Communication is key; if you are up-front about any issues with your date, I will work hard to accommodate you. I understand that things can come up that are out of your control.
I promise to do everything I can to deliver you a cake that exceeds your expectations. I will work with you on every level to ensure you are completely satisfied and happy with your cake. Please note that the colors and design of the actual cake may vary slightly from any sample picture sent due to the nature of digital and edible components.
Betty Black Baking cannot be held responsible for anything that should happen to the cake once delivery is complete. Incidents such as food ants, excessive sunlight, & weather conditions are out of Betty Black Baking's control once delivery has been completed. Please note that direct sunlight and temperatures of 75 degrees and higher may have drastic and adverse effects on any cake.
All orders must be picked up at the specified time during order confirmation. Any order picked up more than 1 hour after said time will result in a late pick-up fee of $25.
In the case of an emergency or an error in your cake delivery, please contact me immediately so I can fix the issue immediately! If you are unhappy with your cake, please call me on the day of your event and explain the situation. If you are unhappy with your cake and would like a refund, you must call on the day of your event so your cake can be returned. Without proof that you are indeed unhappy with the product and will not be using it for your event, I will be unable to refund a certain percentage of the portion of your payment. This is necessary to hinder the very rare case of the “If we complain, we’ll get a free cake” issue. I am dedicated to satisfying my client’s cake requirements.
