friends Living It Up Southern Style, and Paula Deen Classics. On October 24, Simon & Schuster will release Deen’s sixth cookbook, Paula Deen Celebrates.

Paula’s Home Cooking premiered on the Food Network on November 16, 2002. The program features Deen doing what she does best – being herself, teaching people how to bring joy into their kitchens and homes. With Deen, it’s about teaching viewers to bring out the best in their families and creating happy memories no matter what the budget.

This fall, Deen is launching her second program on the Food Network and taking it to a new level by inviting guests to participate in her cooking classes. Paula’s Party premieres in late October and features the silver-tressed wonder being playful and interacting with her audience. Needless to say, with Paula’s Party,viewers will have an inside view into what makes Deen so special – a clever wit, hearty laugh, and shear genius at making people feel good.

Deen appears regularly on “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The View,” and other leading programs. She recently had an opportunity to have a major acting role in Cameron Crowe’s film Elizabethtown starring Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, and Susan Sarandon.

Delicious!! I ordered this cake for this past Christmas dinner. It arrived in great shape and everyone thought the flavor was great. In fact, there was no cake left at the end of the day. The cake was not burnt and the peppermint flavor was just right. I plan on ordering this again next Christmas. Keep up the good work Paula! 01-21-11
Makes an impressive gift I had this cake shipped to my elderly aunt and uncle as a Christmas surprise. They said it was yummy and beautiful! They were impressed because it was a Paula Deen cake! 01-09-11
BIRTHDAY BLUES!!! This cake was for my birthday. I was so disappointed! The outside of the cake was burnt. There was red from the peppermints running all over the top of the cake. The cake had virtually no flavor except for burnt! We ended up throwing a $45 cake into the trash! No, Happy Birthday for me! :( 01-09-11
So disappointing! I wanted to like this cake, but it was not very good. Nobody at our Christmas dinner liked it. I ate only the inside. Something about the peppermint taste was just not good. I wanted to send it back, but it is way to much trouble to send perishable items back. Just tossed 40.00+ dollars in the garbage. Sorry Paula Deen, I still love you!! 12-29-10
Burnt Edges I was so disappointed with the cake when I cut into it. The outside edges of all layers are burnt, or very overly done, almost black. The cake to the inside is great, but no one ate the outside of their piece because of the burnt sides. 12-26-10
Disappointing I ordered this cake to have on Christmas Day for dessert. Not one person liked it. The cake was extremely dry, the icing not at all buttery smooth. It did have the peppermint flavor thats for sure, but overall I was very unhappy with the cake. Had expected much better for Paula Deen and a $40.00 cake. 12-26-10
Best Christmas Cake I'm so glad I ordered this cake. It is wonderful. It's moist and the frosting is so yummy. Not greasy at all. It has just the right amount of peppermint flavor. It's not overpowering. My husband loved it, too, which says a lot! It was still frozen when it arrived and we kept it frozen until Christmas day. Took it out of the freezer that morning and it was perfectly thawed by mid afternoon. 12-26-10
Great cake This cake is so good, I could not stop eating it. The texture and taste are very high quality, and peppermint taste is not overwhelming. This is the second year that I am purchasing this cake. 12-16-10
