DEPOSIT/FULL PAYMENT 2018-04-03T15:27:29+00:00


(Please read ALL of the following information to make sure you understand what is required to confirm an order regarding a deposit & final/full payment).



A non-refundable deposit is required on all orders to secure the date you need in Cake Rise’s diary.  Dates are NOT booked until a non-refundable deposit is paid.  This is the ONLY way to confirm an order & is the fairest way to all who want the same date.

Please note: verbally expressing an interest in booking a date does not deem that date confirmed/booked/secured.   It is only confirmed once a non-refundable deposit is paid.



There may be availability at the time of an inquiry, however, availability changes constantly.  It is advisable to confirm a booking with a non-refundable deposit asap.

Cake rise is not responsible for advising of any changes in availability.  If we have no further contact about an inquiry, no deposit payment to secure/confirm a date or a long time has lapsed since last there was contact regarding your inquiry, Cake Rise is not responsible for any changes in availability for the date you require. The first to pay a non-refundable deposit for a date secures it.



Celebration Cakes Deposit:     €50-€100

Wedding Cakes Deposit:         €100-€150



WEDDING CAKE ORDERS –  2-4 weeks before a Wedding date.

LATE WEDDING CAKE ORDERS – Wedding cake orders only confirmed close to a Wedding date e.g 2/4/6 weeks beforehand,  final full payment is required 2-4 weeks before a Wedding date as is normal for any Wedding order regardless of timing of booking.  This may mean full payment is required immediately.

LATE CELEBRATION CAKE ORDERS – Late Celebration cake orders only confirmed close to a celebration date e.g 1-2 weeks beforehand or less, final full payment is required 1-2 weeks before a celebration as is normal for any Celebration order regardless of timing of booking.
