Cake Tastings are offered to contracted clients ordering $375 or more of product.
The Cake Diva offers a personal cake tasting to clients who have placed a down payment on their contracted order. The tasting includes your choice of 3 cake flavors, 3 fillings, and 3 icings. These flavor choices can be found in the ‘Cake Information Tab’. The Cake Diva will combine your choices into 3 small cakes baked fresh for our appointment. The tasting fee is $30, and is non-refundable.
For the tasting, I am happy to meet you at The Event Gallery at 2909 Bryant Avenue South, Minneapolis (1 block north of Lake Street/Bryant Avenue). I am available for appointments during the day or evening. Please allow at least 2 weeks of notice for a custom cake tasting.
The Cake Contract
We will complete a contract for custom cake orders over $375 so that all parties know EXACTLY the cake size/type, design, flavor, number of servings, delivery date/time, and other details associated with your order. The contract will note all fees included on your order including sales tax, delivery, design fees (if applicable), and any other costs associated with your cake design. Color swatches must be submitted for a close match. I cannot promise an exact color match in fondant, buttercream, nor royal icing as we are dealing with sugar – not paint from a can. All artwork/photos/sketches exchanged in our communications are MERELY an example of what your cake or dessert may look like. All final artwork decisions and finishes on your cake or dessert are made by The Cake Diva. Do not expect an exact match of color or example image or sketch, and/or the picture you have in your mind. This is CAKE ART and I am the artist. I appreciate your trust in my work.
DEPOSIT: A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your date on The Cake Diva’s calendar. Your order is NOT confirmed until we have received your signed contract and 50% non-refundable deposit. The outstanding balance must be paid in full 30 days prior to your event date.
The Cake Diva does not accept personal checks but will take cash, a money order or cashier’s check, or credit cards (a 3% fee or more will apply to credit card payments.
CANCELLATION POLICY: If you cancel your order, the balance payment (not the deposit) is refundable provided The Cake Diva is notified at least 15 business days or 3 full weeks prior to the event. No refunds will be granted on orders cancelled with less than 15 business days/3 full weeks prior to your event.
Event dates are held for you through the date of your tasting appointment or emailed quote, and five (5) business days afterwards. If we do not receive a signed contract and 50% deposit within five (5) business days of your appointment or quote, your date may become unavailable.
OUTSIDE DESSERT POLICY: The Cake Diva will not allow any outside desserts to be provided at your wedding reception. If The Cake Diva arrives at your wedding reception and finds other cakes or desserts present, The Cake Diva reserves the right to break the contract and will not complete the wedding cake delivery. I instill this for your safety and the safety of your guests. Not all food is prepared properly and in accordance with Food Safety guidelines. I will take responsibility for food preparations made in MY commercial space, and will NOT assume liability for desserts made elsewhere.
