Terms & Conditions
All Cakes made by Lou Wilcox at Crazy Daisies Bakery are subject to the following terms and conditions.
All of our ingredients are of the highest quality.
All fruit cakes used contain nuts, or traces of nuts, unless no nuts requested.
Sponge cakes are made to be eaten on the day of the celebration. The cakes are made in premises in which nuts are used, every effort is taken to keep ingredients separate, however, cakes may contain traces of nuts.
Sugar paste (the soft icing covering the cake) is not designed to be refrigerated, and as such, cakes with this icing should be stored in a cool dry place, preferably in the box they were supplied in, refrigeration may cause colours to run.
Lou prefers three months notice on wedding cakes, however, she will accept short notice cakes subject to her availability of the date required.
Any cake ordered from a picture or photo of a cake produced by any other cake maker, can only be reproduced by Crazy Daisies Bakery as Lou’s interpretation of that cake and will not be an exact reproduction of the cake in the picture or photo.
