First things first

As every bride compiles inspiration from bridal magazines, Pinterest, and handwritten lists, the moment has arrived to ponder the sweet finale! Numerous factors can influence your cake or dessert table design. Do you envision a traditional cake, or perhaps a dessert table, pie display, or a charming doughnut wall? Once you’ve made your decision, remember to discuss the specifics with your florist. Providing insights into your dessert table expectations allows for seamless integration with your table centerpieces and floral arrangements, creating a harmonious and visually stunning connection.

Theme and colors…

What’s your wedding date – Summer, Fall, Winter, or Spring? Indoor or outdoor venue? These considerations are crucial, as seasonal factors like heat and humidity impact where your cake can be displayed to prevent melting. Aligning decorations with the season is key. Delve into your wedding theme – Vintage, Rustic, Beach, Woods, Classic, or Modern? Your cake should echo your chosen theme. Discuss your color scheme; while traditional wedding cakes are often white, it’s entirely possible to infuse your theme into a white cake. Bring images of your wedding dress to your cake artist; it’s a valuable reference for crafting the perfect wedding cake design.

Edible decorations…

Discover the enchanting world of shimmering wedding cakes! Elevate your cake with edible wonders like pearls, lace, gems, glitter, feathers, and more – reminiscent of the intricate details on your dress. The only constraint to your creative vision might be the dimensions of your budget.

Certainly, adhering to a budget is a reality for many of us, and I excel at assisting you in maintaining your cake budget. The extent of BLING and pizzazz we infuse into the cake often aligns with the size of your budget. Picture a cake suspended like a chandelier in the heart of the hall – the possibilities expand with a larger budget. While the elaborate cakes showcased in magazines and online are stunning, simplicity can be equally breathtaking.

7. Delivery: Fees may be added depending on the location of the venue and will be stipulated in the final price. If for any reason, you need to move or change your event to a new location that is more miles from the original location, a delivery fee of $3.00 a mile will be added based on how many miles beyond the first location we will be traveling for delivery and set-up. We are not responsible for the product, after it has been delivered. Please make sure the person doing your setup is aware of your vision and understands that cakes and cupcakes should not be left in the heat or direct sun. They will melt.
8. Setup: We are not responsible for the product after the setup by Angela’s Bakery is complete. You are responsible for providing an appropriate and secure table, stands, base and environment for any product delivered. Cakes are heavy and require a sturdy table, and an optimal room temperature of 67 degrees Fahrenheit or below.
9. Cake Stands: Pedestal stands will not hold the weight of a tiered cake or a cake over 10″ in diameter. Pick a solid base to go under the cake.
10. Fresh Flowers: provided by an outside source will be placed with NO additional fee. You acknowledge that fresh flowers are not a food product, and may contain pesticides, insects, dirt, or other contaminants. The bakery is not responsible for poorly sourced flowers.
11. Change of date or location: Angela’s Bakery is working with Brides and customers to accommodate schedules and remain flexible where necessary. Please let the bakery know as soon as possible if you will need to change locations, delivery or pick-up dates. Your retainer will secure the new date. If the bakery has a conflicting event we will make every effort to communicate our best availability and arrangements for your order. If you need to cancel your event, at the baker’s discretion, your retainer will become an in-store credit.
12. Pick up Order instructions: We are not responsible for any damage to the product after pick-up. Please have your AC on blast and a solid flat surface to place cupcakes or cakes on. Setting them on the floor next to a heat vent or on a seat in the sun, will cause melting and make the product unstable for transport. Do NOT leave cakes and cupcakes in your car while you run errands. (‘Quick stops’ can be hazardous to your frosted bakery products) If you or your representative elects to pick up and set up the ordered items, you assume all liability and responsibility for the condition of the product once it leaves our possession.
13. Travel instructions: Traveling for longer than 30 minutes? Let the bakery know and we will freeze them so they will be able to travel better.
14. Storage: When you arrive at your destination, cakes should be placed on a flat level surface in a cool area or refrigerated until ready to serve. Leftover cake can be frozen for use in the future.
15. Saving for later: Cakes, cupcakes, cookies and breads can be frozen up to 3 months for using at a later time. For information on how to wrap and store in the freezer contact the bakery.
16. Non-edible parts: Stacked cakes have non-edible support wood or plastic dowels and food-safe cake dividers between tiers. Some cake and cupcake toppers are not edible. Please use care to remove these items when cutting and serving the cake. Angela’s Bakery is not responsible for any non-edible left in the cake by your server.
17. Photographs of setup and product: On occasion, we will photograph our products and we reserve the right to use any photographs or videos without compensation to you.

20. Finally: The performance of this agreement is contingent upon our ability to complete the agreement and is subject to labor disputes or strikes, accidents, Acts of God, and other causes beyond our control.
