Cancellations Due To COVID-19
If you are currently booked with us and wish to reschedule or downsize your order due to Covid , then we will happily take care of this for you, with no penalty. If you are not able to do this, and wish to cancel completely, then you may receive a partial refund. However, we require at least one weeks’ notice for this option.
Cancelling the week of the event, and expecting a refund, will not be an option at this late stage. Please be mindful, many hours go into the creation of a cake. Quite often the sugar/fondant work is created in advance. If the cake is not yet complete, we may be able to give a “partial” credit/refund.
At THE PATISSERIE OAK FLATS we pride ourselves on the quality of our products and services.
All our ingredients are of the highest quality. All cakes are made in premises in which nuts are used, every effort is taken to keep ingredients separate however cakes may contain traces of nuts.
It is important to remember that cakes are a perishable and delicate product.
Our aim is to provide only the freshest and highest quality cakes to our customers.
Fondant cake must NOT be stored in the fridge, if you do store these cakes in the fridge this may cause colours/icing to melt and bleed.
Buttercream / Swiss Meringue Buttercream cakes MUST be stored in the fridge preferably in the box that they're given to you in. FAILURE to do this may cause some faults/damage in the structure. Please remember these are CAKES not concrete.
If for some reason the cake has been damaged when it has left our premises (whilst in your care), or after delivery to the venue, then we take no responsibility. However, if you request an emergency call-out, we will endeavour to restore the cake to its original presentation, at an agreed call-out fee.
Variations From Pictured Items
Please understand if a picture/image is supplied, then in some cases it may be necessary to change a colour or vary a product from the picture as certain items may be unavailable from time to time. We are not copy cat decorators, and can only try to replicate what we can, within our limits.
Where items are provided on cakes (plastic figures, toys or handmade sugared items) they are strictly provided as decorations on a cake, and it is advised that these are not consumed.
