Full balance is due 4 weeks prior to the cake delivery date for wedding cakes. For other celebration cakes, the full balance is required 2 weeks prior to the delivery date if paying by cheque/bank transfer. Final payments in cash only will be accepted on the delivery date and no later. Failure to make payment of the remaining balance may result in your order being cancelled. Once payment has been received, confirmation will be sent to you.
