Consultations

Consultations are available to discuss your requirements by appointment only. Cake sampling can also be arranged for a fee.

Price Quotations

All price quotations, written or verbal, are valid for 10 days from the date of quotation.

Alterations

If you have any queries or need to make any changes to an order please contact us immediately. Alterations and amendments must be submitted in writing. We will assess the request for an alteration, and endeavour to make alteration where possible dependant on the design and amount of notice given. We will let you know its effect on the price and any agreed timetable. Accepting any alterations is at the discretion of the Seller. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to check any quotes and invoices thoroughly before making payment. We reserve the right to change the design at any point if circumstances beyond our control compromise the quality of the finished product. e.g. weather conditions, availability of ingredients. The Buyer will be notified of any such changes and we will endeavour to keep any changes minimal.

Damages

The buyer, or their representative, will be invited to inspect the goods at the time of delivery/collection. In the unlikely event that a fault is found, an appropriate solution will be agreed with the buyer, or their representative. The buyer, or their representative, will be required to sign for receipt of the goods, by doing so they agree that the goods are satisfactory. The Seller accepts no liability for goods that are damaged after they have been signed for.

All For Cakes Sake products are fragile and require care and attention when handling, storing, and displaying. It is recommended that all products are stored and transported flat. The seller recommends that our products are transported in the boot of the car where they can lay flat. Please pay careful attention to any additional storage and transportation (where relevant) instructions that will be provided with your goods.

Equipment Hire

Equipment may be provided to you for hire. A minimum security deposit of £50 may be required at the time of delivery/collection. This will be taken in cash, and will be returned, in full, when the equipment has been returned in perfect condition.

In the event that an item(s) becomes damaged or lost, the Buyer will become liable for the cost of replacement of that item(s). A copy of an invoice, receipt, item listing, or quote will be provided to The Buyer as proof of the cost of replacement. In most cases, the cost of replacement will be deducted from the deposit. In the event that this is not possible, an invoice will be generated for the amount due. This must be paid by The Buyer within 7 days of the end date of the hire period, or generation of the invoice, whichever is sooner.

Unless otherwise agreed, the hire period is 7 days.

Hired equipment must be returned to our kitchen in Dundee. Return times are by arrangement with The Seller.

Allergies and Special Dietary Requirements

Please discuss any allergies or special dietary requirements with us before ordering. We may not be able to accommodate your allergy and we cannot accept any responsibility for illness, or disappointment, that may arise as a result of non-disclosure.

We regularly use nuts and gluten on our premises and therefore cannot guarantee a nut or gluten free product.

Delivery and Collection

We cannot be held liable for any damages to the goods once they have been accepted. The collection vehicle should have a flat surface and be clean and tidy. This is the responsibility of the Buyer. The goods may be fragile so we advise the buyer, or their representative, to drive very slowly and carefully. We also recommend non-slip matting. A time slot will be given for delivery/collection, we cannot guarantee delivery or collection will be available outside of that time so please make sure someone is available to receive delivery for the duration of that time, or ensure prompt collection. Refunds will not be given if delivery or collection fails due to the buyers unavailability. In the event of any unexpected delays, please contact us as early as possible so we can discuss alternatives. In the unlikely event that we are delayed we will stay in close contact with you and we and will always endeavour to deliver the goods to you as close as possible to the given delivery time.

After Delivery

It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure the venue is able to accommodate the goods we provide. Please check with them before making a booking to ensure they are willing to accept goods from external caterers and that they can fully accommodate you in terms of display, service, serving dishes, plates, cutlery, and tea cups and whatever else you may need to serve the food we have provided.

Our products are best enjoyed within 24 hours of delivery/collection. However, celebration cakes may last up to a week if kept at an ambient temperature (do not refrigerate, unless otherwise advised), in an air tight container. Some items such as savoury items, items made with fresh cream and macarons will need to be refrigerated to maintain freshness.


Non-Edible Ingredients and Decorations

Our Goods may contain non-edible ingredients or decorations, such as plastic dowels in tiered cakes or wires in some sugar flowers. These will be detailed on the Delivery Note and must be removed before serving.


Complaints

If you wish to make a complaint to us or let us know any concerns after receiving goods, please do so immediately in writing. Evidence of any faults, damages or discrepancies should be included with your complaint and uneaten food must be retained in case of further investigation. Disputes will be handled on an individual basis, and if resolution cannot be made we may refer the case to the local Environmental Health Department or Trading Standards.

Class Bookings

Unfortunately we cannot issue a refund if you need to cancel your class booking. If you wish to book onto a different class this may be possible in some circumstances, and transfers will be at the discretion of the manager. We reserve the right to cancel any class. In the unlikely event that we have to cancel a class, we will offer a full refund, the option to reschedule or a transfer to another class.

If the alternative class differs in price an additional payment/refund will become due, as appropriate. We will endeavour to advise you as far in advance as possible if we do need to cancel a class.
