~Most cakes are priced per serving. $6 per serving for buttercream cakes or $7 per serving for fondant cakes. Grooms cakes are priced the same per serving unless it's a 3-D/shaped cake, then those are priced individually. Sheet cakes are $2.50 per serving. Tiered wedding cakes are standard industry size; 5"x3"x1" unless special request are made. All flavors and fillings are included. Delivery, flowers, and non-edibles are a little extra depending on what you need. Or you can provide flowers and I will put them on for you when I deliver. I require a non-refundable $100 deposit to secure your wedding date and the rest is due two weeks before the wedding. Payment is due in full for special occasion cakes at the time of order. See below for full policy. Tastings are free, by appointment only and held in Mckinney. Please contact us for a price quote!

A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to reserve your wedding date. You may cancel your wedding day reservation until 14 days prior to your wedding and use the $100 as a credit for another service.
Cancellation Policy: Changes and cancellations to orders are accepted until 14 days prior to scheduled pick up or delivery time. No refunds will be provided for orders that are canceled with less than 14 days notice of the wedding date. All cancellation refunds outside of the 14 day policy are subject to a 50% fee: Cakes by Design will retain 50% of the price of the cake to cover costs incurred to initiate your order. If the cancellation is made within the 14 day period the customer may still use the amount paid towards any cake or dessert service for another event up to the initial paid amount for up to one year after cancellation.
Changes to order: You may make any changes (cake flavors, servings counts, and design) that you wish to an order until 14 days prior to the pick up or delivery time on your written order form. Certain request can be made within the 14 day period...just ask with the baker!
Refund Policy: If upon picking up your cake, you are not satisfied with the look of your cake, you are NOT obligated to take the cake. If you choose not to take the cake, you will be issued a full or partial refund via original purchase method less the deposit fee at the discretion. Once the baker has left the cake we are not responsible for any damage occurring to the cake during transport, set-up or any time thereafter.
After the cake leaves the shop, special consideration will be given to any issues regarding cake flavors and fillings. Refunds will be determined based upon portion of cake returned to the shop.
Delivery: We are not responsible for any damage to your cake after the cake has been safely delivered and set-up or picked up from our bakery. Every effort will be made to deliver on time, however, delivery of your cake may be delayed due to traffic, accidents, weather, acts of God, and other causes beyond our control.
Set-up: We are not responsible for any damage to your cake(s) after our delivery and setup is complete. The client is responsible for providing an appropriate size, level, and stable table with a cool and safe environment for the cake(s). We are not responsible for damage resulting from tables and cake stands that are not level, weak, too small, or placed in a warm area. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE AN UMBRELLA or CANOPY FOR SHADE if cake is to be placed outside. A cake left in the sun is a disaster waiting to happen. Please keep in mind that there can be wind, rain, temperature, pets, bugs, or other situations, especially for outdoor deliveries that can harm or cause damage to your cake. POST DELIVERY: We are not responsible for damage to your cake if someone at your reception site moves your cake after it has been safely delivered and set-up. We photograph all of our cakes upon completion of delivery for proof that the cake was perfect before baker leaves.
Color: All attempts will be carefully made to coordinate and/or match your colors, however, please be aware that food colors do not always perfectly match fabric, flowers, table coverings, napkins, etc. Depending on the mediums used, colors can be slightly altered by ingredients (i.e. butter and white chocolate can cause slight variations). Food colors may also fade in bright light.
Ingredients: We use the finest quality ingredients in our bakery. Our products may contain milk, wheat, nuts, and other allergens. We are not responsible for any allergic reactions. We do take great care, however, if you have requested a special diet cake but still please be aware that allergens still may be present. If you have a deathly allergy we suggest you seek another baker who specializes in your allergy.
