A booking fee is required to secure the number of days required to make a Wedding cake in the lead up to original first Wedding dates, in order for those days to be booked in Cake Rise’s diary, therefore, restricting other work that can be taken on in this time.

It does not cover other dates e.g non-refundable non-transferable.

It is required to cover some of the volume of admin cost & utility cost that each order generates etc & therefore non-refundable & non-transferable in all circumstances.

It is a couples responsibility to pay their booking fee in a timely fashion according to availability advised for their date at the time they inquired.   Availability changes constantly, & is always best to pay your booking fee in the days after you have inquired & received costs & info relating to your inquiry to secure your date.  If couples leave it & don’t come back in a timely fashion, Cake Rise is not responsible for changes to/or loss of availability for their date.  Cake Rise cannot send reminders, it is a couples responsibility to confirm their intentions to secure their date by paying a booking fee in the days after inquiring in a timely fashion.
