DELIVERIES are available for wedding cakes for a delivery fee. A suitable time for delivery and setup will be arranged between Katie and the wedding venue. Katie may suggest delivery for other cakes of 3 or more tiers due to them being very delicate and need to be transported with extreme care.

CAKE COLLECTION: The pick up address will be found on your invoice along with suggested pick up times on the invoice email. Please let Katie know what time she can expect you for collection. Katie will not wait for you to collect the cake outside her opening hours. If you are running late you must contact Katie to let her know to arrange an alternative option. The cake will be in a fully enclosed cake box ready for transport. All cakes are delicate and must be handled with EXTREME care. The best place to transport a cake is in the boot of a large car. Small cars or sedans may not have enough room to fit all cake boxes. Please let Katie know what type of car you have. It will need constant cool air, preferably in air conditioning. Transporting your cake on the seat is NOT advised as they are not level. Passenger's laps are also not always a suitable option for large or tiered cakes. When traveling with your cake, extreme caution must be taken when driving up hills, around corners and on bumpy roads etc.
Your cake can be ready for collection the day before or day of the event. Once your cake is collected you are responsible for the care of your cake. Katie Young's Cakes is no longer liable or responsible for any damage that may occur.
Fondant cakes must NOT be refrigerated. They should be kept in a cool dry area. You will receive a care guide with your cake. Please read through this carefully and follow these directions. Buttercream cakes must be refrigerated at all times until displaying at your event. Traveling with a buttercream cake that has not been refrigerated, will end in disaster.
Mud cakes are best consumed within 4-5 days. Non mud cakes must be consumed within 2 days. Fruit cakes, if stored well with last for at least 3 months.
All cakes are baked and decorated from scratch with fresh ingredients. We are not able decorate any cakes provided by the customer. Some special dietary requirements may be available but all cakes are made and decorated in an environment that may have traces of gluten, dairy, egg and nuts. Please specify if this will be a problem.
All orders must be organised in writing. Orders and quotes will not be provided or taken over text or phone calls. Emails are my filing system so I have all of the details of the order in writing for future reference.

Any complaints must be in writing via email. If you are not satisfied with your cake it must be returned within 24 hours of the event to be inspected and tasted by Katie.
