At time of delivery and setup, a designated responsible party must be present to inspect and sign for final cake setup. In the case of a mishap or damage, Pastry Palace will advise the responsible party immediately. Once the cake is set up and accepted, it is no longer the responsibility of Pastry Palace. Due to high volume of cake deliveries, we cannot wait more than 10-20 minutes after your scheduled delivery time. Please be certain that the facility is prepared to accept delivery at the time you schedule. No changes can be made to delivery time or date within two (2) weeks of the delivery.

All design aspects must be delivered to our location no later than 7 working days prior to cake delivery date and time.

Flowers for Your Cake:

Fresh Flowers – If you are requesting that real flowers be included in your cake design, please have your florist provide the correct type and number of flowers needed to complete your desired design. We require that you or your florist delivery your flowers at least 8 hours prior to cake delivery time. We are not responsible for damages that occur if other parties attempt to place flowers onto the cake after delivery. You acknowledge that fresh flowers are not a food product and may contain pesticides, insects, dirt, or other contaminants.

Gum Paste Flowers – If you request gum paste flowers, we make every attempt to order them in time for your event from our suppliers. In the case that they are back-ordered or do not arrive on time, we will substitute a quality silk equivalent to carry out your design.

If the table is to be skirted or otherwise covered, it must be prepared before the cake is set up. The table must be secure and level and must be able to support a minimum of 50 pounds. Once the cake is set up – it is no longer the responsibility of Pastry Palace. Pastry Palace cannot be held responsible for tables provided by the customer that fail to support the weight of the cake, or for any problems/damages that may occur if the cake is moved after delivery.

Weather / Climate Conditions:

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the cake will be stored and set-up in an area that is climate controlled to ensure that the cake remains intake and retains its original condition. Extreme high temperatures and humidity due to weather conditions, and the lack of a cool environment at the appointed location, may adversely affect the condition of the cake. Pastry Palace will take every step possible to ensure a quality product on delivery. But Pastry Palace cannot be held responsible for unfavorable conditions at the cake’s destination.
