Terms and Conditions
Designer Custom Cakes
Deposit and Terms of Payment
To commence cake production we require a 50% non-refundable deposit based on the agreed quote and all art work and design approved by the client. The remaining balance is due and payable at least 2 weeks prior to collection or delivery. Your order is not confirmed until we have received your signed contract and 50% non-refundable deposit.
Payment can be made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) cash, cheque or credit card (Visa, Amex, or Mastercard). Cake orders placed with less than two weeks notice require payment in full by credit card at the time of ordering. Deposits are non-refundable.
*Please note all EFT payments need to be received before cakes are released.
Event dates are held for you through the date of your appointment or quote, and five (5) business days afterwards.
If we do not receive a signed contract and 50% deposit within five (5) business days of appointment or quote, your date may become unavailable.
Design/Tasting appointments are held for most, but not all, cake orders. There is a non-refundable $100 deposit required for appointments, payable by credit card. The $100 deposit will be deducted from the final cost of your cake.
Every effort will be made by Planet Cake to fulfill the expectations of the client as understood by the consultant and you will receive a sketch or photo reference. However due to the subjectivity of the work and the different decorators involved there may be slight variations. There are also structural limitations when using cake as a sculptural medium. As a consequence Planet Cake will need to make certain decisions during the process of manufacture that may affect the style of decoration, proportion or structure of the cake.
Cancellations & Deposits
If you cancel your order, your balance payment is refundable minus an administration fee of $100 provided Planet Cake is notified at least five (5) business days prior to the event. There is no payment refund on orders canceled within five (5) business days of the event.
In order for a full refund to be granted Planet Cake requests that the cake in question either be photographed (in the case of interstate and overseas deliveries) or returned to Planet Cake for inspection. Any other complaint not covered by the ‘Fair Trading Act 1987 No. 68’ will be subject to our customer service policy with remedies at the discretion of management.
Appointment booking fee will not be refunded under any circumstances.
Appointments: As part or our service we offer a 1 hour appointment with a cake designer so that we can completely attend to your requirements. A $100 booking fee applies and will be deducted from your final balance should you wish to proceed with the cake. You will meet with a Planet Cake designer who will sketch your design and you will receive a sample box of cake flavours to take home. Additional appointments over and above this initial appointment will be charged at $50 per appointment.
Designs/Changes: All clients are entitled to a design sketch as part of our sales offering, post deposit you are entitled to one set of changes and a final sketch/design without incurring further charges. However additional designs/sketches and changes will incur additional charges of $50 per sketch.
Planet Cake will make every effort to care for and return reference materials provided by the client in order to facilitate cake decoration and design. However Planet Cake will not accept financial liability for the materials in cases of loss or damage (unless covered by our existing insurance policy).
Every measure is taken by our Artists to ensure that your figurines are made to the highest standard; however they are made from icing and Styrofoam and as a result are very fragile. We are happy to provide care instructions for your figurines and if cared for properly they will last for years; however we do not accept any liability for your figurines once they have been removed from the cake we do not operate a figurine hospital due to the huge number of figurines we make (photo evidence required when figurines break whilst on the cake).
GST is applicable on all quoted prices and will be clearly itemised on your quote and invoice.
It is unfortunate that we must now include this clause, it only is applicable to very few clients, however Planet Cake will not tolerate ‘Bridezilla’ or ‘Groomzilla’ behaviour. This includes excessive emails (over 15), excessive phone calls, rudeness to Planet Cake staff, and abnormal irrational behaviour. Planet Cake is a high end couture cake decorator; we pride ourselves on our service and aim to give you the best service possible. If clients cannot abide by our normal code of conduct and engage in any of the behaviour listed above we reserve the right to terminate the cake order subject to the cancellation conditions listed.
