ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATING TO BESPOKE B2B ORDERS
All products are the responsibility of the customer once it leaves us. Once you or a designated party has collected an order or signed for it, it is considered "accepted". In some instances, you may bring the cake back in for design adjustments or someone will be sent to you (this may incur an additional charge). We only accept JPEG photographs as links and other attachments are not reliable.
We are not responsible for any damage occurring to the cake during transport, set-up or any time thereafter. Do bear in mind that cakes are very fragile, and damages can happen if not handled properly – such as cracks, smudges, melted frosting, etc. We only offer refunds in accordance with our Terms and Conditions.
Design Service: We offer you a bespoke consultation design service at no extra cost. Consultations are arranged based upon a mutually agreed time with a maximum of two individuals who will meet our consultant. If your design includes toys or action figures, you must buy these as we do not supply such items.
Lead Times: To ensure that we can accommodate your order we kindly request that orders are placed well in advance. We kindly request three months’ notice for corporate events and one month for other personalised customer gifts. Whilst we may occasionally accommodate orders with less notice it is recommended that you adhere to the recommended times or earlier.
B2B Payment: A fifty percent non-refundable deposit is required to confirm your order. The balance of your payment is due two weeks prior to delivery or collection of the cake. Payment can be made by credit card, debit card, or BACS transfer.
Alterations of B2B Orders: These are accommodated up to two weeks before your order is can be made to your order is collected or delivered. Where alteration alters the overall cost, this will be reflected in the balance.
Collection and Delivery: We offer a delivery service for bespoke products which is inclusive of not just the delivery of your products but also includes assembly. This depends on a liaison with you, your representative and the staff at the venue to ensure a smooth operation; this is the customer's responsibility. It is highly recommended that customers request to pay for our delivery and assembly service for any cake higher than two tiers. Higher tiers tend to be more difficult to transport, hence the other tiers are often collected or delivered in separate boxes for self assembly if you have not requested to pay for our delivery and assembly service.
Delivery charges are included in the total cost of your order and will be specified in your invoice. Further information on delivery charges can be obtained by contacting customer service by using our online contact system. Simply contact us via email; email@example.com (for mainland UK customers).
It is highly recommended that collection dates are adhered to as our baked products are hand made to order. Collection dates ensure that your order is in peak condition. We are unable to refund or offer a substitute as a result of a late collection. If you are unable to adhere to your collection date, please email us as soon as possible.
General Storage Tips: Products placed outside are liable to react to prevailing atmospheric conditions. In hot or humid weather there is the possibility of sugar decorations melting or damage to products. Please note, we do not provide additional things such as cake tables, tablecloths or cutting knives. It is the responsibility of the customer to provide these or check with the venue to ensure these items are provided. Please note, once cakes have been cut into the shelf life will be reduced. While our cakes usually last for longer, for peak condition we recommend eating your cakes within 24 hours of collection/delivery especially when very moist ingredients are present such as fresh fruit or fresh dairy. Ensure that your baked products are stored in the packaging provided in a cool area away from heat or sunlight. Always keep products covered to prevent loss moisture and for health and safety reasons before your event. It is only recommended that buttercream or ganache covered cakes maybe stored in the refrigerator in original packaging. In exceptional circumstances where appropriate, products may be supplied with storage and assembly instructions.
For Daddy's Dessert Cream, we highly recommend storing in the refrigerator and best used before date stated.
For commercial orders, it is best to place bespoke cakes in the boot of a car and driving carefully is also recommended for safe transportation. We are not liable for any product once it has been handed over by us. There are however some exceptions in the case of mail related orders.
