Customer Satisfactions Guarantee
Should you be unhappy with the cake we will do everything we can to rectify the matter before the event. If you are still unsatisfied then we will refund the price of cake in return for the product.
If there is a design problem the cake is to be photographed and e-mailed within 24 hours of the cake being collected or delivered. Situations where the cake is eaten, and therefore not returned, vouchers may be offered.
If you have a complaint about the taste of the cake then a sample is to be provided within 24 hours.
Check your order
While we take every measure possible to check orders it is also the responsibility of the customer to make sure the details on the order form are accurate. While we will do everything we can to rectify the situation when an error is made i.e. wrong date then the responsibility lies with the customer to check the details.
Deposits and Payments
Once the order is placed the deposit (From £75 for wedding and large celebration orders or from £20 for other cakes) is non-transferable and non-refundable.
The order is confirmed on receipt of the deposit and no guarantees can be given on availability until the deposit has been paid.
Balances for wedding cakes are due 28 days before the wedding and for novelty cakes 7 days before the event.
In the event of cancellation, any work already completed is chargeable. Cancelled orders with less than 28 days’ notice are payable in full. Deposits cannot be returned except under exceptional circumstances.
Alterations to Orders
Any alterations to the original order must be confirmed in writing and may be subject to an additional charge.
When a cake is to be delivered it remains the responsibility of the company while in transit. Where any damage occurs then it is the sole responsibility of the company to make good any damage. If this is not possible, for whatever reason, then a refund will be given. Once delivered the cake is then the responsibility of the person or venue the cake is left with and we will not take any responsibility for any damaged caused after the safe delivery.
As you will appreciate that once the cake leaves us then responsibility then passes to the customer and the company is not liable for any damage in transit. Please be aware that a flat surface is required to retain the stability of the cake and should be secured where possible to remove the risk of movement in transit.
If you are unsure please ask Sadie.
Best Before Dates
When preparing some cakes, especially larger ones, the cakes need to be in prep for two sometimes three days before the event. While we do everything to ensure that the cake is as fresh as possible for the event the best before dates are usually within three days of the event.
If storing the cake before the event do not put the cake in the fridge as this will affect the quality of the sugarpaste and finish, store in the box provided in a cool dry place.
To assist in prolonging the shelf life after the event the cakes are best placed in a sealed container (this will damage a sugarpaste finish) in the fridge. We do not accept liability for consumption from three days following the event.
During the design process the customer will be informed of any non-edible decoration that will be used to construct the cake. The customer must relay this information to the venue / hosts.
