Delivery and acceptance
Emily Hankins takes pride in delivering her cakes and favors on time and in perfect condition.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure you have supplied the correct delivery information and that someone is available to receive your cake. A signature will be required for the receipt of your order upon delivery.
In the unlikely event that Emily Hankins fails to provide the items specified in the order or items are significantly damaged prior to collection or delivery, you can either:
a) accept and pay for the delayed or damaged items.
b) reject the delayed or damaged items in which case Emily Hankins will refund the balance paid.
Once the cake has been collected or signed for on delivery, Emily Hankins cannot be held responsible for any damages thereafter.
Emily Hankins shall not be liable for any consequential losses, damages or other costs arising from a failure to fulfil the contract.
Please be aware that whilst your chosen cake may not be made with nuts or a nut product, it will be prepared in a kitchen where nut products may be used in other cakes and fillings. Information concerning dairy, wheat or gluten allergies can be provided on request.
Fresh flowers and non edible items
If you choose to have fresh flowers on your cake please be aware that not all flowers and foliage are safe to be in contact with food. It is your responsibility to check with your florist that any flowers supplied are suitable for this specific use. If you or your florist have concerns around this Emily Hankins is happy to discuss this with you.
Emily Hankins has the right to refuse to apply flowers to the cake if she feels they are not food safe.
Cake flowers supplied by a florist need to be available at the venue before the agreed cake delivery time to ensure there is enough time to apply them to the cake correctly.
Your cake will have central dowels to keep the structure secure. Please ensure these are removed before the cake is served.
If there are any other non edible items used in your cake design, such as flower wires or ribbon these will be noted on your customer order form.
Emily Hankins always takes photographs of her cakes once they are set up at the venue as proof of safe delivery. Emily reserves the right to use these photographs on her website/social media unless previously requested otherwise.
By choosing to share any professional photographs with Emily Hankins after your wedding date you are giving permission for these to be used for promotional purposes unless requested otherwise.
