Unfortunately, unexpected things can happen after cake is set up (e.g getting bumped, moved or touched, cords or tablecloth pulling down the table.) If your cake is displayed outdoors, it is at the mercy of temperature, humidity, weather, wind, insects, sun and animals. Be sure location of cake table will not be sitting in path of sunshine. If inside, be sure venue will have the air conditioner on to cool the room before cake arrival. We do reserve the right to minimally alter cake design, accessories, etc, to suit any unforeseen situation or to move the cake table to a more stable, level, or safe location as we see fit. After cake is delivered and set up, Rita’s Bakeshop is relieved of ALL responsibility for the cake.
Client assumes full responsibility for making sure all non-edible cake décor , including but not limited to, sugar flowers, fabric ribbon and silk flowers are removed from the cake prior to cutting. Although sugar flowers are made of edible materials, they are not intended for consumption. They are hard and wires may be added for strength and flexibility to get a more natural look. Do not eat décor.
The size and number of tiers will be calculated to accommodate the desired number of servings based on industry standard wedding cake slice of 8 cubic inches( 4” high, 1” wide and 2” deep). Rita’s Bakeshop is not responsible for shortage of cake due to incorrect guest counts or failure to cut industry standard size slices.
