I strive to deliver cakes on time, however I cannot be held liable if weather, traffic or other conditions out of my control that delay the delivery.
Please make me aware if there is anything that will make delivery problematic. Such as no parking, roadworks or your venue isn’t easy to find.
Although every possible care will be taken with the delivery and set up of your wedding cake, once delivered the cake becomes the responsibility of the wedding venue / customer.
