Food Allergies and Flowers Disclaimer (For customers who request the omission of a specific allergen in their dessert)
Artistic Cake Designs regularly uses soy, wheat, dairy or nuts in our ingredients and cannot be held liable for allergic reactions that occur due to trace elements of the allergen coming in contact with our desserts. Artistic Cake Designs will strive to eliminate contact with the known allergen to the best of their abilities, it is not a bakery that specializes in allergen-free desserts therefore a 100% allergen-free product cannot be guaranteed. It is the customers responsibly for informing their guests of this allergy information. Fresh flowers are not a food product, and may contain pesticides, insects, dirt, or other contaminants. Due to this, Artistic Cake Designs will not place fresh flowers on our desserts.
Dark Colors Disclaimer (For dessert orders that involve dark reds, blues, purples, or black colors)
Dark food coloring on desserts has the potential to stain linens, clothing, furniture, and teeth upon contact. Artistic Cake Designs cannot be held liable for issues resulting from my choice of dark color(s). Artistic Bakery Designs will strive to accurately match color choices, however some color tones, especially deep reds, vibrant blues, and violet tones, may not make an exact match due to the natural base colors of cake, frosting and decorating ingredients. Deep colors require a significant amount of food coloring, which may adversely affect the flavor and quality of desserts.

Production of the dessert, if a custom recipe or flavor request fails to perform well or risks compromising the stability or overall quality of the dessert, Artistic Cake Designs may substitute that part of the dessert with a more suitable and reliable menu option. Artistic Cake Designs will notify the customer upon delivery or pickup if/when that occurs.
The #1 goal of Artistic Cake Designs is to provide a stable, edible product therefore no refunds will be provided due to dissatisfaction with any recipe, flavoring, or formula that was not suggested by the bakery itself.
