Red Robin Cakes reserves the right to increase a quoted fee in the event that the Customer requires a variation to the work agreed. Whilst every effort will be made to assist Customers, please note that late changes cannot always be guaranteed.

Collection
Your order may be collected at a pre-arranged time. A signature is required upon collection confirming that you have received your order in good condition and as specified. Please note that once the order has been signed for and left the premises, Red Robin Cakes takes no responsibility for any interference with or damage to the cake.
Please ensure after delivery or collection that your cake is kept out of sunlight and at room temperature. Cakes should never be stored in a car except when travelling to the event. Cakes covered in sugar paste or containing sugar paste decorations should not be kept in a refrigerator.
Please ensure that cakes displayed in marquees are set up as close to the guest arrival time as possible, as marquees become very warm on hot days.

Delivery
Your order can be delivered at a pre-arranged time. If you have a specific delivery time please specify this when placing your order. We will do our best to accommodate your requirements.
It is the Customers responsibility to ensure that you have given us correct delivery information and that someone is available to receive your cake. A signature will be required for the receipt of the order upon delivery.
If the recipient is not in, the order will be returned to Red Robin Cakes, who will contact you to arrange an alternative delivery time, for which an additional charge will be payable by the customer. Red Robin Cakes accepts no responsibility for any loss or consequential loss incurred by the Customer as a result, e.g. a wedding without a wedding cake.
We are able to offer free personal delivery within a ten mile radius of Crawley for celebration cakes. For wedding cakes we are willing to travel further afield however this may incur an additional fee depending on the distance needed to travel.

Setting Up
Should you require your cake to be delivered, Red Robin Cakes will deliver and set up your cake as agreed and will want to ensure that your cake is displayed at it's best. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have provided Red Robin Cakes with the set-up details and arrangements made with the venue for the location and display of your cake. Red Robin Cakes cannot be held responsible for the location of the cake at the venue. Please ensure therefore, that the display location is level, stable and strong enough to hold the cake.
Please also remember that chocolate covered cakes can melt in warm conditions such as inside a marquee on a hot day, or when set up in direct sunlight.
As with collected cakes, once the cake has been delivered, set up and signed for, Red Robin Cakes is unable to accept liability for any interference with or damage to the cake thereafter.
If a cake is to be delivered and set up by Red Robin Cakes, a signature will be required from your venue management confirming the cake has been received and set up in good condition. A photograph of the cake will be taken prior to departure by Red Robin Cakes to verify that the cake has been set up and left in good condition.

Non-edible Components
Stacked cakes will be supported by internal plastic dowels/support rods which should be removed prior to serving. Any elements of your cake which are not fit for consumption, such as wired sugar flowers, will be highlighted on your confirmation form. It is your responsibility to ensure these items are removed prior to serving. Red Robin Cakes cannot take responsibility for any injury caused by consumption of a non edible component once the confirmation form has been signed.

Fresh Flowers
We are happy to liaise with your florist in order to dress your cake with a fresh floral arrangement. Please be aware some flowers can be toxic and should not be placed into contact with food. Your florist can advise you on the safest flowers to dress your cake with. Red Robin Cakes are not responsible for any problems with fresh flowers and any damage rendered to the cake caused by a fresh floral arrangement.

Allergies
Please be aware that whilst your chosen cake may not be made with nuts or a nut product, it will be prepared in a kitchen where nut products may be used in other cakes and fillings, therefore we cannot guarantee that all cakes are 100% free from nut traces. The same principal applies to dairy, wheat, gluten and eggs.

Cake Stand Hire
If you would like to hire a cake stand, then a deposit is required prior to release. Deposit amounts vary dependent on the value of the stand you wish to hire. Please make arrangements to ensure that items hired are safely returned to us within 7 days of the cake release. Once we receive the hired stand back we will release the deposit held subject to the item being returned in perfect, undamaged condition.

Portion Guide
Our portion guides are intended as a guide only. This will vary dependent on how the catering staff at the venue cuts the cake.
