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.  If you would like to know about any Allergens used in our creations or special dietary requirements then please ask.

Some of the items on your cake might be made out of sugar paste.  Can’t Resist Cakes strongly recommend that these are not eaten as they contain a high concentrate of colouring.

The decorations may also contain wires, jewels and other non edible products.  It is your or your caterer’s responsibility to endure that these non edible products are removed before serving the cake to yourself or your guests. Alternatively we can provide a fully edible cutting cake that is not so highly coloured or decorated.

Delivery of wedding cakes costing over £250 includes free set-up at choice of venue as long as it is within a radius of 10 miles, extra charges apply outside of this catchment area.

Please make sure you provide us with the delivery address, date, time and a contact name at the delivery site. It is your responsibility to provide these details within a reasonable time frame.

Multi-tiered cakes are usually transported in their individual tiers then assembled and stacked on site, where any last minute decorations and last minute touches are also applied.

Every possible care will be taken for delivery and set up of your cake. If you do not require set up and delivery only, then once your cake has been delivered the cake becomes the responsibility of the customer. If setting up is required, then the cake becomes the responsibility of the customer when set up is complete.
