Terms and Conditions

All Cakes made by Demaries Creations (Pty) Ltd are subject to the following terms and conditions

Ingredients

All our ingredients are of the highest quality.
All fruit cakes used contain nuts, or traces of nuts or nut oil.

Storage

Sugar paste (the soft icing covering the cake) is not designed to be refrigerated and as such cakes with this icing should be stored in a cool dry place, preferably in the box they were supplied in, refrigeration may cause colours to run.

Orders

We prefer three months notice on wedding cakes however we will accept short notice cakes subject to the availability of the date required.
Any cake ordered from a picture or photo of a cake produced by any other cake maker, can only be reproduced by cake for all occasions as our interpretation of that cake and will not be an exact reproduction of the cake in the picture or photo.

Cakes Decorated with Fresh Flowers

If your cake design requires fresh flowers, your florist will supply these.  Please liaise directly with your florist regarding the specific floral requirements and we will decorate the cake with the flowers on site.
NB. Please note some flowers are not suitable for use as a cake decoration.  Ask your florist for details regarding toxicity.  We cannot be liable for any contamination to our food product that may arise from their misuse.

Cakes Decorated with Non-edible Materials

The use of non-edible materials for cake decoration is becoming increasingly popular.  Please note that the ‘craft jewels’ and accessories such as brooches, ribbons, silk flowers, diamante, beads, feathers etc. that are used to decorate some of our cakes are not edible and must be removed from your cake before serving.  All of our decorative gems and accessories are only used at the clients request and Demaries Creations accepts no responsibility for any physical harm that may arise from their use.
