Tres Belle cakes:
Our policies

RETAINERS AND PAYMENTS
Custom orders are booked on a first come, first paid basis. Your custom cake order is considered booked upon receipt of a non-refundable retainer of 50% of the total cake cost. The balance of the order must be paid in full at time of pickup.

COMMUNICATION
Tres Belle Cake's office hours are Wednesday through Friday 8:00am - 5:00pm, and Saturday 10:00am - 3:00pm. We will answer phones and respond to all non-urgent emails within these hours.

CHANGES TO ORDER
Any changes made to the overall design concept must be submitted in writing and finalized no less than seven (7) days before the scheduled pickup date. Changes may affect the final cost of the cake and will be reflected in the amount due.

ALLERGY AND DIETARY WARNING
Tres Belle Cakes is a licensed, insured, and health permitted bakery.  We are NOT an allergy-free kitchen. We cannot guarantee that our products are free from ingredients that may affect those with food allergies. Tres Belle Cakes reserves the right to decline any orders for clients with serious food allergies, and will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to our products.
While we will take every measure to minimize the risk of cross-contamination, we process known allergens such as tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, dairy, corn, gluten, and eggs. It is your responsibility to notify guests of allergen risks and hold us harmless for any allergic reaction.
The following ingredients are used in our kitchen:  Wheat and gluten;  Sugar and artificial sweeteners, flavorings, and dyes;  Peanuts and tree nuts, including but not limited to pecans, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, coconut and their derivatives;  Eggs;  Milk and milk products and derivatives;  Corn and soybeans and their derivatives;  Other allergens not listed.

OUTDOOR EVENTS
Cake, buttercream, fondant, and/or ganache are not meant to and will not withstand outdoor conditions such as heat, wind, rain, exposure to direct sunlight, humidity, insects, etc. You assume responsibility for that risk by displaying the cake(s) in an outdoor setting, and acknowledge that the cake(s) should be cut within 20-30 minutes of set-up, understanding that waiting outside that time frame could compromise the aesthetic of the overall cake design and finish to buttercream or fondant, as well as weaken the stability and structure of the cake. Tres Belle Cakes has no control over such elements and bears no responsibility of the cake being subjected to outdoor elements if you display a cake in a location without proper climate control.

FULFILLMENT
It is the intention of Tres Belle Cakes to make the cake(s) as ordered. Tres Belle Cakes shall not be held responsible for problems and failure to perform caused by an extreme emergency (including, but not limited to: auto accidents; illness, hospitalization or death; extreme weather, natural disasters, or other Acts of God; or any other circumstances or causes beyond the control of Tres Belle Cakes). Liability in such instances is limited to the price of the order.

POSTPONEMENT / CANCELLATION / REFUND POLICIES
Requests for cancellations or postponements must be made at least seven (7) days prior to the pickup date. No refunds will be given after that time. Some ingredients are ordered or created in advance. We are a busy store and orders are processed on a first in, first served basis. Therefore, if you cancel, your order has taken up time that could have otherwise been given to another customer.

Refunds requested due to decorating style, colour shade or general decoration design after the cake has been picked up will not be accepted. If you are unhappy with any of the design factors upon pickup, we may be able to make adjustments subject to our discretion and the design of the original product.

Cake flavor and texture is subjective. Refunds requested due to flavor or texture after cake has been accepted and picked up or delivered will not be honored. A credit may be issued if the product is brought back to Tres Belle Cakes within 24 hours of pickup or delivery and the quality of the cake flavor or texture is determined not to meet our standards. Quality determination is solely at the discretion of Tres Belle Cakes. Tres Belle Cakes will not issue refunds for cakes that have been completely eaten. No credit of any kind will be issued to clients who do not contact us within 24 hours of pickup or delivery.

PICKUP
Once picked up, you accept all responsibility for the transport of any product to its location. We will not give refunds if there is a mishap during transit. We are happy to advise you as to the best way to transport your cake, but it is your responsibility to exercise extreme care when moving and transporting your cake.


TRES BELLE CAKES
CUSTOM CAKE POLICIES

PAYMENT
Your non-refundable “Save the Date” retainer is considered a down payment and date reservation toward your event’s cakes/desserts, and will be applied toward your final balance. Your order is not confirmed and your date is still available to other clients until the retainer is paid.
The balance of the order must be paid in full twenty-one (21) days prior to the event date. lf payment has not been received twenty-one (21) days prior to the event, a $125 late fee will be added to the balance, and you will have a grace period of five (5) calendar days to complete payment in full, including late fee. If full payment has not been received after the stated grace period, Tres Belle Cakes will cease work without breach of contract, the order will be considered canceled, and no refund will be given. Tres Belle Cakes is not responsible for not supplying a cake due to failure to
complete payment by the specified deadlines.

DESIGN FINALIZATION
Changes to your order (size, decor, flavors, etc.) may be accepted until twenty-one (21) days prior to the event date. After that date we are unable to accept any further alterations.

DESIGN VARIATION
While Tres Belle Cakes makes every effort to provide the exact flavor, filling, decoration, size, color, shape, and design discussed during consultations, creating cakes and other desserts is an art form and may be subject to variations.
Color matching is not a precise science and different sugar substrates take color differently. We will do everything possible to match provided color swatches, but sometimes it is not possible to make a 100% perfect color match. Some colors are just not achievable using food grade dyes.
We cannot match a “verbal” color or a color sent via electronic device, as all monitors display color differently. To attempt a color match, you must provide a color swatch no later than 30 days in advance of the event.
To maintain stability and the integrity of your event cake, we reserve the right to make design and structural changes to your cake on site or off, without prior notification.

ORNAMENTS, TOPPERS, AND FLOWERS
Tres Belle Cakes reserves the right not to place ornaments on your cake if we feel that so doing will cause damage to your cake.
You are responsible for ordering flowers from your florist to adorn your cake. Please keep in mind that some flowers are harmful when eaten, and caution should be used by you and your florist when selecting flowers to insert into the cake.
Tres Belle Cakes is not liable for any damage or illness caused by floral inserts into the cake.
Fresh flowers must be placed on the cake table at the venue, prepped and ready for use upon our arrival.

Liability in such instances is limited to the contracted price.
If Tres Belle Cakes cannot perform as contracted due to the aforementioned conditions, we will make every effort to provide a substitute cake. A discount or refund will be issued based upon the difference between what was contracted and what we are able to provide.
If, for any reason other than nonpayment or cancellation by the Client, Tres Belle Cakes cancels the contract, all payments, including the non-refundable retainer, will be refunded in full.
Refunds will be given within 90 days.
