Quality

At Michelle THE CAKECHEF we pride ourselves on the quality of product & service. All our ingredients are the highest quality. Cakes may contain nuts or traces of nuts or nut oil. Gluten Free & Dairy free can be ordered, but cakes are made in a kitchen which does use gluten & dairy. All care will be taken by Michelle THE CAKECHEF, however we cannot be responsible for how the function centre cuts & handles your special dietary requirement cake. It is important to remember that cakes are a delicate & perishable product.

Storage & pick up

Fondant cakes are not meant to be refrigerated prior to your event. Doing so may result in colours running, condensation on your cake & decorations wilting. Fondant cakes must be kept in a cool air conditioned room. Do not place cakes in direct sunlight, outside on a table or in a marquee. Your cake may melt! If picking up a cake you must transport it flat, not on a car seat. The boot or floor space of front passenger seat is best. On a non slip mat. Once the cake has been picked up Michelle THE CAKECHEF is not responsible for any damage that may occur. Any leftover cake should be refrigerated for 3 days after your function.

For wedding cakes, the cake will be delivered at the time you agree with the function centre, if the cake table is not ready the cake will be left for the function centre to move. If the function centre staff damage the cake Michelle THE CAKECHEF is not responsible. We do NOT recommend freezing mud cake for 12 months. Leftover should be refrigerated for 3 days.

Variations

In some cases it may be necessary to vary a colour slightly or change a product slightly, as it may be unavailable for some reason. Michelle THE CAKECHEF reserves the right to vary from a pictured design as each decorator has their own unique style & way of doing things. If satin ribbon needs t be matched to bridesmaid dresses I will do my best to provide this or you can provide the ribbon yourself. If colour matching is needed, you will need to provide a colour swatch. Any icing figures or wired sugar flowers are decoration only & not recommended for consumption. They may contain wires or toothpick. Icing on the board is also not recommended to be eaten. To keep decorations, store in an airtight container with moisture sachets, out of sunlight. If damage occurs when removing figures/ decorations from the cake, they will not be replaced.

Refunds

As each cake is unique, so too, are your special requirements & concerns surrounding your order. If there is an issue, please note you must refrigerate or freeze the remainder of the cake immediately & return it to us on the next business day, if we are to consider any refund at all.
